hello friends

First of all, let me just say that I am beyond grateful for my life -- all of it! I am grateful for the good times, as well as the heartaches, struggles, challenges, and the many difficult lessons I've had to learn along the way. Everything has contributed to the person I am today and I am deeply honored to be of service to the world!

my journey

As a fellow human, who is highly sensitive to subtle energies and the world we live in, I understand firsthand the complexities and uncertainties we all face. In a world that is constantly shifting, with extreme global difficulties, it's more important than ever to find solace and stability within ourselves.

I grew up in semi-religious mormon family. I had very kind, loving and supportive parents, but like many families, we had our share of struggles. Growing up in the church was difficult for me. The strict guidelines combined with my own childhood trauma, left me feeling alone and confused for much of my life. The church brought up deep feelings of shame and unworthiness, which I later learned ran deep in my ancestral lineage. The journey to find my own truth is what led me to the transformative practice of yoga in 2005.

Yoga became my sanctuary—a path of healing and self-discovery that extended far beyond the physical postures. Through years of dedicated practice and study, I began to embody the profound teachings of yoga, and came to realize that yoga was so much more than a physical (asana) practice. Yoga is the union of Self with the divine. It is the remembering of our true nature. This realization inspired me to become a yoga teacher in 2013, with the goal to focus more on the spiritual and energetic aspects of yoga with the intention to help bring people to experience a deeper state. Over the years I have come to understand that this state is a deep and authentic connection to one's soul.

In parallel with my yoga journey, I found myself drawn to energy work. Becoming a Reiki Master allowed me to deepen my connection to subtle energies and spiritual guidance, complementing my yoga practice in profound ways. These modalities, coupled with guidance from mentors, supported me in navigating my own healing journey, stepping into a more authentic expression of myself.

Today, as we navigate the challenges of our ever-changing world, my heart is devoted to serving the world, as a beacon of light and hope for those seeking grounding, alignment and support amidst the chaos. My offerings are here to support you in finding solace and stability within, helping you cultivate resilience, inner peace, and a deep connection to your true essence.

Thank you for being a part of this incredible journey. Together, let us continue to explore, grow, and illuminate the path to a life filled with love, purpose, and joy.

With boundless love and gratitude,
