For a long time, I didn’t feel at home in my own body. I felt more betrayed by its inability to measure up to the long list of expectations imposed on it. Even in my attempts to wind down, rest seemed nearly impossible for extended periods of time and discomfort was a constant companion. As I sought for solutions, I couldn’t help but notice how many of my family members in this life and the next suffered similar experiences of pain and suffering.
Inspired to change things for myself and future generations, I set out to begin a process of self-study. I learned about the language of the mind–body connection and the depth of our innate healing intelligence. Amazed at the wisdom and effectiveness of various ancient techniques, I eagerly worked on my personal health and holistic well-being. This activated my desire to pursue a yoga practice and eventually earn my yoga teacher certification as well as receive training in bodywork and energy therapies.
Through these modalities, I have been able to dive more deeply into self-discovery and tap into healing power that has completely changed my life. Since then, self-care has become a standing ritual of self-love and spiritual growth to support me as I encounter the stressors of life. The passion of my work is to provide the knowledge and tools for others to do the same for themselves.
