I am often heard saying, “No matter the question, the answer lies with the ancient sisters – Ayurveda and Yoga”. A well studied and practiced yogi, I believe the body and mind are vessels Breath inspires. Unfortunately, as a child I suffered sustained trauma that caused psychological and emotional suffering, and breath wasn’t free to move. My healing was slow, until I realized what was missing in my approach was my own energy, not more doctors. As a result I founded Self-Care Institute, Inc. in 2008, with the vision of enhancing health care through self care. My credentials further express my devotion and determination to learn, know and cultivate wellbeing. Today, a behavior expert and Board Certified Health and Wellness Coach, Master ISHTA Yoga Teacher/Trainer, Ayurvedic Health Counselor, Reiki Master and Ordained Interfaith Minister with four years of formal shamanic training, I have created a multidisciplinary approach to wellness that I call Dosha Coaching.
My love for facilitating the condition of yoga grows with every class. I witness how energy flows, or doesn’t, and offer my knowledge and intuitive gifts to assist students in their inquiry. Ultimately learned that its a question, not an answer, that opens the mind and heart. So you’ll likely hear me ask, What seeks expression through you? A new resident of Rhode Island, I moved from New York
in early 2022, and am thrilled to join the Raffa Yoga Community and introduce, Yoga for your Ayurvedic Dosha and Restorative Yoga Nidra classes.
