Learning how to feel more connected, healed, and whole within my body, mind, and soul, has transformed my life and creativity over the last 16 years, when my my journey into yoga, mindfulness, and later, life coaching, began.
This life path has fueled an inner passion for sharing the tools that have helped me navigate anxiety, depression, uncertainty, and massive life changes, while building confidence, gaining clarity, and anchoring into a sense of purpose, trust, and faith.
It has been a slow but steady journey of reclamation; (the root belonging to "calling back the hawk that has been let fly") of uncovering and breaking down old paradigms, and rebuilding an inner sense of fortitude, self-worth, and resilience from the inside out, that has allowed my creativity and gifts to flourish.
This transformative journey has been one of the Phoenix: marrying the wing of Mindfulness with the wing of Compassion; the Head and the Heart. It has inspired my passion in supporting and championing others as they navigate their own inner journey of becoming.
This is the path that I strive to live, embody, and share in everything I bring forward into this world; in my art as well as in the experiences I facilitate for others.
