Being sensitive in an insensitive world can come with many challenges. As a particularly sensitive soul, I know these challenges deeply. I spent many years of my life in a constant state of stress and anxiety, and I did not trust myself, my body or life. I absorbed everyone else's issues and did not know how to stand in my power and believe in myself.
My personal journey to empowered sensitivity wasn't easy. But no matter what I went through (chronic illness, anxiety, depression, nervous system dysregulation, trauma and more), I never let it stop me from working to achieve my vision of being both sensitive and strong. I knew deep down that I wasn't meant to live this way and I wasn't going to stop until I found my own power. I know I was meant to go through these challenges because through the process of healing and empowering myself I have developed the unique gifts and perspective to guide others on their own healing journey. I've spent almost two decades gathering the best tools to help sensitive souls find their strength and I want to share them with you!
My Yoga Journey
I fell in love with yoga in college while volunteering and living at Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health in the Berkshires in 2007.
In 2008, I trained on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica at the Nosara Yoga Institute with Don and Amba Stapleton. I have also been strongly influenced by master teachers Barbara Benagh, Kate Greer, Simon Park and Judith Hanson Lasater and I have trained in Prenatal Yoga, Relax and Renew Restorative Yoga, Yin Yoga, Kids Yoga, Prana Flow and JourneyDance. My classes will encourage you to listen to your body, move with intention and enjoy being yourself in the moment. I feel so lucky to get to customize my classes for sensitive souls through my virtual studio.
I am an Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT, YACEP) with the Yoga Alliance and have been teaching for over 12 years. I offer private and group sessions via Zoom. Contact me for more information or to schedule a session.
