|Hi there, I have lived my life full of passion! & Trust! Trust in your own intuition—whether you are in labor, taking a yoga class or need some healing. These are the two key things that have motivated me to move through this journey of supporting others. I absolutely and positively love working with individuals moving to a state of health and well-being—especially pregnant mammas.
I continue to live this way each and every day.
Now, I am taking my passion to another level. Opening Yoga by Blisstopia. I started my training in yoga over 20 years ago. I became certified as a teacher shortly after. I teach Ashtanga, Hatha and prenatal yoga. I am certified as a yoga instructor with The Yoga Institute having trained with Lex Gillian and Stan Hafner, who was a student of P. Jois. My prenatal yoga training was completed with Robin Sale of Whole-birth Yoga. I also completed an advanced yoga teacher training with Frog Lotus Yoga.
Another passion of mine is babies. I am a certified doula through Doulas of North America (DONA). I absolutely and positively love working with individuals moving to a state of health and well-being—especially pregnant mammas. I have been a doula since 2002 and helped deliver over 400 new babies to the world. My style is relaxed, reassuring and focused. I have two children, both boys.
I have a Master’s degree in Counseling and Psychological Services, which has immensely helped me with my work as a Yoga teacher, doula, hypnotherapist, and healing touch therapist. With my certification as a hypnotherapist, I offer hypnotherapy for pain management during labor to my clients if they choose.
I also am a Certified Healing Touch Practitioner through Healing Touch International. My most recent certification is with The Chopra Center as a Perfect Health (Ayurveda) Instructor and Primordial Sound Meditation teacher. All of these modalities that I have been trained and practiced are all energy and healing work and I merge them together as needed. I am here to help. I look forward to seeing you in my yoga class soon. ~Namaste
