Are you living the life of your dreams?

Helping people discover their inner and outer essence / beauty.

My Commitment to my clients:

I believe humans are WHOLE and COMPLETE and there is a unique divine spark within, guiding us, full of the perfect answers for each of us.


I hold my clients to living and becoming your best authentic self.


I serve clients of all ages, genders, body types, levels, and religious affiliations. I meet each client where they are on that day and hold space for them accordingly.  


Often our strength lies in one aspect (heart, mind, and body), coaching is about an alignment of the three parts, via an artful system of integration helping you live authentically. Allowing that “still small voice” to speak loudly, driving our dreams, bringing us to be present


This time in human evolution has such possibility for a change of consciousness. Would you like to be a part of the creation?

Living Yoga off the Mat


Learn to bring the beauty and sense of calm that yoga brings to the “mat” into your life”. I help clients use the wisdom of yoga, both the philosophy and the poses to help them live/create their most authentic life achieving their highest purpose and potential. Whether you consider yourself a true “yogi” or have never set foot in a yoga class, this method is available for everyone. No prior experience is necessary, and no questions are seen as ridiculous and hamstrings of any length are welcome.


Learn to bring the beauty, intuition, guidance, and sense of calm that yoga brings to the "mat" into your daily life “off the mat”. Use the wisdom from ancient yoga poses and philosophy to gain insight into your daily life. As we create and fulfill our best selves and let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others’ permission to do the same raising the level of collective consciousness. 


This type of coaching operates on several levels of consciousness simultaneously and permeates all aspects of your being. From your heart and soul, you’ll dare to devise a dream. With your mind, you’ll translate the at dream into plans, and with your whole body, you’ll execute.​

No prior yoga experience or knowledge necessary. Physical movements are adjusted on an individual basis. No religious affiliation necessary. All religious affiliations including atheism welcome.
