A facilitator to help you unwind and reset the body and the mind.
Aloha! I am a professional teacher offering services in yoga, massage, Āyurveda, and life coaching, here to serve your deepest spiritual goals.
I graduated with a Masters in Divinity (MDiv) from Harvard Divinity School where I honed my skills as a birth chaplain as well as a spiritual care provider for end-of-life concerns in both hospital and hospice settings. Prior to Harvard, I got certified as an Āyurvedic practitioner at the Āyurvedic Institute (www.ayurveda.com) over two years of in depth study with Dr. Vasant Lad.
In addition, I wanted to delve deep into yoga alongside my pursuit of Āyurveda, and so I trained under a 200 hour RYT program over the course of a year as an Ayuryoga instructor. Ayuryoga balances the body and prevents disease through doshic alignment, seasonal balancing practices, and understanding one's unique constitution. I am also a licensed massage therapist focusing on prenatal and postpartum massage and have assisted many women as a doula during the birth process for over ten years.
In my private practice and teaching, I focus on inner alignment to allow for balance in the body and mind.
