Yoga Instruction and Assisted Stretching
I've always loved to observe the intimate connection between movement and mood: the calm stillness that follows a hike in the woods, the rush of endorphins you feel after you've just performed, or the exuberance of handstands, cartwheels, or just hanging upside down on the monkey bars.
Yoga takes advantage of this connection, presenting us with endless tools for healing. The human brain has the ability to rewire itself and yoga and meditation can create the groundwork for this transformation.
I believe by gaining greater understanding of our own bodies and minds, we can foster healthy relationships to ourselves, others, and the planet. In my private sessions and classes, I hope to share feel-good sequences, supportive adjustments and massage, and a curiosity about the mind, body, and breath.
I did my 200 hour teacher training and 30 hour Bridge Training at Kula Yoga Project under the direction of Nikki Vilella, Magi Pierce, Nikki Costello, and Jillian Turecki and my 60 hour Thai Yoga training with Al Turner II of Two Souls Thai Massage. Many thanks to all these wonderful teachers.

After being at the birth of my sister's first child, my interest in becoming a birth doula grew. In May of 2022 I did my training through DONA with Bruchy Mayer. Last April, I started a 6 month doula mentorship with Anna Cheechov. I'd love to use the skills I've gained as a yoga, meditation, and dance teacher and a Thai yoga practitioner, to help moms move through birth in a grounded, flexible, and creative way. Through readings and classes, I work to expand my knowledge, in order to provide resources and information to mothers through pregnancy and beyond.
$750 (this is flexible!) for birth doula package includes:
- 2-3 prenatal meetings (60-90 min each)
We'll prepare the birth wish list, can do meditation and/or yoga, and practice exercises and assists to use throughout the birth.
- The birth (time to meet your baby!)
I'll help you figure out a good time to go to the hospital or birth center, support you throughout the birth with whatever we've planned: meditation, breathing, massage, essential oils, etc. and I'll stay for a few hours as needed after the birth.
- 1-2 postnatal visits (60-120 min each)
Whatever you need in this time. I can babysit, cook, clean, give massage, lead yoga and/or meditation, or discuss strategies.

I am also the co-founder of Muliebris Dance Theatre. This company serves as a laboratory for investigating this life and the world around us through motion. Our method calls for dedication and hard play.
We employ the entire body in our storytelling, using the combined efforts of movement, voice, gesture, and expression to craft and shape each piece.
