CYT (Certified Yoga Teacher Anusara-Inspired)
My interest in healing and the human body started at a very young age. I recall giving family members foot rubs with almond oil and drawing pictures of people inside out, trying to imagine the physical structures of the human body.
I began my yogic studies in 2005 and have been a successful and vibrant yoga teacher since 2008. The extensive knowledge of anatomy and biomechanics learned from yoga transfers seamlessly into my massage and bodywork practice here in Tacoma, Wa.
My passionate curiosities about anatomy and alternative healing practices led me to Thailand several times where I studied and practiced the healing art of Traditional Thai Massage. My current focus of bodywork has been on Structural integration, studying and practicing with various bodywork masters in Tacoma, WA and the greater Pacific Northwest. I strive for each massage session to leave you feeling lighter, more open physically and emotionally, and ready to meet the world with enthusiasm and integrity.
I currently teach yoga at Expand located on 6th Avenue in Tacoma WA. I teach both the original Hot yoga series,and anusara inspired non-hot vinyasa. Schedule below. I offer various workshops throughout the year, as well as, private sessions for those who would like to further thier practice or to learn in private and more concentrated sessions.
This space is dedicated to your health, healing, and wellbeing where I specialize in Structural Integration bodywork such as: Trigger point therapy, 10 session Zen Bodytherapy, Thai and Fly, as well as, Relaxation therapies including: Thai yoga massage, Swedish massage, and Deep Tissue massage.
