I have always been interested in fitness and health. I was an active child participating in dance and gymnastics. I was a competitive gymnast for a majority of my childhood and my first job ever was teaching gymnastics to kids. During and after high school I was a professional model, living in Hollywood and traveling around the world. Modeling was a wonderful experience but after a few years of it I realized it wasn’t the profession for me. I had a growing interest in fitness and health and decided to pursue that. While in college I worked as a personal trainer, and studied Biology graduating with a BS in 2002. I worked briefly as a biologist and then enrolled in acupuncture school and a massage therapist programin 2004. I liked the focus on energy and meditation in acupuncture school and found that I really love hands on healing work. I shifted my focus to bodywork and energetic healing and soon began adding Reiki and sound healing into my practice which my massage clients loved. I started out using tuning forks on acupuncture points, meridians, chakras, and over tight muscles and joints and found they amplified the effects of the massage. I soon began adding other elements of sound healing to my practice including voice, crystal singing bowls, and gongs.
Around the time I started doing massage I also discovered hoop dance. I saw a performance and thought it looked so fun. I eventually took classes and began to teach. I worked with one of the first large hoop companies leading teacher trainings and doing performances around the world. I found that hooping not only is a fantastic workout, but it also makes people happy. It’s hard to be grumpy in the hoop…it’s a natural mood booster! I discovered yoga in early 2000 and after 10 years of working on my practice I completed a teacher training. I love to offer Yoga, Hoop Dancing, Massage & Sound either by themselves or in any combination desired. We vastly improve our strength, flexibility, cardio, coordination, agility we de-compress, de-stress and most important of all, experience joy and healing!
