Yoga and Energy work for Body, Mind and Spirit
Weekly Class Schedule
Currently working with private and semi-private classes virtually. If you are interested in setting up private or semi-private classes at your location please contact me.
Currently teaching at the Duarte and Arcadia Senior Centers. However things are about to change...
Life gets more interesting every day. Currently I am teaching in person sessions with the cities of Duarte and Arcadia. Neither will be doing summer sessions. HOWEVER...For the Fall session, the city of Duarte will be offering something very special for my students. As most of you know, my husband and I will be moving during the summer and because it is out of the area I will be offering Zoom sessions. The city of Duarte will be allowing you to do Zoom from your home BUT they will also be Zooming me into the Yoga room at the Senior Center so you can gather together as a group and I will be on screen teaching. I can't wait. It sounds like fun and I will still be able to see your smiling faces. YAY!!!
Private and Semi-Private Sessions
Email, text or call for an appointment
Reiki/Energy Work. I use Reiki inspired healing methods to help you move energy through blockages you may have built up. Reiki can enable relaxation. It is a safe and natural method for supporting mental, physical and spiritual health and well being. There is no real set time for each session. Healing moves at it's own pace. Typically a session lasts anywhere from 45 to 60 minutes. DISTANCE SESSIONS AVAILABLE AS WELL
I use traditional methods to find the perfect essential oils that will work well with your personal needs. (ie. your Dosha, Chakra blockages and what your body, mind and spirit are going through)
Private or Semi Private Specialized Yoga Classes - I have certifications in specialized Yoga practices that can help those who are going through specific issues. Everyone has their own body issues. Pain can be a difficult thing to live with but with the right combination of stretching and strengthening relief can be in sight. I work with people dealing with pain, inflammation, injuries, along with every day wear on the body. If you think yoga would be good for you, but you aren't comfortable with group situations or if you aren't sure you can actually do yoga, let me help you. Yoga is good for every BODY, and every BODY is different and needs different kinds of attention.
Guided Meditation-I have training in several types of guided meditation. Not only can meditation help release physical, spiritual and emotional pain, it can also help you find your way through life and your healing process. PTSD, physical pain, emotional pain and blockages, spiritual guidance, letting go of unhealthy baggage. Meditation is not about emptying the mind but rather recognizing and addressing what you are holding on to that is keeping your from growing, healing, and moving on. Yoga Nidra is a very effective tool in tackling these issues, becoming aware of your body and allowing yourself to recognize and let go of those things you have no control over.
Gentle and Chair Yoga
Gentle Yoga practices are good for everyone. I can customize your practice to fit whatever might be going on with your body from injury, inactivity, aging, or just simply because you prefer a gentle approach. This method also works very well for physically fit people who are in need of gentle strength training, stretching and breathing techniques. Breathwork can be good as well for everyone including athletes, divers, runners, swimmers, and also those with breathing challenges.
Chair yoga is not just for seniors. It is the perfect way to continue to keep yoga in your life through physical issues, healing from medical procedures, or if you feel you are struggling with balance, strength etc. It is a wonderful alternative to a traditional yoga class.
We use the chair as the ultimate prop to help build confidence, strength, balance and to continue to allow the body to move in a very gentle and supported way. Although it is not just for seniors, seniors can find it the perfect class for them. It is also very beneficial to those working through fibromyalgia, lupus, RA, chronic pain, etc.

WATER - YOGA
If you have access to a pool I would be happy to do WATER-YOGA as private or semi-private sessions. Doing yoga in a pool allows us to get the wonderful benefits of yoga without putting and structural weight on the body. So all of the stretch but with a much more gentle approach for the body. This is an amazing experience for anyone but especially for those who are dealing with chronic pain, arthritis, fibromyalgia, joint replacement and so much more
Meditation sessions will be coming back shortly. Until then please feel free to contact me for information on both private and semi-private sessions. These can be done virtually as well.

I am available for spiritual life coaching which involves several things including, but not limited to, talking sessions, journaling, specialized meditation, yoga, and Ayurvedic practices
