You're driven, smart and at the prime of your life
You feel very accomplished professionally and yet there’s still so much you want to explore and share with the world.
At this point, it’s become obvious your health is priceless, your best prize ever. Moving through life healthily is your only option.
You need your body and your vitality to match the power for expansion you carry inside.
In a nutshell, you want ALL of you, ALL the time. Completely here, 100% available on all fronts, so you can live your life to the fullest and share your fullness with the ones around you.
All of my clients have families and super busy schedules. When they notice the after taste of our sessions, it’s crystal clear it needs to be an ongoing part of their self-care.
They make time for it because it DELIVERS exactly what they had been needing, but were not aware of:
A moment of pause from their hectic lives to unwind, self-regulate, reclaim their body,
calm the mind and nourish the spirit.
A moment to get themselves back, entirely.
Each session is co-created: I tune into them, pick up their vibe, ask a few questions and draw from my magic therapeutic yoga hat the appropriate tools and skills to help that human, at that particular moment in time.
In that sense, each session is highly tailored, modifiable, intuitive and spot on. Just what the integrative holistic doctor prescribed!
My approach to private yoga is a blend which draws from the many specialized trainings I’ve taken throughout the past 12 years. In addition to holding a bachelor’s degree in psychology (2008), I’ve studied extensively yoga psychology, somatics, therapeutic yoga, biomechanics, soft tissue release, mindfulness and breathing techniques.
Each session is a co-creation. I sense your energy, observe your body, breathing, mood and holding patterns. I then create a session based on the feedback you provide, so you always get what you need.
The way I work with my clients is relationship and trust based. There’s a specific energetic quality when you’re receiving someone’s full attention.
My purpose as a teacher is to pay attention, listen to what you say and observe your body move. As a result, you drop a bit more deeply into you. In this 1-on-1 context, there’s a sense of deep presence and connectedness that feels fresh and enlivening.
I’m a strong believer that whatever change you wish to manifest in your life, starts with fully trusting the ones guiding you. I am committed to helping you recharge physically and mentally so you can feel more centered and energized to live your life to the fullest.
Let’s look eye to eye and establish some real, meaningful exchange, online or in-person.
how it works
You arrive curious, hopeful, available to engage and trusting this modality will help you.
We do an initial intake where I ask a lot of questions about what has happened to your body thus far and what you wish to explore.
You’re usually either new to this work and/or fresh out of physical therapy.
As we get to know one another, you feel comfortable saying no, as well as exploring avenues that might be more physically and/or emotionally challenging.
At this point, we fully trust each other and the process.
I design a 12 session private yoga program based exactly on what you want. One session at a time, we observe how you move, open, breathe, ache and resist.
You’re becoming reacquainted with your body, refining your ability to sense and feel. To most, this is a coming back. To some, it’s their first time fully inhabiting their body.
The sense of connecting to your own vitality keeps you interested, curious and looking forward to being on the mat!
At it’s core, therapeutic yoga tools are to help you be 100% available to yourself so you can live your life to the fullest.

I felt so deeply relieved and relaxed after my first yoga class I could barely get off the floor.
I had just said goodbye to my boyfriend who was going to live in another country. I thought I was pretty good at keeping my cool about this major life change, but that yoga class totally exposed the truth simmering underneath.
A dear friend invited me to attend her yoga class. Without major expectations, I decided to go. Towards the end, she guided the group through a beautiful visualization. Suddenly, I felt my heart beating faster, the chest expanding, my throat gripping... tears down my face. What was THAT all about?
The invincible wonder woman inside me was caught completely off guard.
The mask fell off, giving space to vulnerability, sadness and overwhelm. I don't usually connect with that part of myself. Do you?
In that moment of unexpected surrender, I remember vividly wanting to remain very, very still.
It was that quality of unwavering inner stillness - no matter what I'm going through - I became interested in recreating that in my everyday life.
Do you tend to be over-scheduled, mentally scattered and physically tired? Do you walk through life feeling like a chicken with her head cut off? It doesn't have to be like that.
After over 12 years teaching yoga, I've realized what I am meant to do in this planet: help people be more balanced and centered in their lives, one breath at a time.
I look forward to getting to know you, what drives you nuts and what makes you tick.
We're all in this journey together.
