She merges intentions, with breath and joint free movement with her knowledge of energy lines that run through the body to help you recognize your own inner strength, resilience and amazing abilities.


“I love it when the spark of life starts to shine through the practitioners eyes; the joy when people get a breakthrough and the community which grows as people find connections between fellow practitioners.  It is also an honor to be able to create a space where people can just simply relax and enjoy their own personal sanctuary.”
