I’m passionate about encouraging my clients & students to bring awareness to their choices so that they can cultivate healthier, happier lives based on their unique constitutions. I use my extensive training in mindfulness, yoga, & the Ayurvedic system to guide people towards a better life balance that sustainably supports their long term well-being.
