Book a private session, take a group class or learn self care at any age.
In my private sessions, we focus on your specific health issues, injuries, limitations, abilities and fitness goals. Private sessions are the best way to create a program that works for your individual needs. For beginners, I will teach you how to develop a safe and enduring movement practice that meets your long-term fitness goals. For seasoned athletes and movement practitioners, my sessions provide the opportunity to take your practice a step further by honing in on areas that are used, underused and misused. Flexible scheduling is available in my home studio or I will travel to you.
From Yoga Tune Up® to vinyasa flow, my group classes offer a range of styles and formats that focus on alignment, balance, posture mechanics, self care and precise instruction. I assess the needs and abilities of the students in my class and offer modifications for students who have injuries or limitations.
In office, corporate wellness classes are also available!

Breast Surgery Care
Women undergo breast surgery for a variety of reasons: biopsy, mastectomy (cancer, BRCA gene), breast augmentation (lift, reduction, implants, tummy tuck) and gender reassignment. Physicians and office staff assist with post-surgical care and recovery of the surgical site, but not the surrounding areas that are also affected: the neck, shoulders, upper and lower back, arms, ribs, and core. As a certified yoga therapist, self-care specialist and someone who has undergone elective breast surgery, I understand both the emotional and physical stresses related to breast surgery.
With my breast-surgery-care program, the whole body is addressed. Through this holistic approach, your mind will be calmed, your body will be strengthened and your spirit will be rejuvenated. Using breath work, corrective exercises and therapeutic massage, I will help you prepare for and recover from surgery— enabling you to resume daily activities with a renewed sense of confidence.
