All the freaky people make the beauty in the world!- Michael Franti

I believe when play, authenticity and vulnerability are shamelessly valued, our world will heal. I have long devoted my life to reminding those around me of the healing powers of play and love.

I believe when play, authenticity and vulnerability are shamelessly valued, our world will heal. I have long devoted my life to reminding those around me of the healing powers of play and love. Before I focused on yoga and bodywork, I sought to better understand and seek connection with the natural world. To that end, I earned a Bachelors of Science in Natural Resources from Colorado State University and served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Philippines. I have guided in the mountains of Alaska, massaged in Mexico, taught yoga Internationally and been driven by a deep sense of my personal mantra: I Effortlessly Direct my Playful Light with Wisdom. In 2003 I completed my first massage and Reiki course at the Gate Key Institute of Mind-Body Therapy. I also completed my first yoga teacher training at Kalani on the Big Island of Hawaii. In Hawaii, I also finished trainings in Polarity Therapy and Thai massage. In the years since I have completed over 500 additional hours of yoga teacher trainings. In 2010 I brought all my previous experience and training to my studies with the SOMA Institute of Neuromuscular Integration. Today, I focus on a practice that helps people experience long lasting relief from pain and greater joy in life. I have a bodywork practice, teach yoga, lead seasonal wellness retreats, practice aromatherapy, and am co-founder of the Shanti Center LLC in Bellingham, Washington. Playtime finds me with my 5yr old son, 1yr old daughter and partner outside as much as possible, enjoying all the maritime & mountain beauty the Pacific Northwest has to offer.
