“I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own, if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, to be realistic, to remember the limitations of being human.” – Oriah Mountain Dreamer

My interest in the body and healing truly began through my passion of art. As soon as I could hold a paintbrush I have been painting the world around me with the human body being my favorite subject. I eventually received my BFA in painting with a focus on the body in movement. While in school, I was introduced to yoga, which became my next passion.

My interest in the body and healing truly began through my passion of art. As soon as I could hold a paintbrush I have been painting the world around me with the human body being my favorite subject. I eventually received my BFA in painting with a focus on the body in movement. While in school, I was introduced to yoga, which became my next passion. I received my vinyasa yoga training in 2009, and have been teaching ever since. My teaching focuses on healing through movement, but also on seeking joy in every moment.

The more I taught yoga the more I realized how I would like a more complete understanding of the body – it’s anatomy and physiology – as well as a refined touch to better assist my yoga students in class. This desire and my growing interest in healing arts is what led me to massage school. Massage was something that I had never thought that I would get into or even make a career out of, but after the first day at the Blue Ridge School of Massage and Yoga, I knew where I belonged. I graduated from massage school in 2010 and was trained primarily in Swedish, deep tissue, Hot Stone massage, and myofascial work along with some Travell, Strain-Counterstrain, Reiki 1, Shiatsu, Thai Yoga, and Cranial Sacral work. With the influence of one of my teachers, Chris Pohowsky, I continued my education in bodywork in Boulder, Colorado at the Rolf Institute® of Structural Integration. I have been a Certified Rolfer™ since December of 2012, and have continued my studies in myofascial work with Til Luchau of Advanced-Trainings. I am an assistant to his trainings and a provider of his work.

I enjoy seeing others grow, heal, and laugh, and I love that my work can help facilitate that process. Life, along with your body, should be both enjoyed and loved, and I believe that the approach to healing should be the same. I try to encourage a joyous, though sometimes tough, exploration of the body in my sessions. I like to think of my approach to bodywork as a listening approach that follows each person’s story. Instead of forcing my hands through the tissue, I try to listen and allow a person’s body to melt and open, ultimately allowing innate wholeness and healing to emerge from within as their story unfolds.
