Q. What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
A. I try to go to India every year to study and get in touch with the land Ayurveda and Yoga was birthed from. i also take advantage of the cheap cost of books while there and stock up on some amazing books to read. And of course, everytime I get on my own mat or help a student I learn tons!

Q. How did you get started doing this type of work?
A. I had chronic pain and Western doctors just kept feeding me drugs.... I was 13 years old! This continued through 3 surgeries and then I discovered Acupuncture, Yin Yoga and Ayurveda. These helped me learn about my body and how to balance it. I have been pain free for over 5 years now and in better physical shape then I was 15 years ago!
Q. What types of customers have you worked with?
A. People looking to make a change in their lives and stop spinning over and over the story of pain in their body.
Q. Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
A. This past August I took 4 of my students to India for 15 days of Yoga and Ayurveda. While there we got to do some sightseeing, took a cooking class and did a TON of shopping! It was my first time leading a retreat and I learned so much. I am in the process of putting together another, more leisurely, retreat in Venezuela for late 2011 or early 2012. Stay tuned!
Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
A. Come to work. I facilitate healing. I’m not a Healer, I’m not a Yoga Guru, I don’t hold the magic cure in my hands. I create a space for you to do the healing, whatever shape that may come in. Within my own history of chronic pain and dis-ease I learned that there is no “cure” because there is no disease. We create dis-ease and we have the power to change it. I can help you do that. Ask me how.
