I have been involved in physical fitness and athletic related activities as long I can remember. However, it wasn’t until my early 30’s that I was introduced to holistic wellness modalities of yoga and Pilates. Recently, I graduated from the Rolf Institute of Structural Integration. Synthesizing these modalities, I seek to help each individual cultivate their untapped potential and discover their authentic self. I believe that mindfully working with movement, breath, and intention can transform an individual on a variety of levels. Over the past decade of practicing and teaching, I have continued to learn from a diverse selection of movement modalities and happily share with individuals and groups.

I’m an E-RYT 500 Yoga alliance teacher and Certified Rolfer®.  I’ve learned Yoga in Mysore, India and taught Yoga in Shanghai and Taiwan since 2009. I’ve worked with people of all ages and helped them heal from various ailments and injuries.

YogaKinesis is my synthesis of the best aspects of Rolfing®, Yoga and Movement. I’ve drawn from my 20+ years of personal and professional experience to practice YK.
