like so many people, in the past i've found myself living on automatic pilot, distracted and unsatisfied with my quality of life. did you ever feel like that? two things have completely changed that for me: yoga and meditation. although I had been practicing yoga for 17 years in 2013, it wasn't until I resigned from a job that had been holding me back on many levels, completed the yoga teacher training I was taking at the time, began meditating daily and teaching yoga that I realized the life-changing potency of these practices.
i teach private yoga and small-group sessions and yoga sessions for wedding parties at my beautiful home studio in the woods on vashon Island. i'm also a wedding officiant and believe it's so important for anyone getting married to feel grounded and present for their big day! i will be offering one or two small-group classes each week at the studio beginning in 2018, schedule to be determined. i will begin studying to become a certified meditation teacher in 2018.
we all need to give ourselves the space to come home to ourselves and live the life of purpose and fulfillment we are here on this planet to live. it would be an honor to assist you in that journey.
private and small-group yoga sessions
intrigued by the idea of yoga and know that you could benefit - but don't like the idea of going to a regular yoga studio or gym? i like to think of this studio as 'the yoga studio for misfit yogis' - a place where each individual is given the space to come home to themselves through yoga and meditation in their own way, at their own pace. meeting you where you are is my mantra.
yoga for wedding parties
you put so much into planning your wedding day. allow yourself the gift of feeling grounded, centered and fully present for one of the most important days of your life - through a private yoga session for you and your partner, your whole wedding party or your family. i will customize the session to meet your needs, whether you're a dedicated yogi or have never done yoga in your life. melt stress, open up space in your body for finding your true voice, soothe your emotions - and so much more.
i am a certified life-cycle wedding celebrant, and will create a personalized and unique ceremony that integrates your story, beliefs and values in a way that makes your wedding day truly meaningful and memorable. if you aren't connected to a specific religion but consider yourself spiritual, i can provide an alternative way to honor this transition in a beautiful and expressive way.
