I am here to empower you to look at who you are and become aware of yourself as a unique individual. As a Health Coach, I’m a supportive mentor and guide that will help you discover which foods and lifestyle choices make you feel best. I’m an accountability partner and friend who gives an unbiased approach, while encouraging you to live a life you love. What I offer is a customized program tailored to your specific needs, where we explore all aspects of your health and wellbeing; including physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual. The goal is to achieve optimal health and balance in all areas, and face any resistance to change stemming from self-doubt or low self-esteem. I encourage self-exploration and strongly believe the willingness to explore what lies beneath the surface is a key factor in creating healthy and wholesome patterns of living. I believe that nutrition + fitness is a gateway to being happier in all aspects. I do not prescribe a one-diet-plan-fits-all mentality, or tell you what you should and should not do, but rather work with you to create lifestyle changes that are sustainable and effective for your body. I believe in healthy eating and living actively, as well as leaving flexibility to have fun and enjoy your life, rather than striving for unattainable perfection. *** COMPLIMENTARY 30-Minute Discovery Session - During this session, we will discuss your health history and your most pressing health concerns. We’ll also discuss how we can best partner to create a plan to meet your personal goals. Explore how I can help you renew your life!!
A variety of traditional and modern yoga practices are offered for individuals and small groups, tailored to accommodate your specific needs and wellness goals. No matter what level, from beginners to advanced practitioners, all can expect growth and expansion. I bring the benefits of private yoga instruction to you, in the comfort of your home, workplace or studio, recreational parks, beachfront locations or any designated venue. Practice options are Hatha Fundamentals, Hatha Moon, Sun and Fire, Deep Stretch Restore, Yoga Sculpt, Meditation and Breathing. A key difference in Hatha Yoga versus most modern yoga styles is the priority of function over form. Function is the effect of a pose; the specific movement of the spine, the impact on internal organs, physiology, subtle anatomy, mind, and energy. Hatha Yoga is an intentional stage by stage progression based on time tested ancient knowledge aiming to guide us toward living an extraordinary life. All classes offered target the full scope of the human being: physical, energetic, mental, and spiritual. Yoga for kids: yoga teaches self-regulation, body awareness, balance, hand-eye coordination, focus, coping strategies, language and communication, strength and flexibility, self-confidence, motor skills, and social skills. A dedicated and intentional yoga practice that includes breathing techniques, behavioral guidelines, and physical postures in a fun and creative way can be incredibly valuable for children of all abilities.
*Private Sessions: This one-on-one program supports children who have various special behavioral, physical and learning needs. Classes are tailored to support the unique needs of your child in the comfort of your own home. *Family Sessions: The practice of yoga as a family is a fun and exciting way to spend time together, bond, develop better communication, and create a calm and peaceful home environment. Through family sessions you will learn simple yoga poses and breathing exercises in a step-by-step series. *Kids In The Kitchen: This program is designed to teach children how to navigate through the food system to find real food that’s both enjoyable and nutritious, and to teach the difference between whole versus processed foods. Together we find ways to make mealtime enjoyable so that whole foods are associated with pleasure. This includes hands on activities custom tailored to your child’s needs and preferences.
