“Helping people slow down and find peace, calm, and reduced or relieved pain amidst all of the stresses (both physical and mental) and turbulence life can encompass brings me great joy.”

This fully guided class helps link the natural rhythms of the breath to the movements of the body helping the student relax, feel grounded, increase concentration, engage with their surroundings, and stay present in the now.

With a focus on internal awareness, cultivate a still mind and soothe the tissues of the body, improve joint mobility, develop flexibility, reduce stress and anxiety, rejuvenate and restore to better adapt to the changes and challenges of every day life.

“My journey began as passion to see the world many moons ago. I was only 18 when I took my blank passport and crossed my first border. I felt really inspired and adopted traveling as a hobby.”

Reconnective Healing is an energy healing approach that completely transcends other energy healing modalities. It does not require any special preparations or rituals. It is a hands-off approach, facilitated either in-person or at a distance. 

The Personal Reconnection is a structured, precise application of the Reconnective Healing Frequencies, which not only brings us back into balance and optimal health, but tends to accelerate our personal evolution helping us realize or manifest our intended life path and purpose.

I am using the Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique (QHHT), developed and used by Dolores Cannon thousands of times. QHHT is a powerful tool to access that all knowing part of ourselves that has been called The Higher Self, The Oversoul, even the Soul itself. 

Breath-based Hatha Yoga style class that focuses on moving through the poses slowly and mindfully.
