reclaim your vitality

When I first set out on my career path, I had just graduated as an environmental engineer + I wanted to help heal the planet.  As I progressed along my journey, however, I realized that in order to heal the planet, we must first heal ourselves.  As above, so below as the axiom goes.

We have fallen asleep as a species + in our slumber, lost the SPARK that ignites us.  We have lost the MOVEMENT that fans our flames.  We have forgotten our CONNECTION with life all around us that keeps us turned on + fully engaged in our human vessel.

My passion lies in helping people find their spark, reclaim their movement + begin to remember + feel their primal connection to life around them. Wherever you are in your journey to embodied wholeness + optimal health, I can help you achieve your goals.


supportive practices + lifestyle choices

Movement + play have always been a driving force in my life + on my path to finding optimal health.  I have been teaching various modalities of yoga + movement since receiving my certification in 2001 after an intensive training at Nosara Yoga Institute in Costa Rica.

As a life-long dancer, my practice began in early childhood.  Since then I have studied many forms of dance including modern, temple, + West African, the form I’ve focused on for the past 14 years. As an avid participant in the circus community, I’ve been learning, playing + teaching acro yoga + hoop dance for over 10 years. Beginning 7 years ago I developed a love for aerial silks + now incorporate the flow of various fabric forms into my movement.

My journey included a transformational experience in 2011, wherein I realized the awesome healing + contemplative power of breath + movement utilized in my own growth + evolution.   I’ve set out on a mission to help others bring its potency into their own lives.

After the birth of my children, as I saw food from a new perspective + I began to study nutrition.  I learned about traditional diets + gut health as the basis for a strong immune system.  I find immense joy in creating recipes from whole + nutrient-dense foods, limiting sugars + while enhancing nutrition.

With a passion for ancient cultural movement + ritual, I have gladly accepted any chance to travel the world + steep within these sacred forms. As an avid music connoisseur, I’ve devoted thousands of hours in ecstatic prayer, dancing in co-creation with live sonic textures. I have taught + performed at festivals including Sonic Bloom, Unifier, DiscJam, YarmonyGrass, + Strangecreek. My life’s early focus on mathematics informs my movement.  Exploration of exotic time signatures + polyrhythms is a meditation for releasing thought + ego, where peak moments create a channel for divine flow + communication.

I live in a geodesic dome homestead with my husband, Christiaan + 3 children, Cobe, Kai + Naiomi. I have a degree in environmental engineering + love to share my passion for play, nutrient-dense nutrition, practical homeopathy + the environment with any who wish to explore.
