Yoga is about creating a balance of both strength and flexibility in the body, a balance between vibrant energy and quiet stillness, and ultimately a balance in life as a whole. In my classes and private sessions, we mindfully work through physical postures and breath work to help cultivate a focused, calm mind alongside a strong, flexible body. I offer modifications to meet the needs of those present, and I specialize in gentle yoga with therapeutic elements, as well as restorative yoga.
Mindfulness & Meditation
Mindfulness and meditation training is about learning how to be present and cultivate a more clear, calm, and focused mind. I teach a variety of grounded techniques and can help you work toward deepening your practice, so you may find peace in stressful moments to come. Benefits include: lower blood pressure, reduction in chronic pain and stress levels, improved mental concentration, improved confidence, better sleep and an increase in overall enjoyment of life.
Coaching & Counseling
The one constant in life is change, and adapting can be difficult for all of us. Whether you need someone to just listen or provide gentle guidance for life changes, losses, depression, anxiety or other challenges, the confidential ear of a trained counselor can help ease the stress of daily life. I’ve worked with individuals of all ages, from children to the elderly, and my professional experience spans from personal counseling to corporate environments for employees and managers alike. I’m here to listen and support you as we break down the barriers holding you back.
Nutrition & Wellness
I work with a concept called bio-individuality, which focuses on your personal make-up to determine what foods support your unique needs, your lifestyle, your personal preferences and your background. I work with individuals, as well as groups, to develop specific wellness programs where you’ll set and accomplish goals, explore new foods, understand and reduce cravings, increase your energy, and feel better in your body. We will discuss your unique situation in depth and determine how I can help. Although I am based in Pittsburgh, PA, I can work with you no matter where you live.
