My yoga practice began in 2004 in Kuwait after the birth of my oldest son. I was looking for a way to get back into shape while cultivating some balance in my life. I studied Ashtanga Yoga both privately with my teacher and independently for a decade before I decided to take my practice to the next level.
I hold a M.Ed in Curriculum Development, I'm an E-RYT 500 with Yoga Alliance, and I'm a C-IAYT Yoga Therapists serving populations in Eating Recovery, Behavioral Health, and Cardiac Rehabilitation. Over the past decade, I've built a sustainable company in the health and wellness space that is geared to professionalizing the industry and creating equitable employment opportunities.
I teach public classes in Austin, Texas, I teach corporate classes and private classes as my schedule permits, and I host workshops and retreats. This spring I opened my first yoga studio on the campus of ACC at Highland. Our 2,400 square foot facility offers daily vinyasa classes, specialty classes, yoga therapy, and yoga teacher training. Our classes, yoga therapy sessions, and workshops are all donation-based. I’m excited about the unfolding experience and grateful for all that brought me here. I look forward to connecting with you soon!
Frequently Asked Questions
With nearly twenty years of experience working with eating recovery, I've come to understand our relationship with food is complicated. Developing healthy eating habits can sometimes activate past traumas that still linger in the unconscious mind. With this in mind, I decided to develop this course to help practitioners and their clients learn to transform their experiences by nourishing their bodies. This certification is designed to give you all of the necessary knowledge and support to educate your clients and help them to come into balance through Ayurvedic holistic eating.
I sincerely hope you see the benefits of these philosophies and techniques first hand so that you can share your experience with your clients. When we can share from experiential learning we can truly teach and empower others. Throughout the course, you'll find downloadable tools and charts that will help inform your practice and you can always reach out for a one on one with me directly at no additional cost.
