My Journey began with the burning desire and deep knowing that I brought myself to this Earth to help others heal. Finding my body weighted down like a sunken ship by emotional pain and health issues, I realized first I had to work with myself. So the work began and with commitment to my healing and the goal of helping others, the universe has provided me with powerful tools and a deep understanding into the human experience.
My personal work began in a therapist’s office, one day she looked at me and said, “I want you to try this breath and body work I am sharing.” To which, I replied, “No, thank you.” I felt better about paying her to hear me talk then actually having to do the work myself, until one day I had to find the tools to better deal with the depression and anxiety I was experiencing.. After two months of intensive work together using breathwork, she handed me two texts books and sent me on my way. I spent the next two years practicing this work on my own and allowing it to open me from the inside out and envelop my being. The trauma, the pain, the energetic blocks I released in this time were huge, my own breath was healing me from debilitating symptoms.
After taking a 200 hour Yoga Teacher training on the Big Island of Hawaii, I was led to a yoga festival where I found “breathwork” on the schedule. I dropped into a session with Michael Brian Baker with no expectations or ideas of what was going to happen. After that session I knew I had to teach this modality, it was simple, profound, and transformational. I took Healer training 1-3 with breathwork facilitator and teacher David Elliot in November 2015 and then worked under Michael Brian Baker assisting him at yoga festivals May through September in 2016 with his Guardian training, as well as his level 1 breathwork training. My body has been my greatest guide and teacher showing me the spaces and places within myself that need work. My body shows me how to release stuck energy through breath, movement, and energetic practices.
