Massage Therapist & Yoga Instructor
As an experienced yoga teacher, previous studio owner, and 5 year practicing massage therapist, I have found the value in choosing a life centered around health. For me this means learning to move well, "think" in a healthy way, and discover the things you want to align your life with. Understanding in detail healthy bio-mechanics through the alignment based format of Anusara Yoga and Deep Tissue Structural massage continues to fuel my passion in helping people.
Having taught yoga for the last 10 years, I have discovered that teaching classes and yoga privates is one of the best ways to aid people in building healthy sustainable posture, bolster mental wellness, and build a more connected life style. In the last few years of competing locally on my bike, running a business, and building a non-traditional life-style I have discovered not only the value, but the absolute need in taking care of my body and preparing my mind through yoga, massage, meditation and personal awareness coaching.
My experience in this field of alternative health, and my own very active lifestyle has made it possible for me to help students seeking physical rehabilitation, injury prevention and strength training, mental health guidance, and healthier patterns of movement. Ultimately, my goal is to help you foster a life that builds happiness, health, and self-awareness into every-day living.
Yoga & Ayurveda Instructor
I am a senior practitioner at Rocksteady offering regular yoga classes, individually tailored private sessions, and Ayurveda workshops. We are all individual in our learning styles so having multiple ways to soak in the practices of yoga, meditation, breath work and Ayurveda (the sister science to yoga) is so very beneficial.
I have been teaching yoga for 10 years and practicing for 20. As a student of Anusara Yoga, Ayurveda, and the beautiful Sankhya and Tantric philosophies, I teach an alignment based, lifestyle enhancing, and philosophy rich practice. My belief is that by being an attentive student in your body and mind that you can make the most balanced and healthy choices that will serve you on your journey
As a rock climber of 20+ years, I know first-hand that it is crucial to take care of myself in intelligent and thoughtful ways. It is the only way to make it through the challenges that come up, whether physical, mental or emotional. Yoga, meditation, breath work and Ayurveda have been my personal wellness package.
Yoga & Workshop Instructor
As most know, I am an energetic instructor teaching classes, series, and workshops at Rocksteady. Over the years, I have studied and taught Pilates, TRX, group fitness, and myofascial release. Through this process, I have developed a passion for the biomechanics of healing. My study and practice has shown me time and time again that movement and adaptability are huge components to healing and preventing modern illness and injury. I am committed to using my classes as a pathway to help students tap into their natural mobility and vitality and athleticism; at the same time help open their minds to more free and easeful ways of moving through life. I teach many levels of yoga and myofascial release here at Rocksteady to assist anyone in moving their body more sustainably
As a former Division 1 swimmer, yoga introduced me to the idea of balancing brain and body. Over the last 10 years, yoga has remained a way for me to put my body back together after long bouts of training for trail & road marathons and long missions in the Wasatch range. I can help you do the same.
I am a Licensed Massage Therapist specializing in joint mobilization, accupressure and myofascial stretch & release through the modality of Thai massage. I attended Myotherapy College of Utah and have traveled to Thailand twice to complete advanced trainings in Thai massage and am certified by the Thai Government. I draw energy from being in the mountains, enjoys traveling the world and experiencing new cultures, and am passionate about helping others discover freedom in there lives through a shift in perspective.
Self Leadership Guide
I have an enthusiasm for perpetual learning along my journey as I strive to reach my greatest potential. I believe in creating foundations for success by empowering individuals to move out of their own way, discover their truth and live the life they desire to be living. My diverse background of over a decade of corporate experience, a formal education in behavioral science combined with embracing change and finding my own truth among my experiences provides me with a unique coaching approach. I guide my clients through the process of purposeful, sustainable transformations. Inspired by connection, nature and creation I travel often, explore new experiences and capture moments. Power comes from wholeness and I have a strong belief in keeping our mind-body-spirit connection tethered through discovery, movement, and expansive experiences that provide an awareness of unlimited potential.
