*500 hr RYT – Yoga Therapist
* Reiki Master/Teacher
*Urban Zen Integrative Therapist
I had been practicing yoga for years, but truly fell in love with it during a college class in 1986. In 2005, I suffered from chronic back pain resulting from 4 herniated discs and spent a year in different therapies, endured 3 epidurals in my spine and lost of use of my arms at times. My doctors were recommending surgery but I did not want to go under the knife. My intuition kicked in, reminding me that the body has the ability to heal itself…. all it took was Yoga therapy, meditation, and visualization. I was pain free within a few months and back to my regular activities – not to say that I do not have flare ups now and then, but I am more aware of when they are starting and how to keep them at bay.
That is when I realized I wanted to get out of the corporate world and help others in the Dayton/Cincinnati area take charge of their own healing. After much research into finding a medical based training program, I received my 200 hr training/certification through YogaMedics which offers therapeutic training designed by physicians, psychologists, physical therapists and yoga instructors.
I am also a certified 500 hr Urban Zen Integrative Therapist, using yoga therapy, reiki, essential oil therapy, and breath awareness in clinical settings and private sessions in my studio. I recently finished my Reiki Master/Teacher certification and I am currently working on a Craniosacral certification.
My goal is to teach others how to rid their lives of stress, pain & hopelessness, strengthen their bodies and balance their central nervous systems resulting in a better quality of life.
