With 10+ years of experience as a certified holistic health coach, yoga + meditation teacher, and birth doula, I have been supporting women around the world in embodying their true power by connecting with their innate feminine nature.
I have done this through coaching women privately, facilitating multiple group online programs, as well as hosting retreats, workshops and women's circles globally.
I grew up with two yogi parents, so personal growth and transformation have been an integral part of my life since I was young. I spent a good part of my childhood in ashrams with my family meditating, doing yoga, chanting and absorbing ancient wisdom from their teachers from India. I learned at a very early age the power of food, meditation and mindfulness as a way to heal and empower the human spirit. I also learned that we are the source of our own love, power and wisdom. I majored in world religion and anthropology in college, which led me to deepen my study of the esoteric arts, ancient healing traditions and women's spirituality.
My greatest teacher has been myself, and the most profound classroom has been my own life.
I know what feels like to be burnt-out, depleted, and at an all time low. I spent my early twenties living in New York and working at a fast-paced start up. I was burning the candle at both ends by overworking and overusing alcohol to manage stress. My life was out of balance, I felt disconnected to my body and was entangled in unhealthy relationships. All of that came grinding to a halt when I woke up in the ER struggling to breathe. It was my body throwing it’s red flag telling me I needed to find another way.
I left the ER, quit my job, and set off on a journey to learn how to heal my body, listen to my heart, respect myself and nourish my soul. I’ve spent the last ten years learning how to reawaken the feminine principle within myself and help other women do the same.
// My Trainings & Certifications
The Institute for Integrative Nutrition // Holistic Health Coaching
I was raised eating healthy foods on a macrobiotic diet and quickly learned the powerful healing qualities of food – I also learned that eating healthy food isn't enough to be a whole, healthy person. I learned it's vital to also consider our relationships, career, spirituality and creativity and how they factor into our overall wellbeing. With a passion in wellness, I studied at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition to have the tools to guide myself and others towards health and happiness.
Art of Living Foundation // Vedic Wisdom, Mindfulness & Mediation
When I was in my early 20s I longed for a daily meditation practice but nothing I tried stuck, until Art of Living came into my life. I was living in New York and a friend suggested I go to a course. I learned a very powerful breathing technique called Sudarshan Kriya that changed my life. For the past 8 years I've studied closely with the founder of the organization Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, and practiced and taught these techniques in Philly, NY and California. I continue to deepen in my study of this Vedic linage by going into silence for 5 days twice a year, taking courses, practicing the techniques daily and reading the ancient texts. I'm so deeply grateful for these gifts.
Birth Arts International & Mama Tree // Birth Doula & PreNatal Yoga Teacher
My mother gave birth to me at home with the assistance of her doula and midwife. It was a beautiful experience for both and was the seed for a deep and sacred bond between them which continues to grow even more beautiful over the years. This inspired me to become a birth doula through Birth Arts International. I also completed my 45-hour prenatal yoga teacher training with Mama Tree with Jane Austin in San Francisco.
Nosara Yoga Institute // Yoga & Yoga Dance Teacher
I received my 200-Hour interdisciplinary yoga teacher training and 100-hour Let Your Yoga Dance teacher training certification through the Nosara Yoga Institute in Costa Rica in 2012. I am incredible grateful to my teachers Don and Amba who provided a nurturing environment for me to blossom and grow in new ways through their emphasis on experiential learning and encouragement to look to my own inner wisdom. Their approach to yoga is one of self-inquiry and discovery, and I find myself continuously growing through this daily practice.
