Welcome to my world of holistic health and fitness.
I create customized wellness plans that connect you with your inner strength, so you can move through life with confidence.
For more than 10 years, I’ve been helping people of all ages & fitness levels reframe their relationship with movement. As a Holistic Fitness Trainer, I educate people about the importance of stability as a key component to experiencing exercise in a fun & fulfilling way.
Utilizing 10 years of training in Yoga, Pilates, Strength Training, Massage Therapy & Mindfulness, I help you establish a reliable connection with your body & give you a framework for movement that empowers consistency & adaptability.
Just like you, I want effective & efficient strategies to minimize burn-out & keep me doing what I love to do. But, there is no “one size fits all.” So, I’m always on the hunt for tools that give more natural energy, manage stress & keep movement pain free.
As a fellow go-getter, I crave the fulfillment of being able to do it all.
I’ve been an athlete my whole life. I started playing soccer when I was 5 years old & I played competitively through college.
Years of playing competitive sports taught me so much about hard work & being on a team, but they encouraged an all-or-nothing perspective to exercise that led to several major injuries & chronic physical pain.
As a young adult, I was always busy, I studied theater, visual arts, music & marketing. I acted in plays, sang in choirs & music groups, was on the event planning committee for a club on campus while working several part-time jobs.
After college, I felt drawn to become a “business woman,” so I got a corporate job & served tables in a restaurant for several years. I struggled to settle my hi-energy down behind a desk. And sitting for long hours led to increased anxiety & pain from my sciatica.
I was desperate for a fitness regimen that would serve my business career lifestyle, my mental health & my need to stay active.
Weekly yoga classes were the only thing that gave me relief. The unique physical & mental challenges empowered me to feel strong in my body again.
Soon, I no longer depended on my weekly chiropractic adjustments & my body began to transform from aggressive soccer-beast into graceful-lioness.
In 2012, I quit my corporate job & I graduated from a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training. I was passionate to share this miracle drug of yoga & I started teaching right away.
The focus I experienced in my yoga practice reminded me of the joy I felt playing soccer, but without the anxiety of competition. For the first time, I was learning to trust the intelligence of my body. I found calm & clarity.
The benefits of practicing yoga went far beyond my mat. I became more conscious with my communication. I began to release some of my perfectionist stress. I slept better & I began to liberate my creativity.
Being a Yoga Teacher opened a world of possibilities for me. I quickly leveled-up my training & graduated from a 300-hour Yoga Teacher Training & then a 6-month anatomy & kinesiology intensive course.
Shortly after, I became certified as a Personal Trainer, a Strength & Conditioning Coach, then Zumba, Spin, TRX & Pilates.
Pilates was another mind-blowing experience.
Through my Pilates education I learned more about anatomy, core engagement, & alignment techniques that elevated what I have to offer as a teacher & coach.
In 2019, I co-created a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training with Stella Luna Yoga School. I lead workshops, retreats & train eager yoga teachers about functional anatomy & the importance of safe sequencing.
In 2020, I graduated with a certification in massage therapy from Panacea Holistic Bodywork College. This more hands-on approach to wellness provided a deeper perspective on how I can help others feel better in their bodies.
Over the past 10 years, I’ve taught in sports training facilities, yoga & pilates studios, fitness gyms, & worked privately with clients throughout southern California & now Las Vegas. I spent several summers traveling with Nike’s Elite Youth Basketball League as the recovery trainer, representing CytoSport’s Muscle Milk.
And I now run my own online business.
All my training allows me to customize my coaching plans to fit the unique needs of each client.
My goal is to inspire you to befriend movement & enjoy your body as you move through life.
