About Me

My Story

I offer yoga and energy work (reiki and Integrated Energy Therapy) because I believe in the healing power of movement, touch, presence, and attention. I believe that deep relief can be found in breathing and feeling, especially when we allow ourselves to breathe and feel together.

I came to this work after years and years of living with depression and anxiety. My self-worth was rooted in achievement and people-pleasing, but no matter how much I achieved or how many people I pleased, I just ended up feeling exhausted and empty. I was an academic, and I constantly followed my head instead of my heart. I was completely disconnected from my own body, my emotions, and my intuition. And then a painful breakup pushed me over the edge, ripping open old wounds and flooding me with intense rage, jealousy, bitterness, and insecurity. But in all of that darkness, I discovered a tiny spark of courage: I was finally ready to change. I was ready to dig deep, to descend into the underworld like Inanna, shed my seven layers and come back reborn. 

I am still on that journey, and while I believe that we have our own path, I have learned that we need not always be alone in our travels. I like to think of a yoga class or reiki/IET session as a waystation – a place of shelter or rest for a weary pilgrim, a time to pause, reflect, refuel, and allow yourself to be cared for. My intention as a teacher and energy work practitioner is to create a space where your body can relax and feel safe, to help you unload some of the heavy baggage you no longer need to carry, and to bolster your courage for the next step on your path, wherever it may lead.

Offerings

Private yoga and reiki sessions in Rockwall, TX and surrounding areas. Sessions are offered at your home or office, or can be scheduled at Clairevista Holistic Health and Fitness in West Dallas, TX, Blue Sky Yoga in Allen, TX, or Divinity Yoga in Forney, TX.

Private Yoga

60 min or 75 min class

Private yoga classes are a wonderful way to deepen your yoga practice.  Unlike a group class, my private classes are customized for your body, experience level, and emotional needs. You have my full attention and will receive guidance on alignment, breath, use of props, and energetic flow. I have experience in vinyasa, yin, restorative, and kundalini yoga as well as qi gong, and I draw movements and exercises from all of these styles to intentionally design a class that will support you in building strength, flexibility, balance, and most importantly, inner peace.

Energy Work

75 min session

In my energy work sessions, I incorporate the modalities of both reiki and Integrated Energy Therapy (IET). Reiki, which means “life energy,” is a gentle energy healing technique developed in Japan in the 1920s. IET, developed by Stevan Thayer in 1994, is similar to reiki but places a greater emphasis on releasing limiting beliefs (or, as Stevan says, getting the “issues out of your tissues”). My sessions are intuitively guided, so each session is unique, depending on your energetic needs in that particular moment in time and space. But no matter what happens in your session, your soul will thank you for taking the time to be still and listen to what it has to say.

Reiki Infused Restorative Yoga

75 min session

The best of both worlds! Using comfortable, supportive props, I will guide you through a series of gentle, restorative postures, which are held for 5-10 minutes. As your body finds deep relaxation in stillness, I’ll offer reiki. I find that restorative yoga postures open up the body, lowering our defenses so that we are more willing and ready to receive divine love. Past clients report that these sessions are profoundly healing, allowing their bodies to find true rest.

What You Will Need

For yoga classes, you will need a yoga mat and a quiet, flat space to practice. I also suggest having the following props available: 1-2 yoga blocks or block substitutes (a stack of books can work in a pinch), 1-2 sturdy blankets, a bolster or pillow, and a strap or belt. For reiki sessions, you will need a quiet space where we will not be interrupted (guest bedrooms are ideal if you have one!). We will either need enough space for my massage table, or a bed or soft spot on a carpeted floor where you can comfortably relax. Both yoga and reiki sessions can be conducted outside, weather permitting.

Cancellation Policy

Please notify me at least 24 hours in advance if you need to cancel our session.
