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.

Private yoga and reiki sessions in Fort Collins, CO and surrounding areas. Sessions are offered at your home or office. In-office energy work appointments are also available upon request.

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 kundalini, vinyasa, slow flow, yin, and restorative yoga as well as qi gong and dance, 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

80 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.

Assisted Stretching

60 min session

I’ll guide your body into stretches, using the proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) technique to help your body feel comfortable going deeper at its own pace. We’ll use your breathe to calm your body and help you feel more relaxed even in the discomfort of a stretch.


Duration depends on event

As an ordained interfaith minister, I am empowered to perform weddings, baptisms, funeral services, and other ceremonies honoring major life transitions. I can create custom rituals that align with your spiritual beliefs. Please contact me and we can discuss how I can best serve at your event or ceremony.

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.
If you need to cancel the day of our appointment, I may need to charge a cancellation fee.

Upcoming Events




Restore and Gong Bath

Open level class with about 45 minutes of gentle movements and restorative poses and 30 minutes of gong vibration. Every Wednesday night, 7:30pm-8:30pm at Be Free Healing in Fort Collins, CO. Sliding scale pricing is available.




Naked Ecstatic Dance for Women

When women gather with bared bodies and open hearts, ancient primal energies are awakened from deep within our bones. If your inner witch is longing for wildness, join us for a night of unclothed, uninhibited expression. My co-hostess KC Trujillo and I will hold safe space for free movement and will provide a sultry, fiery, and fun playlist to stoke your goddess energy. We’ll begin with optional cacao and a clothed check-in circle, and then as the music starts we’ll invite the layers to come off. We’ll dance and sing together, and after a closing circle we’ll nourish our bodies with light refreshments. Bring anything you’d like to dance with (for example, wraps/scarves, flowers, feathers, or reasonably sized flow toys) and a blanket or robe for coziness during closing circle. Open to all who identify as women. $25. 7:00pm-9:00pm at Be Free Healing in Fort Collins, CO.




Sharing our Shadow Sides: A Story Circle

Our shadows are made up of all of the parts of ourselves that we have deemed unacceptable or unlovable – like our shame, guilt, jealousy, insecurity, cruelty, and humiliation. Many of us hide these dark parts of ourselves from others or even repress them from our own consciousness. Sharing our shadow sides through storytelling can help us integrate and find love and compassion for our whole selves. Each participant will receive a themed prompt inviting them to tell a story about a shadowy time in their life. When we gather in circle, we’ll take turns giving and receiving stories. As a group, we’ll honor and acknowledge the darkness that is shared with us. Participants will be asked to honor confidentiality and to witness each other’s stories without judgment. No need to bring anything other than your story (and your shadow). $25. 6:30pm-8:30pm at Be Free Healing in Fort Collins, CO.




Psychic Development Game Night

2 hour workshop, open to all. All humans have intuition, the ability to tap into information and knowledge directly without conscious, rational deliberation. For many of us, though, our intuition has lost its sharpness due to the pressures of society and adulthood. One way to bring it back to life is through fun, imaginative play! In this workshop, we’ll play non-competitive games designed to reconnect you with your sixth sense. $20. 6:30pm-8:30pm at Be Free Healing in Fort Collins, CO.




Cuddle Circle for Women

These are difficult times, so let’s come together as sisters and care for each other as women have done for generations. This event will be mostly unstructured time that we can use to offer each other consent-driven physical touch, emotional support, and the simple comfort of togetherness. Think couch snuggles, massage trains, hair braiding, story sharing, reading tarot/oracle cards for each other – like a sleepover but you get to sleep in your own bed! Wear your most comfortable clothes (pajamas and slippers are very welcome!). Option to bring anything that feels cozy to you: a blanket, stuffed animal, your favorite mug, tarot/oracle cards, your latest knitting/crocheting project, coloring books, puzzles, etc. All who identify as women are welcome. $25. 6:30pm-8:30pm at Be Free Healing in Fort Collins, CO.
