Since I was little I've been able to press on a tight or injured area of the body and release the spot. Removing tension, stiffness, old stuff, stored in muscles. To complement this intuitive knowledge I’ve worked alongside many healers, and studied anatomy and physiology. It’s a wonderful gift to help people heal. The healing I do is by pressing into muscles with my hands, fingers, and elbows. No point or area is pressed on for longer than a couple of seconds. I make sure you're breathing calmly and not tensing. The way to release a muscle is to work with it, not against it. The pressure I apply is never too hard, which can cause damage. I prefer to circle back to tough spots so the process isn't adversarial to your body. You definitely know I'm there but aren't wishing I'd leave. Getting out of pain shouldn't be miserable or painful. Some clients work weekly and some schedule tune-ups once a month. I work with clients on a yoga mat, grounded. When appropriate I'll position you in restorative yoga poses on bolsters and blankets. Using restorative yoga subtly adds gentle twists, backbends and side openers, and makes the session cozy. My time is focused on the bodywork: no oils, music or tchotchkes. Nothing to distract from the work, or, as we say in yoga, add another layer of maya. Clients wear comfortable clothing and pick a quiet and private space to work. Sessions last one hour. Professionally, for over twenty years, I've helped people heal from frozen shoulders, restricted necks, carpel tunnel syndrome, bulging and herniated disks, rolled ankles, tennis elbow (or ielbow), tight lower backs, overworked muscles, fertility challenges, and protected chakras. If an area of your body no longer works the way it should, I can help. Please use the contact form to email for a session
Private Yoga Sessions
For over twenty years I've taught private yoga clients from those just starting their yogic journey, injured students, or seasoned practitioners. Every session is approached to meet the needs of the moment from an active practice to gentle to restorative. My focus is on helping students to enjoy their practice, foster body-awareness and heal. Mostly I teach people how to be nice to themselves through yoga. The yoga is for you. Private yoga sessions last one hour at your home or office.

Restorative Yoga Workshop
Hips & Hamstrings
“How can I use yoga to for my tight hips & hamstrings?"
You stretch and you stretch and you stretch and your hips and hamstrings still feel tight? It's not fair and it's frustrating. The reality is it's hard to counteract all the sitting we do, which tightens hamstrings, and the repetitive movement from walking and running that causes hips to feel tight. Let’s try approaching these areas with passive stretching. Using Restorative Yoga, practiced lying on the mat in long-held poses using blocks, bolster, and blankets, we will foster a place between over- and under-stretching, where you can let go of the pose, kind of get out of the way, and allow these areas to release on their own. A relaxing and loving approach to tightness.
