E-RYT, LMT MT0022030
Finding freedom through touch.
I first developed an interest in healing and helping others as a child growing up in West Africa, where my parents do nonprofit and mission work. I have since developed a deep interest in exploring cultures around the world and their ways of healing and artful expressions. I also love dancing and thai yoga massage feels so much like dancing!
I have spent thousands of hours training in and practicing the healing arts, and I strive to incorporate all I've learned (and what I continue to learn!) in every session and class.
Here are some of my certifications and licenses:
- Colorado Massage Therapist (MT.0022030)
- Florida Massage Therapist (MA75549)
- Certified Advanced SomaVeda™ Thai Yoga Practitioner and Instructor
- NCBTMB Accredited Continuing Education Provider
- Natural Therapeutics Specialist
- NM Certified Colon Hydro-therapist
- Yoga Alliance Certified Continuing Education Provider
- 200HR E-RYT Hatha Yoga Teacher
- Certified Emotional Intelligence Coach
- Training in Integrative Somatic Trauma Therapy
My education in practicing healing arts began in 2007, when I received my certification as an Iyengar-influenced Hatha yoga instructor from Yandara Yoga Institute in Todos Santos, Baja, Mexico. I then graduated from the New Mexico School of Natural Therapeutics and practiced massage and bodywork until I became certified as a Thai Yoga Therapist in 2011.
In January 2012, I was graciously given the Master's blessing and lineage holder from Dr. Anthony B. James, in the 37th generation of Masters from the Buddhai Sawan Martial & Healing Arts School in Nongkam, Thailand.
I recently moved to Vail, Colorado from St. Petersburg, Florida where I taught classes and workshops at re-knowned studios like YogaBlu and The Body Electric Yoga Company. I have collaborated with www.yogaformen.com offering live-streaming online yoga classes (for anyone, not just men). I also lead Thai Yoga workshops, certifications, and retreats.
I am currently taking private mobile clients in Vail, Colorado and when I visit St. Pete, FL a couple times a year.
There is so much to explore when it comes to holistic health and compassionate healing! Join me on this journey. It'll be fun :)
