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 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 :)
