Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction LIVE ONLINE
During this time of uncertainty and stress, invest in your own health and well-being in a deep way. The eight-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Course developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn will take you into the deep journey of BEING. In this eight-week course, you will learn and experience a variety of mindfulness practices that can help you settle into the sensations of your body, be with your thoughts and emotions through the practice of awareness, and respond more wisely to the stressors in your life. Sharing these experiences through group dialogue will offer you the possibility of connecting with others in a deeply personal way.
If you long to live more fully, with an increased sense of peace, clarity and stability, and with more compassion for yourself and others, now may be the perfect time to give yourself this gift.

Belief and Mission
I believe that at our core we are beautiful and whole, and as we come home to ourselves through awareness, we discover our inherent stability and strength and start to feel a sense of ourselves as centered, free, and radiant.
Join me in this journey of waking up to the truth of who you are!
“Yoga increases body awareness, relieves stress, reduces muscle tension, strain, and inflammation, sharpens attention and concentration, and calms and centers the nervous system.”
“Give yourself permission to allow this moment to be exactly as it is, and allow yourself to be exactly as you are.”
My mind, body and spirit journey began when, as a nationally ranked gymnast, I was first introduced to and utilized the mindfulness technique of visualization to enhance performance. I learned that, along with a disciplined work ethic, visualizing my best performance moved me towards manifestation.
As the child of a recovering alcoholic, I learned about the grip of addiction and the healing power of twelve step programs and supportive communities. During my college years, as I moved away from my family of origin and pursued a degree in dance, I began to notice obstacles, patterns and habits that were keeping me from living a happy, connected, radiant life. Through the practice of mindfulness meditation and dance performance, some of these blocks started to loosen their grip on my life.
After earning an MA in school counseling and the credential of National Certified Counselor, I worked for eight years as a licensed, national board certified school counselor. During that time I witnessed the debilitating effects of stress, trauma and other mental health challenges on the mind, body and spirit. As a result, I became increasingly committed to the healing power of mind/body practices, such as yoga, movement, and mindfulness-based stress reduction.
I am a 200 hour Registered Yoga Teacher through Yoga Alliance and am certified as a Mindfulness Meditation Teacher through Yoga International.
I am currently qualified to teach the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course as a phase 2 teacher in the MBSR teacher training program through Mindfulness Northwest under the direction of Tim Burnett.
