In pursuit of my own lifestyle balance and healing, I have trained in many healing arts. In 1980 I began my studies with Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, the largest holistic learning center on the east coast.
My training in Kripalu Yoga and Kripalu Therapeutic Massage provided me with a technical and experiential understanding of the body, which informs every aspect my being and my work. I have continued a part time massage practice because a healing session offers sacred nourishment for receiver and giver alike.
My bodywork training and certifications are listed below.
