ISHTA means "Individual"; I hone your practice to your individual needs, per day, per season, whether you're a group class or a private or semi-private session. ISHTA Yoga is also my Yoga lineage

Reiki is a powerful balancing energy through hand transmission. Reiki 1 uses live hand placements for total well-being, and balancing specific areas. Reiki 2 is distant/remote treatment, and also mental treatments to calm the mind and encourage a mindset for wholeness and thriving.

Thai Yoga, or "nuad boran" is a healing dance between giver and receiver, done on a floor mat, with the receiver being fully relaxed, and the giver flowing through poses themselves while facilitating healthful postures for the receiver, and offering bodywork through manual pressure along energy lines, called "sen" lines. Certified 2009 and 2010 Levels 1&2, Jenn Yarro, Triple Gem School of ThaiMassage.
Props support the body fully in Restorative Yoga, so the mind and body can completely relax into the benefits of the pose. All five senses are softened; dim, quiet, soft, and very often aromatherapy, music, guided meditations augment the experience.
I lead Restorative Teacher Trainings since 2009. Of my 100-hour, 4-weekend modules in 2020, Level 1 is complete; L2-L4 new dates as we go.
