At 37, I stepped away from a 15-year corporate advertising career, armed only with a fresh yoga certification, a passion for teaching, and an unshakeable feeling that I needed a change. This decision came on the heels of personal challenges, including two divorces within a decade. These experiences, coupled with my yoga training, began reshaping my understanding of self.
During my corporate days, I was the picture of physical activity: running, biking, even leading outdoor bootcamps. Yet, behind the energy was a woman struggling with anxiety, relying on medication and, many times, a bottle of wine to cope. Years of prioritizing work over true wellness caught up with me, manifesting as fatigue, hormonal imbalances, and more.
I’ve discovered, both in myself and in my clients, that a Midlife Awakening is an ongoing journey. It’s about shedding past identities to bloom anew. As we settle into these new selves, over months or years, we learn and grow and then our inner voices nudge us toward further growth. I personally continue to awaken through life changes: shifting body + energy levels, menopause, doubting myself and finding my way back again. Yet, with each layer I peel back, I find deeper acceptance of life’s ever-changing nature.
My life’s tapestry, interwoven with personal challenges and entrepreneurial ventures, has enriched my practice. Clients value my genuine, candid approach, infused with the clarity and wisdom earned through lived experiences.
Since 2010, I’ve been a compass for many on their transformative paths. Together, we rediscover inner guidance, nurture healthy habits, address limiting beliefs, and embrace every facet of the self. I’m a staunch believer that to live expansively, we must first journey inward, often benefiting from an external perspective to illuminate the familiar.
My expertise bridges meditation, interpersonal psychology, the enneagram, health coaching, pranic healing, and of course, yoga. With a 500-hour certification from Yoga Alliance and over 14,000 teaching hours, I’ve co-led multiple Teacher Training programs. My teaching palette is diverse, blending traditional techniques with refreshing practices like shaking, tapping, and even laughter.
