1.) Tell me about your personal journey with yoga. Why is it important to you?
I had always been a runner and into extreme sports, but all of this changed when I landed on ice off of snowboarding jump in 2004. Suddenly my athletic days ended and it hurt my body to even walk. I did a couple years of physical therapy and chiropractic work but was not able to do what I used to do for physical activity. I started going to yoga with the idea of strengthening my core, which it completely did moreso than running or any other sports ever could. I not only gained my core strength back but found I loved the practice on my entire body and mind.
2.) Tell us about your work with Holistic Psychology and Essential Oils. How has this deepened your practice or enriched your life?
As a psychotherapist, I worked many years in a square office with no windows, limited pay, and limited freedom to really work with the mind at the whole body perspective. I started integrating essential oils into my career and noticed wonderful changes from just mood and emotions and really long term changes when we implemented the essential oils into the mind-intestine connection wellness perspective. Leading my career down this path has given me so much more meaning and freedom to work with others at the whole body perspective and achieve true wellness.
3.) What makes your classes unique?
I now teach and lead others how to integrate essential oils into their health & wellness careers so they can apply the whole body perspective into their practices and have the opportunity to provide more freedom in their own career. We teach weekly classes on different subjects pertaining to holistic wellness with essential oils, from basics to the brain.
4.) How does music benefit your guidance in a yoga class?
N/A – I don’t teach yoga, but I do help yogis by teaching them about oils!
