Certified iRest Teacher
San Francisco Bay Area

When I came to this practice in 2007, I had spent my entire adult life battling chronic depression and a debilitating anxiety disorder. After years of struggle, I found in Richard Miller’s teachings, a way to stop, turn around, and face life in a way I had never done before. This simple act of welcoming was the beginning of a radical transformation that fundamentally changed my life.

Now, as a Certified iRest Teacher, I’m so grateful to be able to share what I’ve learned with others. I have taught iRest Yoga Nidra to populations including veterans and the homeless and I work with individuals suffering from anxiety & depression and substance abuse issues.

I have found that we all have a capacity to meet life as it is and in every moment to recognize our inherent freedom. iRest offers us a direct pointer to that freedom as well as a path.
