Public Profile

Passionate about enriching the lives of our U.S. Navy, Marine, Army, Air Force, Coast Guard and Merchant Marine service men and women, I teach Trauma Sensitive Accessible Yoga and iRest Meditation through Warriors at Ease a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that serves as a community resource to bring yoga and meditation to military communities around the world.
Both my yoga and meditation training is grounded in evidence-based practices, trauma sensitive principles and military culture.

I offer iRest Meditation, Mindful Resilience Accessible Yoga and Chair Yoga practices that encourage health, resiliency and connection to the Veterans, Family Members, Support Teams, Friends and Fans in the following Women's and Men's Veteran Communities: Combat Trauma / PTSD / MST / Moral Injury and Invisible Wounds.

I have a sweet spot for People with Aging Bodies who don't think yoga and meditation is for them - because Yoga and Meditation is for Every Body!

These practices help U.S. to Breath Easy, Focus Clearly, Move Freely, Rest Deeply, and Be Grateful through:
Breathing ~ Meditation ~ Mindful Movement ~ iRest Meditation / Yoga Nidra ~ and ~ Gratitude!
