I bring a wealth of knowledge, wisdom and experience to my private Nervous System RESET sessions and my Reiki and Yoga Training. I have over 22 years of experience in the Health and Wellness field. Over these 2 decades of teaching, supporting private clients, and group facilitation, I have become a skilled and compassionate guide.
As a Nervous System RESET Practitioner, a seasoned Yoga Teacher and an experienced Yoga Teacher Trainer, my desire is to support you and your evolution. Not only your spiritual development but also to teach you how to regulate your nervous system, build capacity and resilience within it so you can manage life’s ups and downs with grace and ease.
As I evolve so do my offerings. As I awakened to my own trauma after the death of my mother in 2020, I embarked on another healing journey to understand my past and present state of being. I have experienced several car accidents and medical procedures that I later realized were traumatic events that left me in a state of fight/flight, which is a nervous system stress response. Ready to learn how to transform this, I discovered Nervous System RESET and signed up for the 2 year training program after experiencing how effective this work was for me. The NSR program was life changing for me and now I am honoured to offer this work to you.
I work with clients one-on-one and in small groups. During our Nervous System RESET sessions, I will teach you how to settle and calm your nervous system using body-based tools that, overtime, will rewire your brain and repattern your nervous system. This mindful, somatic work will build a healthy nervous system that ebbs and flows with life’s ups and downs rather than getting stuck in the stress responses of fight, flight, freeze or fawning. Slowly and gently this work, will build capacity and resilience in your nervous system and a larger window of tolerance to manage the stressors of life. This will transform how you choose to live in the world and with commitment to the process, will help you live a more playful, joyful and pleasurable life.
