YOGA + MINDFULNESS
"I believe we are capable of elevated wellbeing using integrated strategies informed by neurobiology, psychological science and yoga and mindfulness practices. Awareness and education are powerful tools for revealing our capacity to live well in both body and mind. From there we can not only heal, but transcend our challenges and pursue growth, tapping into what it fully means to be well."
