My personal yoga practice was my gateway into the world of bodywork. By way of listening attentively to my breath and working with form through asana practice I was cued into experiencing subtleties about myself that I had never been aware of. My postural, emotional, and mental patterns were exposed and I saw a glimpse of how working with these patterns via the breath could allow me to work towards a more calm and clear state of being. These glimpses intrigued me to dive deeper into the unseen yet felt conditioning that often unconsciously governs our posture, emotions, minds, and breath. Our lives.
In 2007 I began studying at Earthwalk School of Energy in Bellvue, WA and I graduated from their 560 hour Advanced Vibrational Medicine program in June 2009. This was an extensive training on the subtle energy system of the body and various modalities of working with it. Throughout this time period my Ashtanga yoga practice gave me a great template to observe the subtle and gross representations of what I had been studying on a personal level.
