Yin yoga is my passion. The synthesis of asana and meridian theory opened many possibilities for me in my work as a massage and yoga therapist. In my study of Shiatsu I was introduced to this concept through the Makko Ho series, which sequences stretches in their elemental order. When I discovered the work of Paul Grilley I realized the application of my knowledge of yoga to address physiological, emotional and kinesthetic issues.
My approach to Yin yoga incorporates my experience working with physical therapists, chiropractors and acupuncturists. I’ve enjoyed working with dancers through volunteering at the Oregon Ballet Theater, as well as assisting with the rehab/prehab programs of NHL, NFL and NBA players. Working with people who are motivated to seek active change in their bodies and lives is a process that inspires me to pour my heart into my work.
