My goal is to help people regain mastery over their lives by promoting a better understanding of how the mind and body are connected and interact with one another. Through a process of guiding and watching both the breath and the mind, we can naturally restore harmony and balance to our bodies. These practices and tools, which access the internal wisdom of our bodies, help us to achieve a calmer mind, more resiliency to stress, better focus and concentration, better sleep, more self-confidence, improved stamina, and more.
Over the past thirty plus years, I have been exploring the connections between mind and body, especially as viewed through the lens of empirical and pragmatic scientific principles. I have discovered that a central player in our overall health and wellbeing is breath. Many believe that our connection to the breath provides the crucial doorway to our body’s innate internal intelligence. This led me to deepen my understanding of breathing and breathwork by completing the Advanced Instructor Certification in the Oxygen Advantage program. I have discovered how we can combine breathing with other methods to recondition our minds and to reinterpret our experiences in a way that allows us to reconcile the past and embrace the present with confidence and a sense of empowerment.
Please feel free to reach out to me if you would like to learn more. We can schedule a free, initial consultation. I offer in-person and online one-on-one coaching and group workshops.
