GREATER WELL-BEING BEGINS HERE
Achieve Optimum Function
Originally developed by Dr. Ida P. Rolf in the 1950’s, Rolfing is an in-depth, hands-on form of bodywork that reorganizes the body’s connective tissue to help relieve people of pain. A session involves a Rolfer™ looking at the client, evaluating how they stand and move, and then proceeding with the actual session.
Physical and Mental Discipline
I am an E-RYT 500 teacher who has collaborated in over 40+ yoga teacher trainings, immersions, retreats, and workshops. I have been teaching since 2001 and practicing on and off, ever since my grandmother taught me yoga as a little girl. I was first certified in ISHTA yoga, then in Anusara Yoga, a style I taught for over 10 years until my resignation in 2012. I now teach mindful, anatomy-conscious Hatha yoga.
Structural Integration Training
I have been blessed to have taught anatomy all around different yoga studios in Los Angeles, as well as nationally. The trainings and workshops I’ve taught and have collaborated include but are not limited to: InYoga in Studio City, Yoga Blend in Burbank, Black Dog Yoga in Sherman Oaks, Spectra Yoga in Costa Mesa, Mission City in Pasadena, The Raven in Silver Lake, Willow Street Yoga in Baltimore, Elements Yoga in Connecticut, as well as numerous “Spiritual Anatomy” workshops taught in my home in Lake Hollywood.
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) –pioneered by osteopathic physician John E. Upldedger– is a gentle, hands-on treatment for evaluating and enhancing the functioning of the CranioSacral System. The CranioSacral System is a body system comprised of membranes and cerebrospinal fluid, which surround, protect, and nourish the brain and spinal cord. By normalizing the environment around the brain and spinal cord, and enhancing the body’s ability to self-correct, CST is able to alleviate pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance.
In simpler terms, the brain and spinal cord are protected not only by our bones (skull and spinal column) but also encased in liquid called the cerebrospinal fluid. This fluid has its own pulsation, different from breath or heartbeat. Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams – about the weight of a nickel – the CST practitioner aligns with the subtle rhythms of the cerebrospinal fluid, releasing restrictions in the soft tissues surrounding it, in order to improve its function. CST is beneficial for individuals of all ages and is increasingly used as a preventive health measure. CST complements the body’s natural healing processes, and helps bolster resistance to disease and other associated medical problems.
