I grew up in a small coastal town in Southern Maine, where playing outdoors and yes, eating lobstah, was the norm. Sports were woven into my childhood like yarn and popsicle sticks. So as an athlete and adventurer at heart, I understand the body's need to recover. Playing team sports and skiing my whole life, I experienced what a toll that can take if you don't properly stretch, strengthen and relax both your body and your mind. Now as an adult gaining fulfillment through mountain biking, surfing and other outdoor adventures, I have discovered solice and balance through the practice of yoga.
I appreciate how yoga has altered the lens I view my life through. I'd say it's a softer, but more crisp lens...definitely polarized. I take comfort in the knowing that yoga is a lifelong practice. Yoga has taught me to self-study, to slow down, and it has ingrained in me a yearning to learn. As a result I am more open to sharing my experiences, I feel more grounded and able to help others, and I am connected to my body in new ways than before. Constantly gaining new insight on my own path of yoga, I feel yoga provides so much opportunity for anyone no matter where you meet yoga or where yoga meets you.
As a massage therapist, I have experience working with different bodies and various ailments that plague our daily lives. I believe whole-heartedly in the philosophy that if you gain the proper tools to care for your body and your mind, you can alleviate pain and stress, as well as emotional and physical blocks.
