I believe music is an embodied practice, after all it is our bodies that play the instruments, and when we sing our body literally is our instrument. I incorporate tools from yoga and the Alexander Technique as well as conscious breathing into music lessons. My goal as a teacher is to provide you with the tools and skills to allow you to be creatively free and empowered to express yourself through music. Available for all ages.
Private herbal consultations are available in person or over the phone. An initial herbal consultation lasts approximately 3 hours. During this time I aim to get a clear picture of you, and from there I will make you a personal herbal formula, offer lifestyle suggestions, and somatic practices to incorporate into daily life. Energetic herbalism emphasizes the emotional, spiritual, and physical aspects of being.
Body Dialogue is a unique form of somatic therapy and education that I have learned from my teacher of many years Janice Rous. Body Dialogue synthesizes the tools of the Alexander Technique, Breathing Coordination, vocal toning, and mindfulness practices. A session is intended to drop you into your breath and your body, in order to unwind habitual patterns of tension and constriction and experience greater freedom and ease.
Reiki is a gentle yet powerful healing modality combining both hands-on and hands-off the body energy work. During a reiki session, the practitioner channels universal life force energy through herself as a channel to the client. Reiki energy has its own intelligence and will know where to go. The job of the practitioner is to stay clear and get out of the way. People often describe receiving reiki as feeling relaxing or warm. Reiki energy can help to align your body, mind, spirit, and emotions to a state of wholeness and health. A typical reiki session lasts approximately 1 hour.
