She has completed 5 levels of Thai Yoga Bodywork training through Devanadi school of Yoga and Wellness in Minneapolis, and also holds certificates of training in Prenatal Yoga, Street-Yoga (trauma informed) as well as end of life midwifery.  She considers herself a lifelong student as she actively studies with master teachers and plans to return to Thailand to deepen and expand her learning and offerings from the source of the lineage.

She is dedicated to listening to the needs of her clients, providing the best care possible within her scope of practice, and sharing resources and information to optimize one’s well being and connection to self.

She knew this was the next journey she had to embark on. The love and passion she has for Yoga has completely changed her life. The strength of her mind and body has grown so dramatically over the past 8 years, giving her the ability to be a happier and healthier version of her best self.
