Caregiver touched by breast cancer spreading the magic of yoga + self-care

Hi! I’m a caregiver touched by breast cancer offering yoga, reiki, aromatherapy and bodywork experiences online and from my homestead in Southern Vermont. I know from experience how hard it is for those who tend to others~~as part of their careers or as personal support for friends or family members~~to find the same attention for themselves. I’m here to provide you with a variety of accessible self-care tools to give your body and soul the support they need so you can continue doing the things that bring you joy in life.

I was crushed when I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2002. I had always been active and healthy, so I couldn’t imagine what I had done wrong. That news came to me just three months after my husband’s life-changing serious burn injury, making for quite a second year of marriage. I started practicing yoga on a regular basis in 2009. I enjoyed not just the physical part of the practice, but the break it gave my mind and the boost it brought to my self-confidence. The only real issue was that my breast form kept slipping out of my top! But I felt so strong, free and even beautiful in class that one day I finally tossed it to the side of my mat. When no one seemed to notice or care, I realized that a yoga studio was a sacred space, indeed.

As difficult as my own health struggles were, it wasn’t until my husband faced some sudden, severe~~and frightening~~heart issues that my practice was elevated to another level. That was when I found true comfort on my mat, and a peace that seemed unattainable anywhere else.

I was inspired to share the fruits of this practice with others in 2014, so I that’s when I began my 200-hour teacher training. I’ve done additional study in Teaching to Beginners, Prenatal Yoga and Fluid Yoga assisting; I’m Yoga 4 Cancer and yin yoga certified; and I obtained my 300-hour yoga certification in 2019. I also have certifications in both Level II Reiki and Level II Thai yoga bodywork, and I bring my years of experience in aromatherapy into my classes. I truly delight in making sessions accessible to everyone, and I love the mindfulness yoga brings to time spent off the mat. Practice time reminds us to be present, and we can’t be any more ourselves as when we’re moving organically and breathing.
