I have had a lifelong interest in the human mind and body, beginning with ten years of intensive study of ballet and modern dance at Boston Ballet School and Boston Conservatory. After leaving dance, I decided to explore my interest in the visual arts, and received my Bachelors in Interior Design from Boston Architectural Center. I loved interior design, but after working in the field for six years I felt that the physical aspect of my life was missing. Having practiced yoga for several years on my own, I was drawn to a career with lululemon athletica, a company which designs and sells yoga-inspired athletic wear. Working in an environment with such positive, like-minded people inspired me to obtain my yoga instructor certification through the National Exercise & Sports Trainers Association, as well as attend the Svaroopa Yoga Foundations course in 2008. In that same year I began my Somatics studies at the Somatic Systems Institute in Northampton, MA. I graduated as a Clinical Somatic Educator in January 2010. My Somatics studies have truly changed the way I view physical and mental health and aging. I have learned that everyone's health is in their own hands, and practicing Somatics is the most effective way to release habitual muscle tension and prevent many common musculoskeletal conditions associated with aging. Somatics has allowed me to recover from injuries, pain and overall tightness, and I am now able to run and practice yoga pain-free. I have experienced incredible changes in myself since beginning my Somatics practice, and I love helping others through their journey toward lasting health.
