“I am a Holistic Practitioner with a deep passion holistic healing and wellness. It is my main goal and purpose to feel as good in my body as possible, and help others do the same .
I am a 400hr Certified Yoga Teacher with Happy Jack yoga since 2019. I am also Level 2 Certified with Reiki, starting from 2018. I received my Holistic Nutrition Certification at The Holistic School of Natural Nutrition in 2017- and practiced for one year. Since then have been practicing and learning through my own personal journey. I also received a Level 1 Ayurveda Certification in India March 2019, and have found it mixes perfectly with nutrition.
I believe that feeling good in and creating a safe relationship with your body is the key to living a happy, healthy, and free life . My experience with reiki and sound healing has drastically shifted my life in the most positive ways- and left me inspired to provide the same experience for others- and help you feel good in your body too.
