Create more freedom in your life.

Are you feeling stuck? 

Whether sitting on a dock watching the sun, clouds and water pass by or engaging in all kinds of adventures, we all hope to participate fully in life. Does this feel out of reach?  

What is it you want to be able to do? Do you suffer from pain and perhaps the sleepless nights, anxiety or depression that often accompanies chronic or persistent pain?

I work to support you and provide information, tools, and skills that get you on the way to living your life, the way you envision it. Together, we formulate a step-by-step plan forward.  You really can start from anywhere. Most important is you’ll learn how to sustain this for yourself, over the long-term.

Current pain science indicates some of the best results in helping people with persistent pain incorporates pain neuroscience education (PNE) along with movement and relaxation techniques. Yoga is well suited to the latter and the education, well… your pain might not be quite what you thought it was. There is good news according to current evidence.

Information, skills and tools off the mat… and into your life.

First, pay attention. Awareness is the way through.
