Spiritual Healing Arts
Living in tune with nature is my passion. I have been in health and wellness all of my life, beginning as a fitness instructor in 1989. I taught group classes at health clubs and “sit and be fit” classes in nursing homes and everything in between. It has always been important to me to help foster optimal health at every stage of life.
In 1996, it became clear that I would like to master as many skill sets as possible so that I could open a day spa. First I studied esthetic skin care and then massage therapy. I began practicing yoga. This same year I was blessed with the first of my four daughters, so the day spa took a back seat. I enjoyed a freelance healing massage practice for many years. I continually study homeopathy, naturopathy, plant medicines and nutritional healing, the science of breath and the subconscious mind, shamanism and all the beautiful aspects of a holistic life to care for my family, my pets and my environment, and to offer guidance and counsel for my clients and friends.
In 2010 I entered into a 200 hour yoga teacher training at Yoga H’om in the Pittsburgh area.
At this time I also began to practice shamanism. My first teacher was Wolf Moondance.
This was the beginning of my spiritual awakening. Since then, I have devoured books on spirituality, transformation, higher consciousness, the subconscious mind, meditation, alchemy and more. It is natural to facilitate women's circles, as this feminine rebirthing of life is occurring now..
In 2011 Body in Balance Healing Center was born. We began offering “Yoga Adventure Retreats” and outdoor “Yoga Hikes” in the Laurel Highlands of Pennsylvania. Our Mission then and now was to build a Holistic Retreat Center - a place where experiential living and learning is the backbone. We support and foster all aspects of a healthy and adventurous lifestyle.
Since then our retreats have grown into holistic retreats and corporate retreats which are focussed on “Heart-Centered Business”.
We are currently in the process of establishing a 501c nonprofit which will bridge conventional and holistic health care AND make holistic health care accessible to all people.
Global community has become my passion. Uniting circles to facilitate transformation on a global scale. We are one. I recognize and celebrate the me in thee and the thou in me. Waking up to this fact alone can spur a ripple effect of unfathomable power and potential.
Let’s change the world with LOVE….One heart breath at a time….
