Yoga-CrossFit-Massage Therapy-Corrective Exercise - Movement Mechanics

 II have over 15 years experience working with the human body. I am a Certified Massage Therapist, 500-hour-level Registered Yoga Teacher, and a Level 1 CrossFit Trainer. I have been a life-long, multidisciplinary athlete since the age of 8. Although yoga and CrossFit are an part of my everyday fitness, I admit to being happiest when I am backpacking for days at a time, climbing the side of a rock face, or soaring in a paraglider.
I take pride every day in applying my diverse knowledge and experience to help people feel more confident in their own skin whether they be an athlete, injured, or someone just trying to crawl out from a life of being de-conditioned. I can offer comprehensive training sessions that are tailored to your specific needs and will help you find ways to reach your goals. If you’re serious about changing your habits and improving your exercise, nutrition, sleep, and overall help, together we will develop strategies to get you there.
