Helping the community has been a part of my identity, for as long as I can recall. Utilizing movement and nature has helped me find peace and a central part of my self-ritual since I was a child. These unique coping skills separated me from many groups.
Discovering a community that accepted me and aligned with my spiritual beliefs proved to be a challenge for an extensive period. Becoming a single mother to my son who has autism while proving to be another obstacle. This path in my life lead me to self-discovery and growth.
Despite having a long history filled with spiritual work, yoga never felt like it was for me. But the universe continually gave me signs to dive into my yoga teacher training. Once in training I realized the reason I was led to this training. With gentle guidance and active research, I began to uncover the healing reciprocal benefits for individuals with autism and their caregivers.
I look forward to sharing these tools with you and your loved ones and to have the opportunity for you (my clients) to continually teach you as I walk down this path with my son.
I am home now, and my passion is to serve you and especially those with unique abilities.
Mindfulness on the Spectrum
Yoga therapy is a movement therapy that teaches children how to quiet and focus their minds. It builds strength, stability, flexibility, and balance and improves a child’s capacity to perceive and interact within the world; breathing techniques calm the mind and still the body. Through mindfulness practices, your loved one will develop self-awareness. Creative play, yoga games, and partner integration if possible make yoga therapy fun. Children stretch their imaginations as they stretch their bodies and spirits. Yoga is non competitive; partnering in poses and sharing thoughts create a sense of community and elevate self-esteem. Creating an environment that is quiet and spacious prevents overloading the senses. The duration of the sessions, choice of postures, and extent of interaction with others is tailored to the individual. Yoga therapy offers routine and structure, as well as novelty and play. It is a therapy that meets your loved one wherever they uniquely are.
