Yoga is my way to a healthier life
Yoga connects the body, mind and spirit. That is why I love the practice. As a yoga teacher, I will guide you through different poses to help the energy flow throughout the body. I focus on alignment, breath and movement.

PNF stretching stands for proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation stretching. It’s a technique used to improve flexibility and range of motion by targeting specific muscle groups. PNF stretching is often used by athletes, physical therapists, and fitness enthusiasts to improve their performance and prevent injury.
PNF stretching involves a combination of passive stretching and isometric contractions. The process begins with a passive stretch of the targeted muscle group, followed by an isometric contraction that activates the muscle being stretched. After holding the contraction for a few seconds, the muscle is then relaxed and stretched further than before. This cycle is repeated several times to gradually increase the range of motion.
Reiki is a form of alternative therapy that originated in Japan in the early 20th century. It is based on the idea that a practitioner can channel energy into a client’s body to promote healing and balance.
The word “Reiki” comes from the Japanese words “rei” and “ki,” which mean “spiritual energy” and “life force energy,” respectively. The Reiki practitioners believe that this energy can be channeled through their hands into the patient’s body, helping to alleviate pain, reduce stress, and promote relaxation.
During a Reiki session, the patient typically lies down fully clothed while the practitioner places their hands on or near different parts of the body. The practitioner may also use specific hand positions to target particular areas of the body.
