Where herbalism, yoga and Reiki collide
I am a Traditional Western Herbalist, Yoga Instructor, Dance Teacher, Movement Artist, and Reiki teacher offering private and group classes in State College, PA. At first glance this may seem like a wide array of disciplines but it is in the intersections between them that my interest lies. All of these modalities offer support and self care tools for individuals of all walks of life. I am grateful and humbled to share these tools with you on your journey through life.
I hold a BFA in dance from Temple University and have been studying movement since I was a young child. I fist started doing yoga while in college and felt particularly drawn to alignment based yoga styles such as Iyengar and Anusara. In the summer of 2017 I traveled to Rishikesh, India where I completed a 200 hour Astanga Yoga Teacher Training Certificate Course at the International Society of Yoga and Meditation.
In 2015 I relocated to Ithaca, NY to do a 400 hour Community Herbalism Intensive The Northeast School of Botanical Medicine with herbalist/botanist 7Song. After the course was over I went on to apprentice with him through 2017. Previous to this move I studied with Herbalist Susan Hess near Philadelphia, PA. In herbalism my interests lie specifically in how to incorporate herbal medicines easily into peoples lives, immune support for families, educating individuals about the plants that grow around them, and in the realm of sexual health.
Reiki entered my life early in 2009 when I began studying at the Reiki School and Clinic in Philadelphia, PA. I holds a Reiki Master Practitioner certificate from The Reiki School and got my Reiki Master Teacher certificate through Learn Reiki Philadelphia in 2012. Since then I have taught all levels of Usui Shiki Ryoho, certified new teachers and worked with private clients. I also host Yoga and Reiki classes and community Reiki clinics.
