Welcome!  Yoga, Yoga Nidra, and Ayurveda are excellent tools to help create a better life experience right now.  Through Yoga and Yoga Nidra, I help others feel centered and develop the ability to move from the present moment.  I guide Yoga and Yoga Nidra with an approach through grace and compassion. I have been a yoga practitioner since 2000 and was RYT 200 certified (YANA Shala Dallas, Texas) in 2017. I created Grace Yoga to share Yoga Nidra worldwide.

My Yoga Nidra meditations are reaching thousands of listeners all over the world to help them meditate and rest.  An excellent way to listen to my meditations is through the Insight Timer app, where my meditations have been used hundreds of thousands of times.  Other outlets for listening are SoundCloud and YouTube.

The Grace Yoga mission is to provide tools that relieve stress and cultivate a healthy, enriched, balanced, and love-centered life. Yoga Nidra is an amazing tool that activates the parasympathetic nervous system.  Too often our bodies are responding to stress and we operate from the “fight or flight” mode, the sympathetic nervous system.  Grace Yoga’s tools and practices teach the body to activate the parasympathetic nervous system and to function from the “rest and digest” state.  At Grace Yoga, our vision is for participants to enjoy their life experiences, from the present moment with clarity and calmness.

Currently, I am earning a certification as an Ayurvedic Life Coach through Alpha Omega Yoga in Dallas, Texas.  Ayurveda encompasses a wide variety of tools and is a sister practice of Yoga.  At Grace Yoga we use Ayurveda to work with individuals and their unique makeup to stay in balance.  Ayurveda is a way to find imbalances in the body and provide tools to help the body return to its centered and natural state.  Ayurvedic tools include diet, herbs, and self-care practices.

Through observations Ayurveda targets to correct an imbalance at the source, such as digestion.  Ayurveda teaches that digestion is balanced by how we eat and what we eat.  I love cooking Ayurvedic dishes and putting my own creative spin on recipes.  Here at Grace Yoga, you have access to healthy and balanced meals and recipes.

I began practicing yoga in 2000 at the University of Texas at Dallas. My approach to yoga is one of grace, compassion, and ease (“suka” in Sanskrit). I completed my RYT 200 certification through the YANA Shala school in Dallas, Texas.

In the near future, I plan to start my RYT 500 yoga training.
