There’s a bit of folk wisdom that says, “We don’t see things as they are — we see them as we are."


Mindfulness is a practice of being present with what is actually happening, free from habits and conditioning, seeing things as they are and choosing how we wish to respond.  Trauma Sensitive Yoga, Yoga Therapy, Meditation, Health Coaching and Reiki  can help us work with both the body and the mind to gain greater clarity about who we are and what’s meaningful to us. Mindfulness gives us the freedom to make choices in life, and helps us develop a deeper appreciation for ourselves and others.
