I am inspired & humbled by every day life & regular people. For my accomplishments I consider being a Mother, Sister, Granddaughter, Friend, Wife and neighbor just as important as my "professional" accomplishments. I'm actually happy I never had a "guru" I studied under because most of the ones at the top royally dropped the ball. I had regular, ridiculously wise, every day teachers, like Johnny Gillespie, Pat Iyer, Rolf Gates & David Vendetti. They taught me that true enlightenment can be found in the mundane and that God is in the eyes and hearts of all people. I see this in my students and the hundreds of teachers I have graduated from my Yoga training programs.
I am an ERYT-500 Certified Yoga Alliance Teacher, a YACEP Continuing Ed Provider, Balanced Athlete Level 2 Coach, Yin Yoga & Meditation Certified, Director of the Sacred Seeds Yoga School & Curriculum and Owner of the Canton Yoga Shala in Canton, MA since 2011. I feel honored to be a Motivational Speaker for everything from Schools to Social Service/Crisis jobs to millionaires in Corporate America. I know that Social Work is in my blood. I work hard to raise money for various charities through Yoga. I've been a New England Presenter for the past 8 years for Yoga Reaches Out at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, MA. My team & I have raised over $400,000 for Children's Hospital, The hOMebase Yoga Benefit for Veterans of MGH & their families as well as numerous other charities and local families. I have trained my teachers to "go into the holes" where they don't have these teachings available readily: prisons, rehabs, schools and nursing homes so that everyone can get access to these helpful teachings. I've spent a significant amount of time training teachers in NH & Maine and have been a 6 time presenter for the Maine Yoga Festival and regularly host retreats and trainings at Kripalu Center for Healing Arts in Lenox, MA.
