Changing the World...
...One breath at a time.

Yoga
My vision as a yoga instructor is to guide my students towards Self-Knowledge in a supportative and safe way.
A long time sutdent of Alignment Based Yoga (Anusara & Iyengar), I believe in taking time in poses and relaxation and helping you breathe your way to Shavasana.
My classes are based on my personal daily practice, some time mellow and restorative, other time active and fiery.

Doula
I wish to bring women support during and after their labor.
I wish to help partners be supportive to their lovely wife.
I wish that no women will give birth feeling alone, unsupported or uneducated.

What I'd like to offer you is companionship, knowledge and belief in the natural birth process whether at home or in a hospital setting.
I am your servant and guide towards your inner power.

Join my mailing list to be invited in my Mama Circle Potluck events.
We meet monthly in my home to tell our birth stories and fist parenting experience.
We exchange tips, we offer each other support, we eat yummy food and drink wine, we may also brag or vent about our relationships. Come alone or with babies ...

For more information, please contact me and you are also welcome to join our Doula Mama Group.

Pre and Post Natal Yoga
Helping Women go through Motherhood transistions and give them support, empower and nurture them is my Goal.
My classes are not just about Yoga, they are a place to meet Friends and find answers.
My knowledge of Alignment based Yoga will help Women to get the most benefits from their yoga practice during and after pregnancy.
My passion for Mindfulness will them inward and help them relax deeply.

I am thankful to my teachers (Jane Austin, Gurmukh, Marissa Torino) and all the women I've meet along the way and guided me to where I am.
I hope to transmit this knowledge to many women and help them find their freedom.

    Books and Resources
    Stillbirth, Yet Still Born by Deborah Davis (more geared towards the immediate period of learning your baby has died & how to move forward. Good info on how to optimize your time with them and honor them when you are paralyzed by the shock)

    Empty Cradle Broken Heart (Surviving the Death of your Baby) by Deborah Davis (lots of advice of grieving & coping after various forms of infant loss; includes an interesting & more medically detailed description of the effects of trauma/grief)

    Notes for the Everlost: A Field Guide to Grief by Kate Inglis (part memoir, part handbook for heartbroken parents of baby loss, kind of brash at times. Mom had a crash C-section for preemie twins - one lives and one dies)

    An Exact Replica of a Figment of my Imagination by Elizabeth McCracken (well-written memoir of a woman's stillbirth while living abroad and her subsequent pregnancy/baby. Def has some dark humor in there but offers hope, too)

    They Were Still Born: Personal Stories about Stillbirth by Janet Atlas (great compilation of stories from parents and grandparents affected by stillbirth; 2nd half of book is all facts and research being done on stillbirth.)

    About
    Bonjour and Thank You for your interest.

    I am a Yoga Instructor (ERYT500), a Mindfulness Educator (ME)(MBSR) and a Doula (DTI).
    I teach people and their family on how to relax in the present moment.
    I have taught yoga since 2010 in various studios and school of the Bay Area.
    I have learned first-hand during pregnancy how important yoga is to women's health and well being.
    A part of my practice is therefore orientated to help women in transition to motherhood.
    I am interested in sharing real life experience with my students, advocating for a holistic approach to pregnancy and birth.
    I wish to create a community of Moms to be and new Mothers where they can find adequate support.
    With a background in early childhood education and a love for mindfulness and neuroscience, I have dedicated the rest of my practice to children well-being.
    In that realm I have studied and taught children and youth yoga, as well as mindfulness to children and to families.
