My passion is offering non-judgemental support to women throughout their life's journey. Through the practice of yoga, yoga nidra, meditation, educational classes, workshops, reatreats and full circle (full spectrum) doula services, I support women through menarche, menstruation, fertility and infertility, conception and contraception, miscarriage and loss, pregnancy, postpartum, motherhood, perimenopause and menopause. My yoga and healing programs assist women in empowering themselves from within, relieving the discomforts and stresses of every day life, strengthening their minds and bodies and creating space for a sacred pause during their busy day.
The deep meditative practice of woman-centered yoga has guided me through two pregnancies, the birth of twins, a homebirth, an international move, divorce and the many challenges of motherhood and life. Through yoga, yoga nidra and meditation I have learned to bring more happiness into my life, to live in my own true nature - joy!
I enjoy offering in-home private and semi-private group yoga, yoga nidra and meditation lessons so women can practice in their own sacred space, where they are able to release and let go of what no longer serves them and draw in what they need to experience at that present time. Group classes are also available in my space as well around Kuwait.
Since 2004 I have facilitated women's fitness classes for thousands of women in the United States and abroad. I am a professionally trained full circle (full spectrum) doula and am in training to become a Fertility Awareness Educator and Sexual & Reproductive Health Educator. My offerings have expanded to include women's wellness retreats and yoga teacher trainings for yoga and fitness professionals, doulas, childbirth educators, fertility awareness educators, midwives, nurses and women's health and wellness professionals. In my free time I read books, play video games and travel the world with my three children.
