Thai Yoga Massage
Thai Yoga Massage (TYM) is an ancient healing art that combines the alignment of the breath, yoga asana and mindfulness meditation of Metta (loving compassion) into a flowing dance of continuous rhythmic motion to deliver a soothing and revitalizing experience. TYM is based on an understanding of energy lines and marma points in the body, working with balancing the energetic bodies and freeing & removing any blockages that may present in the physical, mental, emotional bodies.

I have been teaching yoga since December 2009. Yoga has played a major role in my life ever since I walked through the doors of Bikram Yoga Buffalo. I was in poor health physically, mentally and emotionally. After my first class I felt wrung out, exhausted, a little sore and incredibly alive. I couldn’t believe that I could do something that difficult and still want to come back for more. For the first time in years I stopped feeling as if my body had somehow betrayed me and I instinctively knew that if I continued to put in the effort I would shine.
Over the years I have explored many traditions of movement, fitness, wholistic healing, and general self exploration. I have space for all in my toolbox for healing but the simplest of asanas continue to be my foundation. I love the fancy stuff, the challenges, but I LOVE the basics. Whenever I am in doubt or feeling low I reach for the simples, my medicine, my magic, the space where I can tune out and tune in to my holiness. Where I can truly honor my temple, this vessel that I am slowly remembering how to respect and love.
