I use Craniosacral Therapy, Iyengar Yoga and Mindfulness Meditation to help others discover and relate to the physical emotional and intellectual aspects of themselves!
Dr. William Sutherland, the founder of Cranial Osteopathy, identified a basic energy he referred to as the "Breath of Life", which he and others believe to be the primary ordering principle of the human being. It is present in the fluids, tissues and bones, all aspects of the body, and is expressed in the core; the brain, spinal cord, etc. The intention of this therapy, done with gentle hands-on work, is to re-establish this vital force wherever it has been impeded by traumatic forces or events, illness, even embryological and genetic factors.
“Craniosacral therapy is a gentle, non-invasive, hands-on healing modality that focuses on the wave-like rhythmic pulse that goes through the entire body. This therapy stems from osteopathy, which is an approach that emphasizes the role of the musculoskeletal system in health and disease.
In a typical one- to two-hour session, the client lies quietly, fully clothed, while the practitioner makes light contact at selected points around the head, torso, knees, and feet. This light contact consists of gentle finger pressure, with no bone manipulation or forceful thrusts such as those used in chiropractic work or osteopathy.”

Devon, England, 2002.
Taught in the classic Theravadan tradition, Vipassana Bhavana, "the development of insight", embodies the essence of the teachings of the Buddha. This path to self awareness is extraordinary in its simplicity, its lack of dogma, and above all, its results. I will provide instruction and guidance to help you cultivate an effective meditation practice. I have studied with HH the 14th Dalai Lama as well as many other meditation masters and teachers, begining in 1989 with Vipassana Bhavana, as the Buddha first taught it, and later I became a Tibetan Buddhist practitioner.
I use yoga as a technique for treatment of chronic issues, and only offer private theraputic sessions utilizing equipment specifically designed by BKS Iyengar.
Synonymous with Hatha yoga, the Iyengar tradition is perhaps the most popular in America, if not worldwide. This vigorous style emphasizes the development of stamina, flexibility, balance and concentration. This method requires precision in the execution of positions and meticulous anatomical alignment. In his teaching, B.K.S. Iyengar encourages the integration of yoga into everyday living; family life, health, even dying, positioning yoga practice as a true union of body, mind and spirit.
