A full-time job with lots of stress, young family, financial and time pressures made me a person who was not nice to be around. Add to that a mid-life crisis where I was searching for purpose and wondering about the meaning of life. I had already started practicing yoga so the introduction to mindfulness and meditation was quick as they are inter-connected. I was told (and read) that mindfulness leads to all these great benefits, but I will admit it: I was doubtful. Mindfulness sounded a little too good to be true. All the benefits sounded a tad out there. I believe in evidence and research, so it was hard for me to wrap my head around it. Until, I started noticing them for myself. Mindfulness is a great way to train the mind.
As Sapiens, we have an incredible gift which can be a curse at the same time. We can observe our own thoughts, talk to ourselves and generally stress ourselves out. This is usually done by focusing enormous amounts of time ruminating about the past or thinking about the future. In the process we forget to take the time to enjoy the present.
In our one-on-one sessions, I would like to work with you and share with you the benefits of mindfulness. These sessions will give you the opportunity to tackle specific situations in your life. We can develop strategies to deal successfully with them in private and safe surroundings. Mindfulness is one of the best ways to get to know yourself, from the inside out.

I am a yoga and mindfulness teacher but, first and foremost, a devoted mindfulness practitioner. I am learning, discovering, and deepening my understanding every day. I have lived experience with mental health and young male suicide. As such I found mindfulness through my own experiences, studies, and practice.
What initially began as a stress management exercise has now become the mainstay of my daily life. Over the years I have cultivated my own personal practice by establishing a daily mindfulness practice and participating in mindfulness trainings.
