The Healthy Habit Maker!

Recognized as one of the top yoga teachers in Gunnison, Colorado, I’ve been helping my students and clients safely and effectively find tools and practices to help them attain optimal health and wellness since 2000. Whether you want to learn to live more mindfully, be more flexible, move with more ease, build lean muscle mass, I can design a program specific to your needs. My personalized approach will help you achieve a wide range of wellness and fitness goals.

A Bit More About Me

My desire is to make wellness a habit for all!

I believe living a healthy lifestyle begins with maintaining a strong, fit body and mind. For years I attempted to accomplish this purely through the means of a yoga practice. As I myself age, I more fully appreciate and understand the necessity and powerful effects that a consistent daily fitness and exercise routine has on the human body and mind. That is why after 17 years as a Yoga Alliance Approved E-RYT yoga teacher I went back to school and became a certified personal trainer and online fitness coach. My aim is to help you identify your wellness goals, design a game-plan that fits your needs and one in which you can see you "sticking with it". , and guide you through the process of implementing it into your life. My holistic approach to fitness and health will have you feeling successful, empowered and seeing results in no time.

What I Can Do For You

As a certified trainer and experienced Yoga Alliance approved yoga teacher, I offer a wide range of fitness services and training styles. More than just getting you more "flexible" or into shape, I also help with improving your nutrition, personal development, endurance, strength, rehabilitating from injury, and sports-specific training. You can choose from a wide array of existing training and or class options, or you can design your own.

From my year's of experience as a yoga teacher I have found that most of my students come in needing the anti-life yoga. Undoing or reversing the damage done from years of improper posture, imbalances in the body and of course the ravages of stress! I work with all ages and ability levels including children, seniors and wheelchair bound. In the winter of 2018 I will be offering my chair yoga for seniors classes available to purchase and stream online.

Tired of sitting all day in the office? Do your body a favor and get your blood pumping. Health and fitness is as much about what your body looks like on the outside as it is about how it functions on the inside. Your heart is a muscle, too, and my workouts will get your heart-rate up. Your body will thank you for it!

I have found a wonderful way to set you up for success that is both supported and affordable! We start with meeting in person or on ZOOM for a one on one meeting. I get a clear picture of your goals, your struggles, identify an online fitness program to get you started on. You are added to my online accountability group. Near the completion of your program we assess your progress and identify the next steps.

There is so much that we have no control

Becoming an online wellness coach and mentor is not just for people like me. It is really an opportunity for others to become inspired by you. Your journey will resonate with someone else. Your struggles are shared by someone else. Your personality is just what someone else connects with.  All the tools are already there, you are simply keeping others on track. I will mentor you and guide you through the process of becoming an online fitness/wellness coach. No experience required.
