Once upon a time...


I was in a cage. I was 100 lbs heavier. I was ruled by societal norms and expectations. I was miserable. I was addicted to food, alcohol, meaningless sex and anything that would temporarily subdue the raging wolf woman scratching at the inside of my skin. 

When I lost the weight I also lost the illusion of security and all of my aching spots became too obvious to ignore. The source of my discontent was not alleviated by running until I wanted to throw up or depriving myself of everything delicious in the world. So what the fuck now ? Soul work.

Yoga was my introduction to healing, energy and soul excavation which would ultimately unveil my purpose; reclamation, activation and alchemy of the Sacred Feminine. Working with women, the re-wilding of our essence and coming HOME to all that we are at the core is my active mission.

I do this work through my words in my writing. I facilitate retreats and trainings around the world with a base in Connecticut (for now). I lead INTUITIVE Yoga Teacher Training programs at the 200HR and 300HR  (Accredited by Yoga Alliance RYS200/300) through Wild Essence Yoga School. I lead women's circles and curate the sisterhood, the tribe in every gathering I facilitate. 

All of my teachings are rooted in yogic philosophy, with a deep and constant anchor into the NATURAL, ENERGETIC, COSMIC cycles and truth of the soul of the world. 

The wolf woman I am has emerged from the ashes of all that I used to be. From trauma, addiction, death, and rebirth- I offer myself humbly and with unwavering authenticity to the service of your souls revival.
