With a degree in psychology and interest in helping people achieve mental wellness combined with a background in physical fitness as an instructor and personal trainer, I started my own business: Wave of Wellness was born with a mission to expose clients to fun lifestyle activities that enhance all areas of well-being, with a focus on SUP and yoga.
Through an intense study and practice of Body Dialogue yoga my chronic back pain was healed. Excited to share my success with others I currently use its principles of postural alignment, core-stabilization, breath and energy direction, as a unique platform for instructing SUP, yoga, and Bala Tula – a yoga fusion program I developed in 2010.
Deeply involved in the SUP racing circuit as an athlete and wanting to build the local paddle racing community I founded and direct the Annual Lake Mary Jane Paddle Race in 2012 and the original Florida weekly race series Paddle Race Tuesdays in 2013.
My love for adventure and travel inspired me to take my instruction abroad, teaching national and international SUP Yoga and Bala Tula clinics as well as organizing and facilitating international SUP and yoga retreats where I offer clients the ultimate experience of adventure, inner peace, personal growth, physical fitness, and community.
My involvement and lifestyle in the SUP and yoga industry has given me the opportunity to contribute written articles and instructional videos to Stand Up Journal, Boarders Magazine, Samata Magazine, Women’s Health Magazine Mexico, Distressed Mullet, and Yoga Digest.
