IMG_9694I absolutely love what I do. I work very hard to keep raising my skill level to offer my clients the very best and highest quality of conscious touch. I am passionate about helping others create “aha moments” for themselves – Zero Balancing is the most profound modality I have discovered that allows people to center themselves at the deepest levels. This year my leading edge, it developing myself more as a ZB teacher.
I am excited this year to offer more Zero Balancing classes, so that I can share this wonderful gift with other therapists, wellness and healthcare professionals.

I am very excited about helping create Irvington Wellness Center, and I adore my clients. I feel so honored and fortunate to have such incredible people walk through my door.

Little by little, we are growing and growing. I love seeing a full yoga class, but what really thrills me is after yoga class, seeing the smiles and comradery and community that is being developed here.
We are not just classes, we are community – building that community is what Irvington Wellness Center is all about.

While people do become more fit here, fitness is not our goal. While people become stronger here, strength is not our goal. While people improve their mind/body connection here – that is not our goal either. Our intention is for people to be happier. That’s it. The fitness, the strength, the increased awareness are all wonderful side-effects that happen when people dive into themselves.

My hope is that by accessing the space through classes and services, people will have a deeper connection to who they really are, and of course, have a lot of fun doing it. Because having fun, surrounded by people you love is a great way to live.
