Invest in your Health!

The goals of Conscious LifeStyle and Wellness are to support and guide you in a transformational process so that you can live a more healthy, vibrant and radiant life! Getting to the 'root cause' of any dis-ease that we are experiencing is the only way to make lasting change in the Body, Mind, and Spirit. Living the life you love isn't just about eating the right foods, having the right yoga practice, stress management techniques, or making sure you're getting enough sleep. Yes, these are important lifestyle practices. But what I teach is the importance of connecting the Body-Mind-Environment to your human system on a deep level. Bringing in specific practices that will help your whole system, physical, mental, emotional and Spiritual, in relationship to your environment make a shift that will change the way you see and heal yourself. 

When we really want to create change or learn something that we can apply to our life, we don’t just do it once. One day at the gym! No, we invest in a program or a series of lessons. We commit to a process. We jump in whole heartily and do whatever it takes to accomplish our desires and goals we want to attain. Why wouldn’t this be the same for your health issues you are facing in your own life?

How long have you had that back pain? Or been dealing with your digestive issues, fatigue, hormonal imbalances, or lack of sleep? They didn’t happen overnight…

Take the Next Step…Invest your time, energy and finances in a program, workshop or one-on-one sessions with me that will give you the structure you need to transform your life. 

No matter where you live, all sessions except the Alexander Technique can be done on-line. I can also meet you at your home or workplace. Travel fees apply.
 

Click Here to set up your 'Age Well. Live Well' session and find a Program that is right for you! 

Let me know what’s going on with you, what health concerns you have and together we will discuss the best options for you to get going on the road back to optimal health!

Women are often more deeply impacted than men by the everyday stresses of modern society.  This often leaves women feeling depleted and out of harmony with who they are and what they want to achieve in life. 

What Yoga, Ayurveda, and the Alexander Technique have in common is that they “wake you up” to the present moment, teaching you how to better manage your stress and tension in your everyday life.

Yoga helps you to create a healthy lifestyle with an asana, breath, and meditation practice.

Ayurveda helps you to understand your body type and how creating daily routine, choosing the right foods and spices for your imbalances and working with the 5 sense therapies can be medicine for your entire system.

The Alexander Technique will help you recognize your faulty habit patterns in your movements, such as walking, sitting, standing and lifting that are creating tensions and stress throughout your body.  

Come explore and learn how these 3 holistic disciplines can transform your everyday life. The practices of Yoga, Ayurveda, and the Alexander Technique have benefits for women of all ages and stages of life.

Come learn how the AT can help you do whatever you do a little bit easier.


Do you have neck, back, or knee pain? Do you find that your balance is not what it use to be? Are you dealing with stress in your life? As we age it is harder to recover for these types of 'problems' that we face on a daily basis. Learning how we move out of the tension pattern that pain and stress create throughout our body is what is important. The Alexander Technique offers a clear, systematic approach to being able to recognize our patterns of habit and move out of them in any given moment. So whether you spend your day sitting at a computer, up on your feet all day, or you're a performer, the Alexander Technique teaches you how to do whatever you're doing a little bit easier. Observation, awareness, inhibition (being able to stop, look and listen) are key principles to making any change.

The beauty of this technique is that it teaches you to be your own teacher. It promotes self-responsibility and self-care that allows you to change habitual patterns in how you use your body by becoming more mindful. Join me and discover the benefits of the AT in your life! Learn

Benefits You Gain from Studying the Alexander Technique:


  • Learn to relieve chronic lower back, neck and shoulder pain
  • Improve posture and coordination
  • Enhance presentation skills by overcoming fear and stage fright
  • Improve skills in the performing arts, sports, and yoga
  • Reduce tension and stress in everyday activities (walking, driving, computer work, cooking)
  • Increase energy and mental clarity
  • Self help skills to work with on your own
 

Group classes are fun and interactive way to learn the technique.

YogaTech Works: An Integrated Approach to Movement, Breath & Consciousness


Small Group Class in Ojai

In today's modern society asana practice has been reduced to a 'work-out', where people feel that they have to be 'doing' something in order to get any benefits from their practice.  Yoga to me is a work within, an 'inner-cise" not an exercise. What the asana poses and sequences of movement do is to help you connect the body and mind to the breath. When this happens something within us begins to change. Pranayama (breathing practice) and meditation are  key components in helping to bring our bodies back into balance. Allowing the mind to stop the 'chatter' that is sometimes constant.

Creating present moment awareness helps us to reduce the stress and tension in our body and mind. I combine my years of teaching the Alexander Technique to all of my classes, which helps you to release unnecessary patterns of movement in your practice of asana, breath, and meditation. Taking this new awareness into your daily life!

These classes will leave you feeling balanced, refreshed and re-energized. 

Small group class are designed to help you distress, unwind and renew. If you have a group of 4 or more people who would like to take a series of 6 classes together, give me a call. We can do it at my place or I can come to you!
