I believe in . . .
getting deep & living light.
discipline & pleasure.
self-care & caring for the planet.
the healing power of nature, movement, clean foods
& also the curative effects of play, a hard laugh, & a slice of cake.
I believe in full self-expression & full self-acceptance.
I grew up with a vagabond-lifestyle and a joyful spirit. Inspired by my upbringing in the jungle of Maui and after earning a B.S. in Business Management, I founded the sustainable, all-natural, organic skincare line, Mukama Botanica.
With the satisfaction gained from making a positive impact on the beauty world and discovering the transformative effects of self-care, I decided to dive deeper into my life-long passion for wellness. I wanted to work with people – to be of service. So I became a certified 200-hour yoga instructor through YogaWorks, a certified meditation instructor through the first secular meditation studio, Unplug under the world-renowned davidji, and finished my Reiki II training with the incredible master, Kelsey Patel. My most metamorphic experience was during my studies in the Fundamentals of Hawaiian Healing with Hawaiian elders and teachers at Ho'omana Spa Maui.
As a teacher, I take pride in my gift to work with care, joy and integrity with people. My mission is to help others practice sustainable self-care through meditation, yoga, holistic recipes for the skin and body and aloha (love) – the recipe for joy, pleasure, self-love, self-acceptance and authenticity.
I offer classes and custom private sessions in person, via phone, or Skype.
