Heart of Tao Wellness

I am

I have been guiding Yoga for folks since 2010, both privately and in various group settings:
From yoga studios, recreation centers, rehabilitation facilities, military bases, kid's art camps, and schools to corporate offices. My yoga training includes trauma-informed therapy as well.
I taught multiple weekly classes for nearly eight years while living in Dallas, Texas.
In 2013 I had my initial Reiki training & attunement, which has opened me up to a vast & ever-evolving energy work practice over the last ten years. 
In 2014 I was introduced to the art of Vedic Thai yoga bodywork. I fell in love, and soon after, I enrolled in my first training with Mukti Buck and followed up with many more hours of certification later on with my teacher, Shama, out of Thailand. 
Somewhere in there, I became an ordained minister with the church of Life and officiated three ceremonies. 
In 2018, I relocated to Fort Worth. I decided the timing was advantageous to take a break from group yoga (outside of a handful of donation-based pop-up sessions) to focus on furthering my bodywork education and building a Fort Worth clientele. I maintained my one-on-one yoga sessions the whole time. 
I was certified in Cognitive behavioral therapy in 2019/20 and am continuously progressing with my CBT education at a turtle's pace.
Around that same time, I found resonance for Acutonics healing and bio-tuning. I have trained in and begun developing a relationship with sound and frequency medicine for the last five years, using tuning forks and hand chimes.
After years of offering Thai bodywork, moving from the Thai floor mat to the massage table was a natural evolution of my somatic health and wellness work. I became a licensed massage therapist in 2020, ten years after the initial thought seed was planted. My path came full circle and only expands from here. What a gift!
