Omniversal Yoga, Bodywork & Healing is simply my effort to help people and share what I've learned through my own experiences and explorations.
Omniversal, because I endeavor to explore all possibilities in an open and non-dogmatic way, to find what works and understand how and why, in regards to healing body and psyche, and understanding this journey :)
Omniversal also because Yoga to me is all encompassing. It is the art and science of living, and an all encompassing philosophy, sat chit ananda.
One area I have explored extensively is pain; the nature of pain, the purpose of pain and the remedies for pain.
My own struggles with debilitating back pain (and an intense spiritual experience) led me to study yoga and become a teacher. But I didn’t have enough knowledge to really help myself and my yoga students consistently, so I kept searching and learning and picked up many certifications in various body, mind and energy modalities until I found Chuck Duff at Coaching The Body Institute in 2011. Apprenticing with him, I learned Thai bodywork, functional anatomy, trigger point therapy, osteopathic muscle energy techniques and much more within the paradigm we now call Coaching The Body®.
Over time I became the lead therapist at the CTBI clinic in Chicago, a teacher at the school and a developer of curriculum and courses. I have helped hundreds of clients out of pain, even those that had been failed by internationally recognized rehab centers, and taught hundreds of students online and in-person.
In 2020 I moved my practice to Aurora, CO, and in addition to serving CTB bodywork clients and students, I started developing courses in yoga and self treatment, informed by the CTB methodology for restoring pain-free movement.
It is my mission and greatest pleasure to help people out of pain and help students learn to address pain effectively. I strive to keep evolving the CTB system and spread this incredible knowledge to more people through yoga, movement rehab and self treatment courses. I am so very thankful and grateful for this work and the teachers that have mentored me!
