Did the rose
Ever open its heart

And give to this world
All its

It felt the encouragement of light
Against its

We all remain


Frightened.  – Hafiz

HeartMind-BodyArt offers private in-home yoga and qigong lessons, as well as structural and energetic bodywork. Whether you are in a place of health, or one of injury or illness, you can experience inherent wholeness, peace, and joy. Practices such as meditation, yoga, and qigong, along with hands-on touch, help the heart and mind rest, open and free the body, and provide room for expanded states of consciousness. 

I am a certified yoga and qigong teacher, and a certified practitioner of Zero Balancing, created by Dr. Fritz Smith, Osteopath and Acupuncturist. Zero Balancing is a holistic, hands-on bodywork that amplifies health and vitality through balancing body energy with body structure. Sessions can reduce discomfort and pain, promote postural alignment, and release tissue held memory. Zero Balancing is a tactile way of experiencing the relationship between our physical body and that which we cannot see, using gentle touch and attention to support integration and wholeness.

In addition to Zero Balancing, I have studied energy work through the modality of SourcePoint Therapy. I have practiced and taught yoga, qigong, and meditation since 2003, and studied herbalism and plant medicine since 2013. Each of these teaches me about listening within and without, doing and non-doing, giving and receiving.  They have been my places of peace, inspiration and joy through times of health, injury, and sickness, including a journey through cancer, surgery, and chemotherapy. Please see the tabs above for more information on my background and teachers. I look forward to seeing you soon!
