First and foremost I want to welcome you into my world. I began on this journey ultimately when I became a mother to my daughter, but my path of grad school and office work shifted to the path I am on today in April 2018. As I was yet again, sitting in my cubicle working on documentation, in efforts to keep up with productivity I knew I needed a change. Although I have been happily helping families and children of this community for 7 years in my job at a nonprofit behavioral health agency, there was something missing for me. So here I sit today, a certified children’s yoga teacher through Kidding around Yoga, and a postpartum doula working towards DONA certification with my own business Happy OM Yoga & More.
I am excited to be able to help children and families in a new way. Yoga has been an amazing tool for me in finding healthy skills for self regulation, decreasing anxiety and truly becoming closer to myself and my center. I hope to bring you, the parent/caregiver, new tools and information on how to bring kindness, peace and compassion into your home, as well as a little FUN through the practice of yoga and meditation!
Furthermore, with my birth experience, mental health background and passion for empowering woman I knew postpartum support was 100% my wheelhouse. I hope through this blog I can empower and education mothers and families on the importance of the 4th trimester, and everything that comes along with the first 12 weeks of your newborns life. I hope to share my own experiences, while you are navigating yours.
Truly, thank you for joining me on this journey. I appreciate you.
The light in me, sees the light in you.
