Hi! I am the founder of Yogic Tools with Guruatma.
Motto: EveryBODY can do yoga! If you can breathe, you can do yoga.
Mission: to educate, support and LIFT UP those who suffer from chronic or critical illness by incorporating yoga, lifestyle and meditation via courses and one-on-one coaching sessions.
Why I’m qualified:
For the past 42 years, I’ve studied extensively about how yoga, breathing techniques, meditation, diet and nutrition, PT, attitude and lifestyle choices affect chronic/critical illness. My own experience with a rare and relapsing autoimmune disease and the loss of my hearing gives me deep and on-going exposure to the wide array of issues facing those of us who find ourselves fighting in these arenas.
I specialize in teaching Chair Yoga for Seniors and Physically Challenged People and work with clients challenged by pain and depression, peripheral neuropathy, loss of mobility, facing death, hearing loss and the debilitating side-effects of drugs and chemotherapy, glandular and nervous system imbalance, weight and addiction issues, and life-altering illness.
My website offers a bountyFULL cornucopia of useful tools – including webinars, videos, blogs, my free offering of a valuable, very practical workbook called ‘6 Stages of Healing’ and LOTS of information and references.
I’ve been teaching since 1980 and am certified with the International Association of Yoga Therapists (2012). I’m also a retired Registered Massage Therapist and a dynamic motivational speaker!
