I teach people how to find their way to their heart, to discover the power of self-awareness and self-love in healing.

Yoga, Meditation, Energetic Healing and Self-Awareness have been my driving tools that have awakened my heart.  And through these tools I share with you ways to awaken yours.

My travels and work abroad have opened my eyes and my heart, awakened my spirit and given me the courage to be ME!

Through this journey I found my way to my heart; my way home!

I am passionate about helping others and I am driven by pure Love.

Teaching and sharing what I do lights me up!

I use the tools, skills and experiences I have acquired throughout my life and teach ways to develop self-awareness.  I believe that in order to find balance, joy and love in your life you must develop the ability to turn inward and listen.  This requires practice, patience, and a will to do so.  It requires you to have physical, emotional, energetic and spiritual awareness.

As my awareness of my Self was developing, I began to perceive my life and my work differently.  I was beginning  to discovered deeper layers of my self, and this had a great impact in my work as an educator.  My connection to my students and my co-workers deepened with greater compassion and empathy.  I was no longer teaching in the traditional sense, but rather leading.  I was learning about myself through my work and my relationships.

My inner journey of self-discovery started after I experienced a burnout.  I was able to recover from this burnout by using mindfulness practices such as yoga and meditation. (learn more about my burnout here).  This changed my life and I was beginning to see that I had another purpose, that as much as I loved aspects of my job, something greater was calling me!

I left the teaching world and embarked on creating my own business called the Healing H’Art.  Essentially, The Healing H’Art is a place where people come to learn ways to heal.  I use mindfulness practices such as yoga and meditation, energetic healing, and self-awareness to teach people ways to bring holistic healing and well-being into their lives and in their workplace.

The Healing H’Art is as a place where I can share my knowledge, my wisdom, my gifts, my strengths, my weaknesses, my fears, my vulnerability and my journey.

On my own journey to finding a place in me that I could call home I have learned so much about myself and humbly want to share what I have found helpful for me to find more peace, love, stillness, joy and abundance in my life!

If you are ready to make some changes to your life and awaken in you that passion, that spark, that joy and that person you are meant to be in this world, I offer a few ways we can work together.

About my travels and teachings

 

Travelling & teaching changes you…

My first taste as a teacher was in South Korea. I worked as an English teacher, met incredible people and made unforgettable memories. Learning the Korean culture, and eating things that were unknown to me, excited me! I made great friendships, taught all ages, went to many karaoke bars, ate lots of kimchi, and left Korea enriched with a craving for more adventures! South Korea put the travelling bug in me and awakened the teacher in me which led me to teacher’s college and get my Bachelor in Education.

Dare to Dream…
During my short stay in Thailand I had a vision of what life on an island would be like. Little did I know that, that vision was going to manifest itself.

A few years later, I pursued my teaching career and took a one-year teaching contract at Saipan International School teaching math and science. Saipan, Saipan, Saipan… the universe heard me!

This was the start of a 10-year love affair with the island of Saipan and a discovery of how my empathic and genuine nature to help others would lead me to discover strong professional and personal connections.

Awakening ME through my burnout…

Four years into my career as a science and math teacher I found myself depressed, depleted of energy, and negative.  Even though I was living in paradise, I was having a difficult time with the demands of my job and almost quit.  I did not recognize that I was experiencing a burnout, until later.  I took up yoga classes to help in dealing with the stress.  That was the best thing I ever did.  Being on that mat gave me a space to be with me… not the teacher me…nor the co-worker me… just me.  I learned to breathe, I learned to listen to my body, and I learned to feel my emotions! When your job demands you to be intellectual all day, it’s hard to be in the present moment, at least that is what I thought.

I started to meditate and continued with my yoga practice and what I learned about myself, helped me understand why I had arrived at the point of burnout.  My perfectionist ways, my insecurities, my fears of not being or having enough and my work addiction are things that brought my system into overwhelm.  It was only years later, that I was able to see those years as a blessing.

Burnout allowed me to address the things my soul needed and it’s with my mindfulness practices that I was able to develop a deeper sense of self and an awareness on different levels.  From this place of recognition and understanding I was now able to lead and guide others.

Mindfulness and self-awareness had an impact on my ability to teach…

A huge realization as a teacher was seeing the impact of my own self-awareness coupled with my yoga and meditation practice had on my students.  I had more patience and I was able to see and meet their needs with greater compassion. I was more creative and found my own classroom strategies that met my students and my needs  Developing my self-awareness was key to becoming a better teacher, a better person and a better co-worker.

 

From Science Teacher to Yoga Teacher…

Bali…ah Bali! Here I am! I made my way to Bali during the summers of my stay in Saipan.  I traveled to Bali 4 times (every 2 years) and it wasn’t planned.  This is where I obtained my 500 hours Advanced Yoga Teaching Certification.

Bali is the place that helped me see that I am spirit.  My stay in an Ashram opened my heart and my Yoga Teacher Trainings, striped me of my false beliefs, grounded me, and awoke me to my own divinity. Yoga was the magical tool that showed me the way to my heart!

Saipan gave me the confidence and space to rediscover, trust and love myself. I got to see first-hand the impact of mindfulness practices like yoga and meditation on kids and teens.  During my tenure at that school we implemented a yoga and meditation program for the teens.

During these life changing years, I went from teaching full time high school science and math to developing my own business of Yoga, Meditation, Mindfulness and Energetic Healing; “The Healing H’Art”.

I now understand the difference between career and vocation. My love for teaching never ended, instead it lead me to create a series of mindfulness, mentoring programs and workshop to help teachers and other professionals overcome and prevent burnout. It’s about developing resilience through self-awareness and mindfulness.  It’s about Awakening Hearts!

About my work

 

My work, my passion and my purpose…

All of my life and work experience have lead me here, as I continue to navigate my own internal landscape I share, teach and guide you through yours.

We are all interconnected into this life web in which we are here to love one another and ourselves.  In order to find joy in our hearts we must learn to know ourselves; to know our mind, our body and our spirit.

I believe that life’s journey is about removing the blocks that prevent us from being in our hearts and removing the veil of illusion of who we think we are to discover our true Self.

The work that I present to you  is a result of what worked in awakening my heart and spirit which I have been so grateful to have experienced.

We all need guidance at one point in our lives. So if you find yourself in a place that you feel something needs to change or be different somehow, that is usually a call of your soul that it’s time to take the inward journey.

It’s the most rewarding journey you will ever take.  The work is simple but not easy, with the right guidance you can do it.

So if you are ready for change, transformation, and healing, I am here to help guide you to AWAKEN YOU!
