About Me

Growing up in a rural town of Rhode Island, I spent a lot of time outdoors, in nature. Whether I was walking in the woods or sitting by the water, nature always made me feel better.  I would sit and contemplate life.  I could go within and be guided on how to solve my life's problems.  Oftentimes as adults, we become so busy, we sometimes lose this ability to go within.  I want to offer practices to those that are trying to find that inner Self, so they can heal from within, with services that assist the body in removing disrupted energy and allow the body to bring itself back to health. 

 

I have been a teacher for many years.  I began my career teaching adults and adolescents having mild to severe disabilities within both academic and residential settings.  I then taught in the public schools for the past 25 years, in addition to a basic yoga class for adults.  Through my experience, I have learned that both children and adults can learn to slow down, breathe, and go within, soothing themselves and calming anxiety.  My hope is that both children and adults will find relaxation and well-being from my services at Inner Sanctuary RI.
