Hello, and thank you, I am so glad you have come to visit the world of Balance and Breathe.

Addiction and stress damage mind, body, emotions and soul.

Yoga is a way of life that soothes mind, body, emotions and soul.

It makes sense then, doesn’t it, that Yoga would have the power to help recovery from both addiction and stress.

I have experienced both, and have experienced the power of Yoga for healing.  It is now my greatest joy and passion to share this power with anyone else who is in need of release from addiction and stress.

If you are battling the demons that lead you into addiction, that keep you stressed and anxious, unable to sleep, to relax, to feel good about yourself, to let go of the past, I am here for you.

There are a LOT of resources on this website, so here I will highlight some key articles and items of interest for you to start.
