When yoga found me, I was an absolute mess. For 18 years I was in a complete fog of psychiatric drugs to control my symptoms of Bipolar Disorder, and for 4 years I was struggling daily with debilitating chronic pain from a back injury and two cervical spine surgeries. Simply put, I was lost, and yoga found me so that, in turn, I could find myself. In a very short time, I began to notice my physical pain was decreasing and becoming more manageable, and my mind and emotions were shifting for the better as well. I’m now in the best shape of my life, and have not taken any prescription drugs in years. Yoga truly saved me; not just as a physical practice, but as a complete and comprehensive science of mind, body, and spirit healing.
I have been fully immersed in teaching yoga and studying Ayurveda for many years now. The deeper I go into work on myself and with clients, the clearer it becomes that the true and permanent healing happens on a deeper energetic level, not just the superficial. I work as an Intuitive Calibrator to guide my clients in fully harnessing the power of their intuition in order to heal and become the greatest expressions of themselves. I offer marma therapy as well as Ayurvedic, meditative, and spiritual guidance. I have found that the combination of all these modalities bring about the most profound and long-lasting results.
I received my RYT 200 and RYT 300 hour trainings at the Sampoorna Yoga Ashram in Miramar Florida where we didn’t just learn how to teach yoga; we learned how to completely transform our lives in order to reach our sovereign self. It is said that “Yoga is a step by step process”. And step by step, through daily practice of Hatha Yoga, meditation, positive thinking, proper diet coupled with marma therapy and Ayurveda, I have transformed myself from a physically and emotionally broken and lost individual to a strong, confident, and effective woman. This transformational journey I have taken has not only benefited me and my family, but it is beneficial to each of my wonderful clients as I am all the more confident and prepared to assist them in their own journey toward their best selves.
My goal in this path is to show each of my clients that labels and diagnoses are not set in stone as Western medicine may try to have us believe. Anyone can achieve anything they put their mind to, and I strive for those I work with to truly feel empowered that my words and teachings don’t just come from some book or theory, but they come from direct experience. Yoga teaches us that we are all divine, and that the purpose of life is to realize that truth within. Yoga is not just a physical practice. Anything we do to improve ourselves is yoga, and with this in mind, there is no limit to what we can achieve.
Hi! I'm Spartakiss, the Collective Clearing Canine. I work with my mom, but I wouldn't really call it work because it's so much fun! She says that I'm an "Intuitive healer" and "Emotional Support Dog". I don't really know what that means, but I love teaching and traveling with her everywhere she goes. She says I'm not HER dog; I'm the world's dog, and we're just on a healing mission together, learning and teaching. On my mom's path of healing, she learned from direct experience how beneficial animals truly are. She says she saw something special in me and knew that I was meant to heal so many besides her. It's so much fun to go around just being in love with everyone I meet and letting them love me back! My mom and my late sister, Skylar rescued me from a junk yard when I was just a baby, and it has been such a beautiful and magical journey ever since. She always says, "Skylar came to learn. Sparta came to teach..." I'm really excited to meet you. Making new forever friends is my favorite thing to do! Also, I love running on the beach, hiking, and finding sticks...Oh, sticks are my favorite!
