Hi! Thank you for stopping by! Here is a little bit about me!
I am a registered 240 hour yoga teacher, a Licensed Massage Therapist, and a Certified Reiki Master. I love all things holistic healing! In my daily life I practice yoga, meditation, crystal healing, and I incorporate Essential Oils into my daily activities.
I grew up in Stillwater, MN out in the country, running around outside with bare feet, climbing trees, building forts, and helping my mom in the garden. I have loved being outside and connecting with nature for as long as I can remember. I feel most at home among the trees. I connect deeply to their grounding and calm energy (probably because I am usually quite the opposite of those things :)).
I graduated from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities with a Bachelors degree in Psychology. I currently live in Saint Paul, MN with my husband Ryan, and our Siberian Husky, Ruby. We love to travel and go an any adventures we can! We enjoy snowboarding, hiking, kayaking, paddle boarding, watching movies and playing games!
I eat a plant based diet, love Indian food, avocados and chocolate! I am a huge animal lover! One day I hope to own a home with land in the mountains with goats, chickens and lots of dogs!
I started Sapphire Healing because I have a passion for helping people. I began teaching at the age of 16 when I became a swim instructor. Since then I have taught in many different capacities. I was a Behavior Therapist, a camp counselor, a preschool teacher and a coach. When I began practicing yoga, I knew it was the start to something amazing in my life. I started practicing for purely physical reasons but I found myself coming back to my mat again and again for the mental clarity and the stress relief that I found. I gradually began to realize that teaching yoga was something I was desperate to do. I wanted to take my love and passion for yoga and share it with as many people as I could! I completed my 200 Hr Teacher Training in December of 2014 during a 2 week intensive program in Costa Rica.
Soon after I began teaching yoga and moved to San Diego, I found myself coming back to another healing field that I was repeatedly drawn to in the past: Massage! I found Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego, CA and I felt immediately at home and confident that this was the path I was meant to take. I find body and energy work to be an incredibly powerful tool to healing and living a healthier life.
Massage school was the beginning of the path that has led me to where I am now. In 2016, I began studying Reiki. I am now a Reiki Master and I am passionate about the power of Reiki healing. In 2018, I was drawn to Myofascial Release and trained with John Barnes to become certified in MFR 1, Unwinding, and MFR 2. This is a life changing technique that I strongly believe in and I am eager to share it with as many people as possible.
I am on a personal journey, diving deeper into my own spirituality. I am currently fascinated by Astrology, Human Design, Shamanism, Crystal Healing, and Breath Work. I am a seeker, and I want to learn and grow as much as I can in this lifetime. I learn so much from all my clients and I deeply value the relationships I am blessed to create in this practice.
Please reach out if you have any questions about anything! I would be honored to help you on your path to a healthier, happier, and more vibrant you!
