Yoga Tune Up® Certification Training
I completed my Master’s degree at University of Southern California and am a registered and licensed Occupational Therapist. During graduate school, in which I was learning how to empower people in the healing process of their minds and bodies, I found my own body was getting out of alignment. I was experiencing pain from repeating the same posture when studying and driving, which involved sitting, sitting and more sitting in the same position throughout the day! I stumbled upon a Yoga Tune Up® class after getting a random Group-on for a local yoga studio and fell in love with the practice. I found that Yoga Tune Up® greatly aligns with the concepts of occupational therapy by focusing on finding the optimal function in one’s own body in order to participate in our meaningful life activities. I am excited to have the opportunity to incorporate Yoga Tune Up® knowledge with occupational therapy frames of reference to work with people of varying abilities along the spectrum of health in order for people to lead healthier and happier lives!
