“Traditional techniques and philosophies have been used for thousands of years to improve our health and life and can really ramp up our return to wholeness, balance and well-being. It’s amazing how this can happen with just a few small shifts in our daily routine."

–Sheila Ritterbush


I use a holistic approach, which means that I look at how all areas of life affect happiness and well-being. Does stress at a clients work or in a relationship cause them to feel over-whelmed and anxious? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent them from exercising or starting that new project? Does their to-do list keep them from seeing friends and having fun? As a client and I work together, they find the purpose, values, lifestyle and inner wisdom they need to step away from stuck-ness and step into their higher soul-wisdom and inner healing.

I help clients feel and be their best by shifting into self-acceptance and love, reducing stress, moving in ways that inspire them, increasing sleep, maximizing energy, refreshing their goals and path and checking in with their values, talents and purpose. As we work together they develop a deeper understanding of the choices that work best for them and are able to implement lasting changes that improve their energy, balance, health, well-being and over-all life.

MEDITATION Classes and support

This practice helps those with stress, insomnia, high blood pressure and other wellness issues. It improves concentration, memory and creativity and it takes you deep inside to your true self, to who you really are, what you really want and what your purpose in life really is. This understanding will bring you to a place of ultimate fulfillment and happiness.


Ayurveda is a 5000 year old system of health and wellness that focuses on creating and maintaining balance. We can learn to recognize when we have stepped out of balance by noticing how we feel and how we are interacting with the world. Then we can use the simple tools of this practice to quickly step back in. Living in balance allows us to be at our best every day and helps us avoid some of the common conditions, illnesses and signs of aging that plague our culture.


My classes are for everyone at any skill level. I offer variations to the poses so everyone is comfortable and supported no matter their experience level. I love introducing Yoga to people who think they can't do Yoga and having them leave with a new-found love for their bodies and a renewed connection between their body, mind and spirit.
