About this project



Hi friends! 

     I am so grateful to have the opportunity to learn and grow in my life and in the business that I created to help others in need. Yoga for Emotional Support (Y4ES) came about because of my personal journey from having a daughter with substance disorder (the disease of addiction) and all of the stress, stigma and high emotional states that comes from that disease. My life was in turmoil as I watched her struggle. I would go to parent support groups and everyone was sharing their stories of hurt and pain as they tried to manage their loved ones disease.

     People in the group would ask "What are you doing to take care of you?" and there was no real solid suggestion. I realized that there was a great need to help others, in any emotionally stressful situation, learn self-care and relaxation techniques so they could find serenity in their lives and thrive!

As a Yoga teacher I know the importance of the mind-body connection and how movement and breathing along with many other self-soothing modalities can help others with many emotionally challenging situations: chronic pain, stress, loss and grief, anxiety, depression, trauma and more. I have spent hundreds of hours developing and teaching the Y4ES (Yoga for Emotional Support) classes. Additional Training in the Yoga Therapy field will help me to increase my knowledge to bring more care to many. As a certified TYT (Teacher of Yoga Therapy) I will have the credentials needed to pursue my dreams and offer the best in emotional support that I can.

Risks & Challenges



Since I am a one woman show right now, the risks I face are losing momentum or doubting myself or giving up which will NOT happen. I am an entrepreneur and have always loved creating my own businesses and seeing them through. In the 90's I created "Lifestyle Fitness personal Training" and I went to people's homes to designed fitness programs and help with their weight loss and fitness goals. In 2002 I created "Workout at Work" and brought fitness to the workplace where I taught aerobics, Zumba, and Yoga. In 2009 I took Core Strength Vinyasa Training with Sadie Nardini and created my own brand name "FLY! Vinyasa Yoga". In 2010 I started teaching yoga at a shared Studio place called GEM Studios. In 2012 I opened and co-own Liberty Yoga where I currently teach FLY! Vinyasa and Y4ES classes. When I see something that is needed and that I have a passion for there is nothing stopping me. I am grateful for the opportunity and drive I have to be able to carry my dream forward. I foresee a future where I have written a book and am traveling across the country to share Y4ES with many more people and I will have trained hundreds and thousands of people to be Y4ES Teachers. I thank you for any contribution you can offer me. Lots of Love to you!
