Holistic Nursing approaches the patient, and self, from a whole-person perspective. This incorporates physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and environmental health.
Yoga involves conscious breath, physical postures, movement, and stillness. These elements assist with tapping into our inner beauty and strength.
Self care includes tending to our own health on a holistic level while engaging in self-reflection. This assists in letting go of what no longer serves us.
I began my healthcare journey as a Nursing student in 2008, and quickly became fascinated by the mind-body connection while taking my first yoga classes during this time. I became a Registered Nurse in 2010, and this fascination expanded as I transitioned into Hospice Nursing in 2014. In serving as a Hospice nurse, I learned the power of being truly present and developed a deep love for holistic-based care. During this time, I began to heal my unresolved grief by delving deeper into yoga, journaling, trusting my higher power, and exploring Reiki. In an act of self-care, I took a leap of faith and moved to Western North Carolina in 2016. I continued to serve as a Registered Nurse in various areas and devoted more time to my yoga practice, becoming a Registered Yoga Teacher in 2017. I obtained my Buddhi Certification in 2019. As an instructor, I love to incorporate the spiraling energy of Buddhi into my Vinyasa Flow practices. I view yoga as powerful tool to go beyond our minds and know that we are so much more than the stories we tell ourselves. As an experienced healthcare provider of nine years, I have become increasingly passionate about self-care and strongly feel that it is the future of healthcare. I believe we have the power to heal ourselves be going inward, observing, unlearning, and rewriting our stories. My hope is to share my journey and inspire others to do the same.
