About Me

I practice and teach yoga and spiritual healing (Reiki, as well as other modalities. I have been on my spiritual path for four years and traveling for the past two, studying with healers and shaman and sharing what I have learned. My eventual plan is to set up a sustainable community/healing center of my own, but at this point I'm more focused on travel and study... and whatever wild adventure presents itself!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have couchsurfed in Mexico, Guatemala, California, and England and met some awesome people along the way! Just had one couch surfer at my home in Guatemala and she was great. I don't settle down often or for long, but when I am settled I like to have an open space for people. I use couchsurfing to make connections wherever I go and of course find comfy couches to rest myself :).


Spiritual growth and natural healing: Yoga, medititation, energy healing (Reiki, IET, Sekhem), shamanism, plant medicines, massage, crystal healing, music, herbalism, hiking, nature exploring.

Music, Movies, and Books

Some favorites there, but I like most kinds of artful music and also sound healing and meditation frequencies.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I traveled to the Grand Canyon, Sedona, San Francisco, and the Rainbow Gathering in Washington State a year and a half ago. Dropped out of college upon returning, completed training in yoga and Reiki, and flew to Mexico without a clue and then spent 7 (now 12) months living in Guatemala studying with healers and shaman, over to Europe with my partner for the summer, then a ridiculous winter in India... And back to the USA! Well that's my life journey. It's one thing continuing to evolve and grow. :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach Kundalini or vinyasa yoga and Reiki. I am always more than happy to share Reiki and energy work, and if you like we can jump start the day with some powerful yoga. I'd love to learn other forms of healing, other languages, and whatever you have to share.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Pure love energy, help in the kitchen or whatever your needs are in the moment, perhaps ceremonial cacao from Guatemala. :)
