About Me


I have come now to India on a spiritual pilgrimage of sorts to cultivate devotion and deepen my practice of yoga.


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!


Breathe and smile, trust and surrender. All is One!

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 stayed with a wonderful family in Villahermosa Mexico and also in Guatemala City. It was great to get to know the culture and spend time with really nice people. I travelled for a bit in California and made some great connections through couchsurfing.


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 & Books

The Power of Now, Autobiography of a Yogi, The Daodejing, The Razor's Edge, The Dharma Bums just to name a few... anything that deals with mysticism, yoga, psychedelics, energy healing, transpersonal psychology, and religion is right up my alley.

Movies: Pi, The Matrix, Requiem for a Dream, American Beauty, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, etc.

I have a broad yet specific taste. I love dreamy sunshine music, but I also love electronic dance music and some good old noise rock. Top five: Beach House, of Montreal, Sonic Youth, Animal Collective, Boards of Canada

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.

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're willing to wake up early with me 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.
