Our featured guest today is Owner, Mindful Art Facilitator and Trainer at Mindful Creative Muse.
She has always had a strong interest in cultivating awareness and creative self-expression through art and movement. In 2010, after being diagnosed and treated for cancer, her exploration deepened with Restorative Yoga, Reiki and SoulCollage® (an intuitive-based expressive arts collage and journaling process developed by Art Therapist, Seena Frost).
She has been a professional artist since 2004 and began teaching in 2006. She is a certified Yoga Teacher in a variety of styles (including Restorative Yoga, Somatic Expressive Therapy, Trauma-sensitive Yoga, Expressive Arts and Yoga, Mindfulness Meditation, and Yoga Nidra).
Her current teachings are infused with creative expressive art explorations, calming guided visualizations, and breathing techniques, poetic language, and mindfulness exercises to help you explore your own experience and felt sense. She offers a trauma-sensitive approach that can help calm the central nervous system, enhance self-awareness and self-regulation, and empower students to reclaim their voice creatively.
In Jan 2014, she participated in a one-month artist residency in the Himalayas in India and was deeply moved by the positive impacts this had on women and children in the slums and villages of Northern India. For one year in Mar 2014, she lived and volunteered at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health(one of the leading yoga retreat centers in the United States), and offered Art and Yoga based workshops to peers and staff on the FLOW schedule, and assisted Restorative Yoga Retreats there annually.
She has taught at a variety of art and yoga studios, art galleries, community centers, adult education centers, and retreat centers worldwide (including Colorado, Southwestern United States, and Spain).
She believes these simple and compassionate art activities give us permission to express ourselves authentically and without judgment.
