Welcome to Flowing Tree Yoga. I am a yoga therapist who specializes in helping people with chronic pain find hope and healing through the practice of yoga.
Through my own experiences managing chronic pain associated with a genetic connective tissue disorder, I have learned how easy it can become to allow pain to become your identity. The practice of yoga has allowed me to connect and identify with my deeper, true self that lies beyond the pain. The physical practice of movement through yoga postures has helped me to build balance between my flexibility and strength. Over time, this has contributed to decreased pain levels. Yoga has also helped to regulate my nervous system in order to better tolerate the fluctuations of the pain response. The mental practice of meditation has helped me understand that the pain is not who I am. As I connect with my true self, I have found a deepening sense of gratitude for all the ways my body remains able to serve me. It has helped me come to a sense of peace and acceptance with my unique design.
My deepest desire is to share these tools that have brought me so much peace and hope with others who are struggling with physical, emotional and spiritual pain. I hope you will download the free meditation and start practicing today. Join our online community of support. Read the blog, ask questions, share your journey.

There is hope and healing ahead. I know. I have been there, too.
