Thank you so much for visiting my site! I am a Rolf Method Structural Integrator, Instructor/Developer of RolfYoga, K9 Trauma Specialist, Foodie-Creative. I have operated my own clinic for eight years in east-central Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and am delighted to share my work and my NEW offerings with you including the RolfYoga programs and Edibles by L' - both set to launch this spring. As we move into this new year, into our future, I bring to you an offering of Healing, of Hope, of Humanity, and of Humor.
I am a 2005 graduate from The Guild for Structural Integration based then in Boulder, CO, and received over 1,4oo hours of training with 580 hours in Integrative massage therapy. My instructors include Peter Melchior, Neil Powers, and Nilce Silva of Brazil. I’ve also completed an Intro course in Craniosacral Biodynamics with Stillpoint based in NYC and am currently in the certification process with The Barrel Institute for Visceral Manipulation. Aspen Meadows Aquatic Center is where I completed a Level 1 Watsu Practitioner training, and my yoga background is quite diverse. Tias Little has been my main teacher for two decades while I’ve also studied under Tim Miller, Richard Freeman, Angela Farmer, and other local directors dating back to 1993. Dr. Vasant Lad and Dr. David Frawley have been my educators in Ayurveda, and more recently Melanie Phillips of Vancouver, B.C. In addition roughly 75 hours of practical training in the Alexander Technique with Carolyn Johnston of Pittsburgh, PA.
The nutritional components of my education include macrobiotics with Paul Pitchford at the Heartwood Institute, Plant-Based foods with Dr. Gemma Newman of London UK, and Rich Roll, Ultra Athlete, Los Angeles.
My mother has been a pivotal person in my life, a professional baker and designer she's been my main teacher of all things culinary and beautiful. In meditation and training and in the energetic realm would include Gia Combs-Ramirez, Roshi Joan Halifax, Sandra Ingerman, Vipassana Meditation, and Heartfulness or Sahaj Marg a Raja Yoga Meditation System.
The healing arts is a lifelong journey, and path - one that I am honored and humbled to be on.
