“Think lightly of yourself and deeply of the world.”
This quote from the 16th century Japanese Buddhist philosopher, writer, and martial artist Miyamoto Musashi has always inspired me…

Pursuing mastery of our bodies through exercise is one of the most satisfying outlets we have. It is this expression that has fueled my lifelong love of martial arts — Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai being my favored forms.
I strive to teach mindfulness through movement and integrated massage. I am deeply passionate about unlocking a person’s ability to grow both physically and mentally by overcoming the challenges of physical training. By fostering a greater body awareness through the combination of intelligent programming and targeted tissue release you will have the confidence and knowledge to pursue your passions inside and outside the gym, while having knowledge to help remediate pain and tissue dysfunction as it occurs.
Focusing on functional movement patterns and resolving tissue dysfunction/pain through deep tissue massage paired with targeted strength training is a fascinating obsession that I have been studying for years.
I am a Licensed Massage Therapist and have earned specialized certifications with the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM); am a Functional Anatomy (FRC) Functional Range Conditioning Mobility Specialist; am certified in The Integrative Corrective Exercise Approach; am certified as a Precision Nutrition PN1 nutritional coach; as well as a certified Bioforce Conditioning Coach.
Additionally, I am a competitive Muay Thai, Mixed Martial Arts, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu athlete.
I am continuously enhancing my professional competencies across disciplines, cultures, research and training opportunities both here and abroad.
I specialize in deep tissue massage, one-on-one, semi-private, and group coaching.
If it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you…
