BREATHE WITH AWARENESS - MOVE WITH INTENTION YOGA
Since 2003, I have supported over 2000 families through early pregnancy, new parenthood, and wellness with expert prenatal and postpartum yoga and bodywork, childbirth education, and baby massage instruction. This is my life's work.
My own Journey and Hobbies...
Originally from Belgium, I was recruited as a French teacher while still in College and moved to Louisiana in 1993. It was exciting, yet stressful, and yoga became my tool of choice to maintain a sense of peace. With my teacher's support, I became a yoga teacher soon after as well as a massage therapist.
My passion for working with couples through the childbearing year started in 2000 when one of my 2 older sisters had a difficult pregnancy and birth back in Belgium. It prompted me to pursue specializations in prenatal and postpartum yoga and bodywork care and led me to the path I am still on today.
When I am not teaching, you can find me on local nature trails, at the gym, swimming laps at an outside pool, hanging out with my "Class of 2019 I can't believe he's now a nearly adult" son, watching a romantic movie, reading a great book, or having fun on the dance floor and hanging out with my girlfriends.

"I really enjoyed your classes. I felt strong and empowered during our practice and very refreshed and energized afterward. My good mood lasted me all day. I appreciate all of the resources you have provided and the material you have recommended. I'm planning a natural birth at the Birth and Women's Center, so I've been preparing for many months- through classes, books, exercises, and relaxation techniques. It feels like everything is coming together and leading me exactly where I need to be.
