I teach both traditional meditation and a faster breath led “meditation for people who can’t meditate.” I’ve been teaching internationally over a decade -- topics related to meditation, spirituality and human’s quest for happiness. My meditations focus on how to immediately reduce stress, increase your focus and overall physical and mental well being. Current coursework I offers includes training trainers – how to teach staff the basics of teaching short meditation classes in work or wellness settings.



Increase your conditioning and your athletic performance, while shortening your recovery time Training and exercises designed for both for beginners and high-end athletes. I specializes in teaching breath work for combat sports. 



Want to develop your programming that includes mindfulness, promote happiness, productivity and cutting edge approach to wellness? I have experience in both academic and tourism settings and can consult with your group about anything from from boosting the endurance and mental resilience of your sports team to developing a virtual stretch program your employees can do at their desks.
