Hi Im a yoga instructor and Zero Balancing therapist. I love learning how to feel healthy and vital.
I love to cook for people, I used to work as a caterer, and miss the challenge of preparing nutritious whole foods meals for people with various food needs. So I love having guests stay that I can cook for :)
My garden is also of great importance... while our current garden is quite small, it gives me hours of joy to watch the green beans grow, and know that I will always have something fresh to add to dinner.
