Recovery Wellness Coach & Yoga Teacher
My mission is to live a life aligned with my Higher Self, go beyond limitations, respect boundaries, and be reliable to myself and others with an open heart, integrity, non-judgment, and generosity.
I was caught in a world of addiction and suffering and didn’t know what to do. As I was overdosing in the back of an ambulance, the overwelling thought of “I do not know how to live” premeditated my entire being. It was and is a surrender that I listened to and acted upon. Previously, I had been in two hospital recovery treatment centers and felt there was more to living life than just the removal of a substance. I was guided to a holistic recovery center. The experience taught me a new way to recover by looking at all aspects of my life and make changes that were not easy but necessary.
From the time at the center and as part of the follow-up, I decided to study spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical development to connect the mind, body, and heart to become whole. As a result, I had a spiritual awakening, and now I share with others how they can find their own path to discover their life’s journey.
Gene has a confident yet genuinely caring presence, and I felt at ease with him when I started to discuss the areas I was looking for help with.
I tried doing some meditation, and it had always seemed elusive for me. Meditations within Yoga are multifaceted. One can do the simplest forms, such as breath awareness or simple mantra, or explore more elaborate meditations with a specific breath, mantra, and mudra that all work together to balance different aspects of the mind and body. When practiced for 40–120 days, the result is pure magic.
