About Judy – Sound Healer & Yoga Teacher
Judy is a licensed, certified practitioner in Vibrational Sound Therapy. She is passionate about providing deep relaxation and healing for her clients through the use of many healing instruments such as Himalayan Singing Bowls, Crystal Singing Bowls, Chimes, Native Drums and others. She uses these instruments on and off the body to invoke deep relaxation and to encourage the clients own natural healing processes. Judy also offers sound baths for yoga classes and other groups as a way to enhance or deepen meditation practices.
Judy came to yoga in 1999, where she was introduced to the peace and grounding that is achieved with practice. She began her studies about the basics of Hatha Yoga and Chakra Theory with Anodea Judith at Kripalu in 2000, and has since spent many years enriching her knowledge of healing energies and physical movement.
After obtaining her RYT 200 Certification, she has focused on developing intentional, healing practices for her students along a few central themes:
Yoga is for everyone – classes have included students from all ages (her youngest being 7 and her oldest being 70), and all body types. Her introductory practices are meant to bring a sense of confidence and self-awareness to her students, no matter what they bring to the mat.
Yoga for life changes – targeted classes for adolescents, women passing through menopause, and seniors provide thoughtful sequences for various life stages, and are meant to provide personal insights to each student in whichever challenges they face.
Yoga for healing – Judy’s greatest desire is to help students recognize the body’s amazing ability to heal itself with internal dialog and the compassion and belief that can come through a practice of emotional and physical alignment. Judy has overcome a history of trauma and has spent many years applying yoga, movement, and energy therapies in support of her own journey to health. Driven to help others who face similar histories, she focuses on providing and holding sacred spaces for anyone who seeks to befriend their own body and develop a personal dialogue for healing.
