"May all beings everywhere be free and happy and may my thoughts, words and actions contribute in some way to that happiness and freedom for all."
As a yoga instructor and holistic health coach, Turi helps individuals develop strength, flexibility and balance in body and mind. She is especially drawn to the quieting practices of gentle yoga and meditation to reduce stress and tension in the body, find the quiet place behind the busy thinking mind, and calm and soothe the nervous system.
Peace, love and joy all come from within. If we want to see more of them in the world, we must actively cultivate them in ourselves. The ancient practices of yoga, backed by modern-day science, teach us how important self-care is to our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. It’s not always easy as it requires time, effort and commitment, but the rewards are worth it. Selfcare helps you to:
Show up fully for the people and events in your life.
Live your life with value, meaning and purpose.
Connect with yourself, your community and the world.
Turi is dedicated to practicing this herself and emphasizes that it’s a practice, not a perfect or a performance, and she’s human and messes up at times too. She is committed to walking with her clients and students, supporting and empowering them to be their best selves.
