My journey into the wellness field started about 10 years ago by chance (or not, depending on how you see it.) I was completely unhappy in my job, I hold a master’s degree in European Political Affairs and I was working in the nonprofit sector. I was good at my job, but I was not excited to go to work and I felt like I was on the wrong track. Around the same time, a friend introduced me to Reiki and that experience profoundly changed my belief system surrounding health and healing. From that moment on, I was drawn into the healing arts field and soon I applied to Mueller College of Holistic Studies to further my understanding of the human body, and mind. I graduated in 2010 with a degree in holistic health and massage therapy. I have been working in the field ever since and not once have I regretted taking the leap. I am now taking another leap, one that feels equally good and exhilarating. Urban Light Sanctuary has been a beautiful dream in the back of my mind ever since I started massage school, and now it is reality. Urban Light Sanctuary is very much a labor of LOVE for both Zara and I. My heart felt wish for ULS is that we touch our clients with the same love and sense of purpose that I feel for my family and my life.
Healing has always been powerful and fascinating to me. What drives my passion to share it with others, is that I have experienced it within my own body and life and seen many positive changes. We are all different, we are all individual and need our own set of tools that work for our own unique experience of life.
Many years ago, I knew I would one day open a wellness center in San Diego. Urban Light Sanctuary LLC. and Urban Light Mobile Wellness are the incarnation of that dream. It is with great love and joy that Johanna and I bring Wellness to the masses. Our wish is to inspire people to take care of themselves daily by making preventative holistic care more accessible and more mobile.
Here is a brief overview of my training. In 2004, I graduated from San Diego State University with my Bachelors of Arts in Dance. This study took me on a deep exploration within my body, mind and spirit. In 2008, I attended Mueller College for Massage Therapy, this program gave me tools to help others clear blockages through healing touch and intuition. I began working as a LMT in 2010 at San Diego Center for Health. In 2013, I reconnected with yoga once again creating a shift in my life, and bringing my entrepreneurial spirit to life. In 2014, I completed the Mastery of Life Teacher Training. This 200 hour yoga certification program focused on the healing power of yoga.
