at Work


of Prana

I help people navigate processes of life transformation. This may look like a having career change, starting a company, moving to a new country or ending a relationship. In fact, most people come to me to work on those exact areas. The best way to learn how to work together is to talk. Please send me an email, a text, or schedule a call below.


My work is about guiding people to find their way back home. My approach integrates healing modalities like breathwork with transformational coaching. This way we can work with the body, our energy, and our mind.

The breath is the main instrument in my work as it’s central across Yoga, Meditation, and Energy work. I rely both on science and intuition and my training is both modern and traditional.
