Rita’s 10+ years of experience as a yoga instructor has humbly given her the understanding that we are all healing from something. She is a co-creator of sacred spaces and experiences. She uses her intuitive wisdom to support folks in accessing an embodied experience of love, acceptance, and understanding. She is an Somatic Experiencing (SE™) practitioner, and continues to advance her education in that realm. A restorative somatic session is grounded in choice, sensitive to trauma in the body and founded on curiosity and compassion so that we can live more resourced and connected to our inner and outer supports. Rita is a trauma and polyvagal-informed yoga teacher and approaches yoga through these teachings blending SE® with yoga to support nervous system responsiveness and resilience.
