Yves's interests in the healing arts and the mind body relationship were sparked after several years of devoted Yoga study. The exploration of movement with breath, meditation, and wellness allowed for a discovery of self-love and satisfaction that had previously seemed beyond reach. With a desire to further understand natural healing and compassionate self-care Yves began studies in massage therapy and Traditional Chinese Medicine at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. As a licensed practitioner she employs modalities such as Thai Yoga massage, sports and rehabilitative bodywork therapy, and pre-natal bodywork. Shortly after becoming an LMT Yves began training to become a 200 hour registered yoga teacher.
Yves continues to explore the profound and infinite rewards of natural wellness through the practices of Yoga and meditation, mindful eating, marathon running, hiking, rock climbing and receiving massage and bodywork treatments. Yves favorite yoga practices are Yin and therapeutic Yoga, her preferred massage treatment is therapeutic deep tissue.
