Aloha, I’m Pam


Helping You Thrive in Health and Life Through a Compassionate Teaching Style

Serving as a guide and facilitator in Clinical Somatic Education, my mission is to gently help clients build confidence, renew sense of self and reclaim personal empowerment by learning to move with more ease. I am skilled at safely adapting somatics and yoga for every client’s ability, from young athletes to people who have serious illness and chronic physical conditions. 

I’ve turned things around for numerous clients who believed they were “too tight,” “too old” or “too out of shape” to ever get better. Many of my clients were once concerned they would injure themselves or make things worse if they went to a regular gym or yoga class. However, through my gently paced, healing-based individualized sessions and somatic classes, they learned to consciously tap into how their bodies were meant to move and so can you.

I have personally experienced this progress and know first-hand what it’s like to heal mentally and physically after being in pain. Years of chronic injuries led me to my current profession, which involved intensive education and apprenticeship in Clinical Somatic Education and yoga therapy. Supporting and educating others toward better health has become my life’s calling and professional passion.
