About My Practice

A Life of Balance, Breathwork and Looking within

The foundation of my practice combines the physical with a somatic or observing the body from within approach, inner emotional and spiritual journey. By integrating body, breath, movement and meditative awareness, I strive to promote an understanding of emotions, really feeling my emotions and how to detox them using the breath and trauma release.  I have a lot of deeply held emotions as well as traumas and have gone through a lot of release through my yoga and meditation practices, taking a “less is more” approach allows my body, mind and life to be softer and less tense. Helping me to stay more present in the breath and life around me and this is why I choose release work, breathwork, meditation and yoga asana as my practices.

My Mantra

To Empower …To Embody …To Energize

Over the last 28 years I have been studying the fascia system through my personal yoga practice, trauma release and emotional release through breathwork and I’ve studied many forms of yoga that I  love to share from Vinyasa, Iyengar, Ashtanga, Yin/Restorative to name a few.  I have been teaching for 16 years and use this knowledge  to weave into a class that is energetic, grounding and healing.  My dharma is for you to walk away with knowledge that will empower you in your own yoga practice and life.

My inspiration comes from teachers like Dharma Mittra, Rod Stryker, Noah Maze, BKS Iyengar, Richard & Mary Freeman, Pattabhi Jois, Thomas Meyers, Pauli Zink, Sarah Powers and SN Goenka (Vipassana Meditation) to name a few. This knowledge is powerful, unique and I strive to pass on this inspiration with methods that are clear and safe.  I have been studying/teaching Transformational Breathwork for 6 years and I have developed a style that pulls inspiration from many different breathwork and yoga practices. I love showing this gift of ease in the breath system to everyone. I love myself by enjoying the benefits of meditation and self practice. I hope this love is passed on so people can live with more peace, harmony, awareness and joy, feeling less suffering.

I offer teacher trainings, workshops, retreats and personalized service through mentor programs and transformation through breathwork.


I hope to see you soon.





“What a Transformational weekend. Rusty’s concepts and techniques are simply executed, yet mind blowing. The time went so quickly as Rusty was so enthusiastic and engaging. The course was perfect for me as it gave me the reset I needed and the tools to keep myself on track.”
