As a yoga teacher, body awareness and compassion are her focus.

Holly believes that everyone’s story has value, and the diversity of our individual experience is essential to our collective evolution. Through the study of yoga, the chakra system, reiki, and writing, Holly has developed the fun and inspiring workshop Writing the Energetic Body and the meditation cd Journey through the Chakras.
