The Journey Begins

Not too long ago my amazing husband took me out to coffee to dream together. I was looking forward to completing my Holy Yoga instructor certification in the following month and uncertain what the next step might be. At that coffee date we began to discuss the tools I’ve collected over the years as well as what makes me come alive. There, the idea for Blue Thistles was born.

We began to discuss how I could come alongside people, helping them become more whole, healthy, and plugged in to the life God has given us here on earth. We’re all different, which means various needs requiring a variety of approaches. As time goes on, our desire is to develop multiple services under the Blue Thistles banner of which clients can take advantage, such as:

  • Holy Yoga instruction, both group classes and private,
  • One-on-one coaching,
  • Writing, and eventually,
  • Group facilitation.

Thank you for joining me on the journey. I’m glad you’re here.
