BIOGRAPHY

Hayley is an integrative physical therapist & yoga teacher based in Southern California. She offers customized movement & manual therapy sessions, personal & professional consultation, and teaches small groups, classes & workshops.

With her dynamic approach to holistic health, Hayley offers accessible yet profound ways to integrate mindfulness, breath & body awareness and self care into daily life. Her unique blend of methods creates a fertile environment for growth & transformation. She is a very tactile practitioner, teaching with & encouraging receptive touch as a form of healing, conscious communication & creative expression.

Hayley engineers an environment where senses heighten & the body-breath-mind connection strengthens. Through tailored, focused cuing she strategically draws attention to chronic postural faults & movement patterns that predispose pain, injury and health decline. Linking mindful breathing with therapeutic movement encourages muscle balance & joint alignment as vitality increases. The subsequent psychological benefit that blossoms from amplified breath & body awareness leads to multifaceted improvement & organic lifestyle change.

Through her own evolving practice of mindfulness, breath, movement & self-care, Hayley taps into an ocean of insight to share. She roots herself in the beauty & wisdom of nature to guide her practice & her life.
