Regardless of your current condition, the Colonel’s Fitness Program (CFP) accomplishes the mission because it is highly intense, targets all your muscle groups, requires little or no equipment, and burns a ton of calories. The CFP’s program is inspired by Marine Corps and other training techniques meant to build troops into tactical warrior-athletes, able to withstand any obstacles they may face. This means they must be proficient in all areas of fitness. They need to have the strength to lift heavy objects and the endurance to carry them long distances with little to no breaks, agility to navigate uneven terrain, power to jump and move quickly, speed to take them from one location to another as fast as possible, and core strength and balance to move efficiently and injury free. And when they arrive at their objective, they must then be able to close with and destroy the enemy. In the Colonel’s Fitness Program, we incorporate all these areas of fitness in a single session. Mimicking these types of scenarios will ensure you get the best workout possible.

Your Stellar Self

It is my purpose in life to help people discover and nourish their Inner Light, and to teach them how to heal themselves.
I have a life-long passion for helping people of all ages develop mind, body and spirit wellness. I do this through workshops, intuitive energy healing, and private yoga sessions designed to nourish all aspects of the individual.
In 2005, I began training in Reiki and became a Reiki Master in 2007, working with individual clients and as a volunteer for Reiki in Hospital programs.
Called to be a healer before then, in 2002, I earned a PhD in Developmental Psychology, focusing on the biopsychosocial factors that support healthy human development throughout the lifespan.
I began my yoga and meditation journey at age 11, after which time I practiced many different styles, on and off until 2004, when a friend introduced me to Bikram Yoga. I was a Bikram devotee until 2010, when I discovered vinyasa flow, a fluid style of yoga that I found both enjoyable and challenging. Wanting to share my love of yoga and meditation with others, I completed my 200-hour yoga teacher training in 2017.
In addition, I am a Certified Life Coach, and have also studied herbalism, medical intuition, and shamanism.
My energy healing and private yoga sessions are offered at Dream Yoga & Wellness Center 1485 Chain Bridge Road, Suite 104, McLean, VA.
