About Soma + ELDOATM
Movement has always been an important part of my life
As a classically-trained ballet dancer for 15 years, I performed professionally with the New York Dance Theatre under the artistic direction of NYC Ballet’s Frank Ohman. My love of movement next found expression in a serious Ashtanga yoga practice, inspiring me to complete two Ashtanga Yoga teacher trainings with Tim Miller and travel twice to study at Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute in Mysore, India.
In 2011, after sustaining a spinal injury that left me unable to sit, stand or walk, I underwent major surgery. As I sought to return to an active lifestyle and the mothering of two young boys, I discovered the powerful tool of Soma exercise. Inspired by my own recovery, I seek to share my knowledge and experience with others who have had an injury, undergone surgery, or are just wishing to return to the activities they love.
Striving for the best quality of motion for my clients
Today, I gratefully enjoy an active life in the Eastern Sierra, backpacking, rock climbing and cross-country skiing. My goal with Peak Soma Training is to impart the best quality of motion possible to each client, providing knowledge they can take away with them. As my teacher, Guy Voyer, D.O., reminds his patients and students, “You are your own best therapist.”
I’m a Soma Trainer
I have studied directly with Guy Voyer, D.O., participating in the Soma Training program since 2013. I am a certified Soma, ELDOA™ and Myofascial Trainer with a passion for helping people return to the activities they love or find ease of movement in their everyday life.
As a Soma Trainer, I bring a variety of effective techniques and a perspective that is both global and individualized. As Guy Voyer, D.O., teaches, there is no single recipe for everyone. My clients enjoy individualized attention even in small group settings, and notice immediate results from Peak Soma Training classes and programs. Click here to read their comments.
Why I do what I do

“I am new to ELDOA, and did not know what to expect. After the fourth class, the pain I experience in my hips at night in bed had gone away. Doing ELDOA has made me more aware of my posture, balance, and tension in my body. I enjoy the technique and how well it makes me feel after class. I have been recommending it to everyone.”
