Bonnie initially took up a yoga practice 20+ years ago to complement her active outdoor pursuits in the backcountry of Colorado. After relocating to McCall, Idaho her practice became the focal point of her fitness as well as her personal and spiritual development. In 2008, she followed her heart, enrolling in and completing her RYT200 Yoga Teacher Training at Shanti. In the midst of this training, Bonnie received her first Thai treatment. She knew immediately that she had uncovered the key to her work in the world.
In 2010, Bonnie completed her advanced training and certification in the Northern style of Chang Mai, Asokananda lineage at Ritam Healing Arts. In 2018, she became a Level II Reiki practitioner enveloping her sessions and clients with this beautiful energy work. Bonnie is currently expanding her studies in Ayurveda at the Zen Spot Institute.
