I believe
that our energy

is not meant to stay the same. It is meant to flow & transform. Through cleansing, we are able to let go of old stories we are carrying in our body and aura, creating space and a vibrant connection with all of life. I created the Aura Toning method to help you guide the aura into alignment and flow from within, allowing stuck energy to naturally fall away.

My name is Rianne, and I am an healing artist and movement teacher from Long Island, NY. I can see how light moves like water around people and nature, which led me to create this modality to help people strengthen their auras. I bring a unique, mystical, and love-based lens to exercise, and am really passionate about giving people a practice that feels beautiful, cleansing and fun for our body, mind, and spirit. 

I’ve always been very

sensitive and connected to my spirituality, but spent a lot of my early years dulling it down in efforts to fit in, and later hiding behind toxic habits and numbing out.

I “floated away” of my body often to avoid the pain that i was in. I started to find healing in yoga practice- which had been a respite for me since I started yoga at age 3.  I found rapture especially when I would move from the deepest waters inside of me- which was often a blend of yoga, dance, and sensual feminine movement. I became fascinated by the ancient and sacredness of ceremony that calls your spirit back and that often centered around water and light 

This led me to get my somatic healing degree and study the waters of the body- how emotions connect to the physical, what causes them to be stagnant and how to clear them. I pursued 1000 hours of yoga teacher training from many lineages- from Prana Vinyasa, to Iyengar, alignment and therapeutic- so that I could confidently and safely care for each water body that walks into my class. Then I deepened my fascination and study in ancient dance, art, and water ceremony. I moved to Hawaii to listen to the water, and to birth this work of love that is now called Aura Toning into form.

I am still unfolding and uncovering my own inner resonance by deeply connecting to my life-force through movement, creativity and nature. Through dedicating myself to this journey, I have found that no matter how much confusion or sadness I came onto my mat with, I would always be guided back to the simplest truth- I am Love. We are Love.

Although deep down I always knew that I would create a movement class based on bringing us back to love, I began my career in yoga, and worked my way up to facilitating teacher training retreats and certifying yoga teachers internationally. I started practicing yoga when I was three years old, and was deeply spiritual for as long as I can remember. I spent my late teens and my twenties immersing myself in ancient healing practices, earning a Bachelor of Science in Somatic Healing, 800+ hours of advanced yoga certification, 7 years of shamanic healing apprenticeship, certifying yoga teachers and teaching retreats internationally, and spent most of my spare time in self-study.

I know this is truly the very beginning, and I want to name some of the teachers I’ve met along the way, that I have deep respect, love, and appreciation for. They include Deborah Hanekamp, Jonathan Hammond, Shiva Rea, Rodney Yee, Colleen Saidman Yee, who have simultaneously guided me and given me the opportunity to learn by doing.

I have yet to find something more authentic than water-work to restore clarity to our mind, body and aura. The more I work with bodies, the more I have gotten to see the powerful transformations that occur.

This integrated understanding that we are all water, that is so deeply felt that it can’t really be explained, will always be my North Star.

I truly believe

that movement, water, and light is the most authentic healing that is available to all of us.

I see life as a journey to ever-deepening truth of love.

Sharing this work is honestly the thing I love doing most. But I also love swimming in the Pacific Ocean, singing and dancing with my friends, creating art from nature, traveling, snuggling animals, and doing anything that makes me feel like I can fly.

is life, and our greatest teacher.

We are all water and light, and we are all so connected. Aura Toning is a place to feel this, to embody this, and to fall in love with being alive. I am so glad you’re here.
