“The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature. “  Joseph Campbell pretty much sums up what the ultimate goal of practicing Yoga is for me:  To align and integrate my body, mind, soul, and dharma with my actions, words, and energy so that I can live the path of service in joy.

 

As a teacher, I see my deepest role as a holder of sacred space for my students to see themselves and their magnificence more clearly.  To assist them in grounding into their bones, and learning how to anchor their spirit and mind through breath.  My joy is to weave magic with my words, body, intention, and the collective energy of others.

 

Yoga has been the gateway to the path of self-discovery and integration of all my parts - seen and unseen. Each time I step on my mat, the sound “h(om)e” reverberates beneath my feet. I see my movement as a prayer – an offering of gratitude.  A bowing down to all that I do not know, and to all of the teachings left to learn.  On and on we go…

Since becoming certified as a yoga teacher in 2008, I’ve taken countless workshops, yoga teacher trainings, and have been exposed to and influenced by a diversity of teachers and styles.  Among my influences are: Baptiste, Ashtanga, Yin, Prana Flow, Anusara, Kripalu, and Sri Vidya Tantra.  

 

My experience and understanding of Thai Massage, Ayurveda, chakras, and the energy highways in the body also heavily influences my approach.  Yoga is a powerful gateway to personal evolution and discovery.  My studies in Jungian Psychology and Life Coaching, including Landmark Education, Women's Studies, and a career in Environmental Conservation are also woven into the fabric of my teaching and life philosophy.   

 

As a teacher, and leader of this community, my intention is to use the practice of yoga, in its many forms, to create a container into which you can expand your awareness, anchor your dreams into reality, open up your communication with the Earth and your own body, and co-create a world that we all want to live in.
