I'm a soul seeker on a quest to explore the connection between mind, body, and spirit. Having discovered yoga in 2000, I immediately became enchanted with the ease in my body and calmness and serenity in my mind. As I discovered my soul path, Yoga became my trusted companion.
I teach Yin Yoga which brings unique physical, energetic, and emotional releasing and clearing benefits. Poses are held for extended periods to lubricate joints and tissues, to practice mindfulness, and to cultivate chi flow in the body. It is often felt like a needle-less acupuncture session.
Yoga has helped me to explore my inner workings and has helped me wake up to see who I truly am. It's not always easy but it's real and I feel alive. I wish the same for you my friend.

“Smartphones are ruining our posture. And bad posture doesn’t just mean a stiff neck. It can hurt us in insidious psychological ways”- New York Times
“If we can train ourselves through meditation to be more open and more accepting toward the wild arc of our experience, we can become more settled and relaxed amid whatever life brings us” - Pema Chodron, How to Meditate
“Working with the mind and body to encourage the development of what’s wholesome - and the uprooting of what’s not - is central to every path of psychological and spiritual development…… Paradoxically, it takes time to become what we already are" - Rick Hanson, Buddha’s Brain

Nourishing the Seasonal Body for Winter
11th January 2020
Winter represents the most Yin aspect in Chinese Medicine. A time of stillness when the earth lies fallow with dark, cold, slow energy. We can feel excessive fear and lack of grounding. It's an opportune time to focus on replenishing our inward energy as it naturally re-establishes itself to prep for the outburst of new life in spring.
Join me for a 3- hour Yin Yoga workshop to harmonize the body, heart and mind for winter and set intention for the Season of Hibernation.
You will experience:
• Yin yoga to stimulate the physical organs of the body, especially the kidney + bladder, the organs related to winter.
• Guided pranayama & meditation.
• Restorative yoga to allow the body to metabolize the benefits of this deep practice.
This workshop is appropriate for all levels of experience. Please bring a journal as there will be an opportunity to set intentions and write as ideas and feelings may emerge during the Yin Yoga poses.
