“I am a Leo. I create.
I am choosing succulence:
A succulent is self-sustaining
and it self-nourishes.
Blossoms and lavender. Mountain tops and perspective. Sunflowers and wild laughter. Poets and paint. Exploring and brave adventures. Digging in dirt. Looking for hope, lost in a good book. I am the creator of my own experience. You will find me outside. Deep in the woods…in a stream……on a cliff…in the sunshine…under a rainbow…under the starz…lounging in grass, I stay rooted in the earth. This allows me to be dedicated to my desire, to create a sacred space to connect our minds, with our bodies, thru whole-hearted yoga and earth based Ayurvedic practices”.
Embodying the spiritual heart of yoga, bringing positive energy and motion to community, providing a space for beauty and poetry to be shared, and combining science and art, teaching the earth and the sky, to touch all living things at the heart center compassionately.
” As the lotus flower comes into bloom, it receives the touch of divine light.”
Beginning in 2007, I have and continue to teach and train in Yoga, Ayurveda, and Native Healing Traditions, accumulating over 5000 hours of work and study in group, private lesson, and self study. I am certified to teach Yoga through YogahOMe’s 200 hour teacher training program. I received my BBA from UC in 2006 and worked in Account Management for several years. I also apprenticed through Gary Matthews for many years and learned the art of the Shamanic Healing and Breathwork tradition. I help others by bringing balance into their lives, in whatever way is needed, whether it be of body, mind, or spirit. This is part of an Ayurvedic lifestyle approach where the whole person is taken into account and working with the elements through yoga postures, breath, nutrition, gems, tone, or other, a harmonious lifestyle becomes clearer and attainable! I enjoy facilitating private Yoga and Ayurveda lessons, Retreats, Drum Journeys, and Art classes. I have also enjoyed being a Preceptor this past year to Carrie, one of the highlights of my career!
