Yoga is more than poses. When we practice yoga, we learn that the poses we take are a technology of remembering who we are and what we are capable of with the support of The Most High. Yes, Divine energy is a part of the practice. Though at first glance it looks like the body is doing all the work, underneath it all is the Truth: We are being guided to higher realms of self with each breath and pose, not of our own accord, solely. The Spirit moves and therefore our will to do the same is made manifest. Let's move our bodies or sit together to explore and learn more about yoga and the practices that heal and bring us closer to ourselves.

The World Needs You
I’m so glad you’re here! I’ve been a passionate Yoga of Energy Flow Instructor, spiritual guide and teacher for years. Below I've taken some time to share with you briefly some of the things I learned along the way that might help you. Browse below to learn more about how to practice aligning more fully with all that you are, more of the time. And let me know what you may have interest in learning more about.
A Kriya Experience
Kundalini Yoga is an ancient yoga practice informed by yoga sets and meditations. These sets are comprised of many things in a specific sequence and time; these are called kriyas. In any given kriya you will find a focus on the breath, movement, eye gaze and even sound (mantra), for instance, for an established result. This allows the practitioner to work through psychic and muscular blocks and open to the more subtle energies of the body-mind and spirit. "Historical records indicate that Kundalini was a science of energy and spiritual philosophy before the physical practice was developed" (spiritrisingyoga.org).
Clearing space to be
Meditation can be many things, and it can look many ways. Together we will explore the breath in silence, activate sound or movement, even, depending on your desire/need. Meditation with me will allow you to find your inner guide, that still small voice that is often camouflaged by the noise of this time and within our environments. Give yourself a chance to break free. Book a meditation sessions to listen more deeply and find your inner calm and the peace that is available to you now.
Moving the Prana with the Breath
How we breathe is a direct reflection of how we live. Knowing various breath techniques can support you in all ways. When you are struggling to focus or needing more calm, for example, there are breath practices that can be done to take you to the state of being which you desire. It does not take long, but it does take a method. You have all you need for this. I will show you.
Thai Yoga Massage
Passive Stretching and Intuitive Guidance
There is much to say about this wonderful 1 1/2- 2 hour massage. How lovely it is to feel the benefits of yoga while relaxing to enjoy the movement as it happen to you, for you. This practice is an opportunity to see how we might, together, leverage the weight of our experience and physical bodies to address the energy that gets stuck to use a deeper awareness to move what we do not need along. For this I will address the zen lines in the body using my weight, hands, feet, forearms, elbows, and knees to consider your unique needs and dosha.
Flow for all ages and levels
Vinyasa yoga is a style of yoga by which you move from pose to pose with attention to the breath, allowing the practitioner to move with purpose. When we align the body and breath into it with intention we move with purpose, setting ourselves with the right energy to move towards that which we desire. To move with intention on the mat is to practice moving with purpose throughout your daily life.
