yoga

i am a yoga enthusiast, dancer, and transpersonal psychologist and believe that my life’s work is to share my passion for movement as a potent catalyst for transformation. i humbly arrived at my yoga practice in 1994 after sustaining severe injuries in a car accident. the accident awakened me from a time of great suffering, having lost my mother to suicide at age 16. it was the inception of my spiritual journey with my body as my guidepost, transforming my inner landscape from fearful self-loathing to compassionate curiosity. after six years of self-study and only two classes in a public studio setting, i knew that i had found my calling to teach, empowering others to liberate themselves through the body.

i am a 200-hour registered yoga teacher and received my training under the tutelage of yogarupa rod stryker, founder of parayoga. my teaching style is reflective of my 25-year immersion in the traditions of parayoga, iyengar, vinyasa, and kundalini; the intuitive nature of conscious dance; and the profound offerings of buddhist meditation. all that i ask when you come to my class is to be where you are in your practice and with yourself, and to bring an open and receptive heart. i am humbled and honored by the opportunity to hold space for you.

bhavana in motion: the practice

“with eyes let us see what is good.
with steady limbs, with bodies, praising, let us enjoy the life allotted by the gods.
what is, is pure being; what shines, is pure consciousness; what is dear, is bliss.”

~ bhavana upanishad

the sanskrit word bhavana means “to call into existence through deep connection to feeling and experience”. bhavana in motion™: the practice is a tapestry of three principal elements ~ tantra yoga, conscious dance, and creative expression, interwoven with shamanic ritual, meditation, breath, and the whisperings of deep silence. each experience is unique, anchoring into a theme and sequence of elements that change shape each time we practice. we learn to trust our bodies’ organic wisdom and feel our way into what is possible when the rhythms of our bodies and minds are in alignment with our hearts’ desire, the clarity of truth, and the earth that nourishes us. we then explore how we can take this practice into life. some basic yoga experience is helpful; no dance or meditation experience is required.
