The thing about yoga, is it can change us. Through breathing, settling, grounding, moving, flowing, we slowly re-align ourselves physically, mentally, emotionally, and energetically. Sometimes it's uncomfortable - these buried thoughts, feelings, and emotions that start to surface. Sometimes we feel down right crazy like "why is this happening now?" Sometimes we abandon our yoga… Continue reading Authentic Living
In this final yoga video of our six part series, we focus on relaxation. Sivasana is the body's opportunity to rest and integrate the benefits of your yoga practice. It is suggested to do a minimum of 5 minutes of stillness, but if you have time for more even better! Sivasana translates into english as… Continue reading Yoga Video 6: Final Relaxation
This is the fifth video of the asana-collection. The sixth (and final) video covers sivasana (a full body relaxation).

I describe the breath as the thread… Continue reading Ride The Wave of Breath…
In my 20 years of yoga experience, I still do not consider myself an expert. There is always so much to learn and explore, and the yoga world seems to be forever evolving through different styles and trends. So why do I teach gentle yoga? I came to yoga in 1997. I was 17 years… Continue reading Unwavering Gentleness
Testing Testing! My first YouTube Video.
