There are so many ways to be a Human and within each life, we live multiple incarnations determined by our choices. To explain who I am by listing experiences, hardships or moments of joy only offers a distorted glimpse. We live. We make choices. We deal with consequences. We break, we grow, we forgive, we celebrate, we laugh. This is life. We all do it and it looks different for each of us. In the end, we all long for the same things: To be heard. To be seen. To belong. To love and be loved.
If I could add a dimension to your existence, it would be that you long to listen so that you desire to hear every single cell of your body through multiple portals of perception in every moment. I believe your body is an ear to the Universe and a map to a hidden reality, a gateway to intuition and that it is our job to release the imprints of our past from our tissues. I believe we are a species in a state of evolution, transforming into a psychic society. Integrity is no longer optional; align with your truth and honesty. I believe that our species’ survival depends on those willing to wade out into the unknown to imagine a future that has yet to exist and then ground that futuristic reality into now. I am a Mystic who appreciates science, yet my curiosity doesn’t end there. I’d rather challenge science than silence my intuition. I came here with an attention to detail and desire for perfection, which untamed could easily drive me nuts and when harnessed is a curious guide to radical new ideas and ways of BE-ing. I’m a rebellious provocateur. I speak things often left unsaid and have learned to be comfortable in discomfort. I love deeply and choose joy over suffering and recognize that there are times when a bout of suffering is the only way to that joy. The way I teach reflects all of this.
With roots in Canada, after 20 years of traveling and studying with respected teachers and a decade in the role of teacher, my home is in Venice, CA where I lead classes and new moon circles at Love Yoga Space. I have run over a dozen 200 hour yoga teacher trainings, a 300 hour YTT, Yoga Nidra trainings and retreats all over the globe. You can find me on Insight Timer, Elephant Journal, the Revealing the Diamond podcast and have been written up about on Well + Good about Yoga Nidra, New Moon Circles and breath to relieve stress. If you want to go a layer deeper, check out this, this, this, this and this. And of course, my website has all current trainings, retreats, public classes and monthly online Astro Nidras! I hope to meet you in person some day. I’m sure it will be magical.
