"Our yoga practice offers us the opportunity to be in relationship with our soul. Our relationship with nature is born of the cycles of sun, moon and earth. Aligning our practice to the rhythms of sun, moon and earth is a way to achieve a much deeper, richer balance and harmony in life. Our relationship to sun, moon and earth is lifelong and perpetually alive with nourishment and wisdom unique to each of us. In our time together, we'll learn some of the simple ways to implement the monthly rhythm of the moon in our yoga practice and our lives."

Mother, daughter, sister, friend, auntie, student, teacher ~ but those are just labels of relationship. Really, I am love-struck awe and wonder, occupying a body that delights in the physical ~ movement, running, yoga, digging into soil, traversing curvatures and chanting mantra, meditating ~ awakening again and again into the truth of our connectedness.
You might already know that I am drawn to the ways in which words give shape and hope, anchor meaning and reveal wisdom. Words of comfort and revelation ~ insight and confession ~ emissaries of ancient teachings and sacred ways. The words of my teachers are sustenance ~ as nourishing and necessary as the lyrical love words from my children, my community.
Love, movement, sacred and holy words ~ coalesce in my yoga practice, my yoga offerings. My relationship with yoga is approaching 40 years and I can still remember my first class like it was yesterday. (I didn’t like it.) My feelings about yoga stayed tepid unitl a friend brought me to a sort of Buddhist flavored Hot Vinyasa with Sarah Powers in 1992. It was that practice, and Sarah too, that lit the candle within me. I give thanks for this flame within me each and every day.
I think of myself as a “yoga universalist” ~ someone who reveres and appreciates the wisdom and practices from all lineages / traditions. I hold multiple certifications ~ a result of both love and curiosity about this huge thing we call yoga. On any given day, my practice could be drawn from vinyasa or restorative, ashtanga or hatha ~ yet always, every day ~ some aspect of my practice is sourced from the tantric tradition of kundalini ~ for this is my “maha” practice, the great practice that resides in my heart and demands some observance each day.
