    Yoga has been a part of my life for over 15 years. Around the time I began my studies in massage therapy and holistic health, I came to the understanding that my entire yoga practice could be as simple as aligning my spine and taking a few deep breaths. I slowly began to dive deeper into my yogic path. The first time I did kirtan, the practice of chanting sacred, ancient mantras with music, I entered a profound state of tranquillity. With the newfound realization that my practice could be singing ancient mantras of love, gratitude and joy, I was inspired to take my studies to a higher level. I immersed myself in the teachings brought to the west by Ram Dass and several other amazing yogis and today I am honored and humbled to be able to share these ancient teachings.                           Yoga is many things to many people but often defined as the union of the self with the One Divine Universal Consciousness. From the teachings of Yoga come many practices designed to bring the practitioner into the present moment, into a place of infinite love and abundance, where life exists.                           My intention is to provide soulful, heart-focused, breath-centered transmissions of these sacred teachings through traditional Yogic practices including pranayama (breath), asana (posture), dhyana (meditation) and mantra, as well as drawing from practices of other ancient cultures, to help practitioners clear their minds, connect with their hearts and realize that we are all cells in the same body...we are all One Love.                 Thank you to all of my teachers, especially Ram Dass, Krishna Das, Govin Das, Saul David Raye, Monica Mesa and Kristi Murrin.
