India. Puerto Rico. Indonesia. United States. Europe. Mexico. I Love You. I Am Grateful.
It is an auspicious and profoundly transformative experience to study with Self-Realized Master, Sri Mooji Baba, immerse myself fully in the practice of Ashtanga Yoga with R. Sharath Jois, and the Teacher’s Teacher, Sri Dharma Mittra. Developing a deep yoga and meditation practice has completely transformed my movement patterns, communication abilities, and capacity to perceive and offer love.
I am grounded in a daily Mysore and Dharma yoga practice. I also love and train contortion, calisthenics, hand balancing, rock climbing, and dance; all of it is intuitive movement. It's all love. I am happy to offer yoga classes, movement retreats, workshops, and intensives in the United States, India, Europe, and the Caribbean.
My life calling and practice has led me to travel the world and immerse myself fully in yoga and meditation through villages in south India (Mysore, Lakshmipuram, Goa, Tiruvannamalai, Varkala), mountains of north India (Rishikesh, Dharamsala), Indonesia (Ubud, Bali), Portugal (Odemira), and United States (Boulder and The Blue Ridge Mountains), the crisp blue waters in the Caribbean (Puerto Rico, Isla Mujeres), the busy city streets (New York City and Washington, DC), and the heart of Miami Beach. Some of my most beloved teachers are Faith Scimecca, Tim Feldmann, Rolf Naujokat, Richard Freeman, Mary Taylor, Ty Landrum, and Lila Rasa Brown.
With extensive training as a Psychologist in Social Emotional Development (Ph.D.), Women’s Studies, Reiki, Magnified Healing, and Oneness Awakening, my classes utilize a keen awareness of the intellectual, emotional, and energetic body to empower those who practice consistently, for a long period of time, with devotion. I offer universal intimacy, full of love, honor, and a sweet mix of playfulness, integrity, and discipline.
