Meditation and yoga, private and class instrucction.

(please also see my offerings under Massage and Energywork)

Yoga:

Offerings: Burning enthusiasm. Aka tapas.  Whether we are sweatin’ out the impurities, or chillin’ the F out, embracing practice is where it’s at. I love helping people feel more embodied and expansive in their embodiment. I have taught the full gamut of yoga class from restorative yoga (one of my favorite practices), to vigorous vinyasa, to meditation retreats. Oh ya, and I swear a lot… J lovelovelovelovelovelove in all its forms is the root of what we do on the matt.

My current offerings include:

Body Prayer Vinyasa: a graceful, deep vinyasa flow designed to enliven your mind/heart, body, soul, spirit, and whatever else you have, in a ritual of movement, sweat, intention, breath and love. The underlying theme is self-appreciation and activation of the eros/agape cycle of connection with Source.

Restorative Yoga : a long, slow, langourous practice combining restorative, yin, and somatic practices. A good class to practice intention setting (sankalpa). This is the effortless letting-go side of practice, using lots of props – deeply restorative for the nervous system. CTFO.

Nightynight Yoga for Insomniacs: the melt and float class. A gentle practice with lots of deep breathing, gentle stretching and tension release.  Take the sleeping meds AFTER class so I don’t have to peel you off the floor ..thank you.

Bio: I started a formal practice as a tween, which essentially was a yoga based concentration practice on the chakras and energy flow through the body.  In my twenties, I was In NYC where I got new-agey with a formal practice, still focusing on the energy systems of the body, but included some pagan magik influences. I eventually found my way back into the yoga system, where I practiced, as most yogis do, the basic Patanjali path of concentration. This lead me to the more ritualistic Tantra practices, and devotional practices with malas, deities, firepits, and the like. From here, it was an easy slide into Tibetan Buddhism and the dakini practices of Tsutrim Allione. A few years into this, I became aware of Ken Wilber and his Integral approach to life, as well as his distinctly Buddhist approach to formal mediation. This completely re-arranged my approach and beliefs. My quest for a teacher lead me to Dharma Punx, and eventually back to NYC, where I practiced with Josh Korda and the crew there. In France, I delved deeper into insight meditation practice with Martin Ayleward. In the states, I began studying with other Insight teachers, most influential have been Rodney Smith and Shinzen Young. On one retreat with Against the Stream Buddhist Meditation Society (the mother organization of the Dharma Punx) I met George Haas, one of the assistant teachers, who again opened up a new world of practice. I completed a 2year mentorship training program with George Haas (Metta Group) and Joanna Harper (Against the Stream) in Los Angeles. I currently study with George Haas, Mike Zittel, and Shinzen Young. I offer private mentorship online, and occasional classes and ½ day retreats in the Gunnison Valley.
