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.
Astrology and plant wisdom are other obsessions of mine that are woven into my teachings. I also run moon circles, essential oils workshops and do natal chart readings.
With roots in Canada, after 20 years of traveling and studying with respected teachers and nearly a decade in the role of teacher, my home is in Venice, CA where I lead classes at Love Yoga Space. Starting in April I’ll lead another 200-hour yoga teacher training in my living room. One of my favorite collaborators is Sasha Bahador, a Soulful guide who, like me, feels called to do it a little differently. We are run a 300-hour YTT which will roll out in modules that you can do over time. The 2018 menu also includes Yoga Nidra trainings, retreats and online offerings. Head over to my website to check it out! I hope to meet you in person some day. I’m sure it will be magical.
