I am infinitely interested in the Mystery and have in some ways been searching for the grace of the Divine Feminine, most of my life… more and more I learn how she moves and breathes in me. I love combining what I have come to know empirically through my own body and learned through various lineages, in simple body and heart opening experiences, particularly for women, that enliven and enrich.
Slow movement with breath in yoga, the way it is sensual or sorrowful or expansive in one moment, and childlike in another, the way I get to move through all the debris clambering around my mind and just be a little. When I manage to pry myself from my minds daily obsessions, yoga with breath soothes and fine tunes the subtle reaches of how I am being.
Sincere effort has moved me through truly awesome long term meditation experiences, deep release bodywork processes, outside adventures, intensive yoga, breath work, Tantra and teacher plants. They have all served as a reminder to keep coming to myself, brought further awareness of internal realities, many of which, they have allowed me to permanently release.
The mind is reflected in the body, and as such the body provides an access point for releasing the old and changing the mind through touch, movement and breath, and this change is enormously supported by simply being outside. Outside, the land and the elements are medicine for the psyche.
Our bodies hold the stories and shapes of our lives, what we’ve been through, thought and felt.
Yoga and deep Bodywork challenge the shapes our minds have made physical, offering the opportunity to let go, and renew our perspectives.
It’s a blessing to have learned what I know as part of adventures in places like, Hawaii, Thailand, India, the UK, Zanzibar and South Africa. My training in ancient massage and cutting edge bodywork processes as well as yoga, meditation and breath work have all been a part of my own necessary exploration within…I look forward to sharing with you what I have learned, whether it’s on my massage table, on your mat or out adventuring.
