“The test that your discontent is divine is the fact that it has no trace of sadness or bitterness to it.” Anthony De Mello
I have contemplated for so long what it would look like to be a community of people that lived their passions , though different, completely together, side by side, regardless of their beliefs, dogmas, differences, etc. When people who sing the same song , yet in all different languages, each offer up their voices to create a harmony that makes the song even that more beautiful. Where human beings become so human that their divine cannot help but radiate through them towards one another and then out to the world around them. Where love and respect, ability to be teachable and honor, growth and acceptance become the norm and celebrated rather than feared. I have contemplated for so long that it isn’t impossible that we could actually experience what oneness is all about and recognize that the Namaste’ is for all. IMAGINE…..A Sacred Song
I offer Sacred Yoga, a Faith based or non Faith based yoga classes as well as Trauma Sensitive Yoga and Resiliency Training for Veterans and First Responders. I also offer to come to Communities and do a personal Introductory class for them so they can decide if they want a mobile Yoga class. You will also want to click on to my Workshops & Retreats to find the latest Essential Yoga Workshops for 2016. My new offering is “Yoga For Recovery , Serenity Series”, a 4 week Intro to how Yoga aides in alcohol and drug rehabilitation and remission. The detox process of recovery when coupled with Yoga is a much faster process as the asana practice detoxes the organs that toxins have built up in over the course of the addiction. The mindful consciousness of how we engage the breath clears the “dope brain fog” that those in recovery experience often for a few years. Info further down..
A Sacred Song Mobile Studio
MY work with faith based Yoga is that I am a mobile yoga teacher that goes to communities of faith and hold classes in their own facility, incorporating their own faith and philosophy. This can be for the community of faith itself, or as an outreach for the surrounding community.
My work with Veterans & First Responders is to help them deal with trauma, stress, and learning resiliency in all areas of their lives as they serve the community. I’ve been trained with The Give Back Yoga Foundation, Mindful Yoga Therapy, and Bootstraps, a Stress Management Program with Yoga, online training here in Phx. Here is a short video about Yoga Gives Back involving First Responders.
The Passion & Purpose Of Trauma Sensitive Yoga & Equine Therapy Video
Here is a intro video of a faith-based class: The Philosophy & The Prayer
I’m so excited to be working on and presenting THIS. This will be an “undogmatic” series focused on being mindfully aware that not only our own lives but also the World around us has ventured into religious, personal, and political “busyness” that often steals the purpose and passion of our lives. Maybe we’ve been taught that prayer is something we DO and WAR in rather than something we just ARE and BE into. This series will take us out of the mindset that WE are “responsible” to accomplish miracles of faith, where there is often this expectation that God is GOING to do what we demand, and instead bring us into a sense that we can hold healing space for ourselves and others just by BEING and learning INTO a contemplative focus, devoid of stress and a “spiritual warfare” mentality that doesn’t often work the miracles we have been taught about and hoped for. The Christian Mystics have been long forgotten and replaced by a thrust devoid of this just BEING present with ourselves and FOR others without feeling the need to “change them.”. This love is a “just because” love with no alterior motive whatsoever. It changes YOU. People of all different faiths have changed the world in ways that held NO warring mentality, but instead held a simple trust and space for listening to and for God, in Spirit and Truth. And guess what? It is what you can learn to hear for yourself without others preaching AT or TO you. Though it isn’t SIMPLE to engage in a contemplative lifestyle, it is possible if one desires it. Holding space for oneself and others is a deeply held honor and to enter that space is a journey that leads to freedom. More details will be announced as they are finalized.
Article: Yoga isn’t just for girls!
I love to do onsite Yoga classes for Companies who are looking to bringing healthy modalities into their office space for their employees. I teach Hatha Flow, Vinyasa Classes for strength, flexibility, and energy. I also teach Gentle Beginners classes for those new to Yoga or have limited mobility. Yoga Nidra is my new love and I incorporate it with my Essential Yoga Workshops.
