"You are about to go on a journey. It is a journey through the layers of your own self. It is a journey through your life, through the worlds within and around you. It begins here, in your own body. It begins now, wherever you are. It is your own personal quest. Make yourself comfortable, for the journey is not short. It could take months, years, or lifetimes, but you have already chosen to go. You began long, long ago...." Anodea Judith

If I was to impart one piece of wisdom that I have gained from my yoga practice is that it has so little to do with what poses you try to put your body in. The western world has gone way off into some crazy chartered territories with the latest fads of goat yoga, beer yoga, hot yoga, and the like. I'm sure as an offering it's a very unique experience, and as they say there is something for everyone. So if this is something you are attracted to, by all means go out and have some fun with it. However, I will say that this unique offering through a membership is not a fad.
When I look at a tree I see the roots, the trunk, and the branches. The whole tree could be described as Ayurveda; life sciences or as "the tree of life". As I take my gaze up to the branches, I recognize a branch named yoga. This is a large branch that supports 8 full limbs. The 8 limbs of yoga. The 8 limbs impart so much wisdom, and within each of those limbs are more little branches that bring deeper insight into who we are. I'm passionate about sharing the knowledge within each of these branches. Through a membership you gain access to my MAGIC, everything YOGA.

Every year this membership offers you a minimum of 4 seasonal yoga virtual series. These classes vary in length between 6 to 8 weeks. All classes will be offered on Zoom and recorded classes will be uploaded to their designated classification here on this site. Your membership includes ALL virtual classes.
All ancient wisdom carries with it a variation of chakra knowledge. In this space learn how your body is made up of these amazing energy wheels and how they are crucial to our being.
Spring and Fall are great seasons to have some fun through challenges. Do yourself a favor and act outside of the box once in a while to stretch your limits.
Every Sanskrit sound has a vibrational frequency. When you string these sounds together you get a symphony of sounds of all living life on Mother Earth. Yoga wisdom teaches that you can altar your state of being by chanting specific frequencies.
Literally translated Ayurveda means Life Sciences...the study of life. Although, not formally trained in Ayurveda I have followed and studied it for a number of years. I will share the wisdom applied to my life and gained.
Spring Yoga is the time to move by adding the element of fire. Poses are geared to release the stagnant winter energies.
When our bodies are struggling in the heat and humidity of the summer having a fiery practice can be to overheating. By adding flowing movements to our poses we incorporate the element of water to help cool the body.
Fall Yoga is fairly fluid, active with an introduction to one restorative pose in your class.
Winter yoga is a time to rest and restore. Using supported props we can allow the muscles and the nerves to reset.
Meditation comes in so many different formats. Learn to meditate, finding the one that is perfect for you in the moment.
This yoga is also known as the sleep yoga. Rod Stryker says it well; "Yoga Nidra allows us to reach the most profound level of relaxation possible. It opens a doorway to a place where we can see ourselves and our lives in the most positive light.”
There are plenty of food lifestyles available for everyone. In this offering I share some of my favorite recipes. Most recipes are gluten free, dairy free and processed sugar free.
Our whole existence is only but one breath... an inhale and an exhale. Different methods bring different benefits. Discover here a breath that you can increase your vitality and your overall well being.
"For all the types of pain that can lead to suffering there is a solution. Through opening our hearts with compassion to the pain that life brings, we can truly cure our pain and avoid our suffering. Then we can walk in the valley of love and experience the vast space within our heart." Sebastian Pole
I have spent the last 25 years practicing yoga. At the age of 50, I decided that it was time to bring yoga into my body, and forget about trying to put my body into yoga.
I have completed 350 hrs + of training with Liane Charette from Source Yoga. The style of yoga is called Vinyasa Flow. In my daily life I practice the daily routines recommended by the sages of Ayurveda in order to share the two sister sciences to my students.
"The nature of yoga is to shine your light of awareness in the darkest corners of your body"
