Goddess Yoga Teaching Style: Inclusive, Warm, Knowledgeable.
“My first job as teacher is to listen to you, to see you and connect. I am here to support your transformation with healing tools and guidance that is appropriate, safe and potent for you. Think of your life as a journey and I am a tour guide here to help you inhabit your life fully. This includes your physical body, your emotional being, how you use your energy, your mental process and your spiritual curiosity.” In yoga these are called koshas or layers of the self.
Her teaching style has evolved over 25 years and has been influenced by many exceptional teachers, students, spiritual inquiries and life experiences. It is a synthesis of years of studying and practicing being a woman, a mother, a lover, a daughter, a seeker, a go-go dancer (humor is a great healer), a business owner, a traffic director and a soul in a body. What weaves it all together is authenticity, compassion, consistent practice and vision.
Students consistently report feeling greeted, inspired and honored by her grace and wisdom. She guides with heart, precision and enthusiasm. She integrates body, mind and spirit in her private healing sessions and group classes. Students experience a complete synthesis of anatomy and alignment in motion and in stillness in this work. Sessions and classes are holistic, potent, deeply healing creative journeys with tangible positive results.
“The desire to be fully alive, awake and authentic inspires my teaching.”
I am a 49 year old female yoga teacher, student and goddess entrepreneur. I have been practicing yoga since I was pregnant with my first son in 1986. I wanted to feel better, have a healthy pregnancy and learn how to relax. It was the best thing I ever did for myself. I loved it instantly…
The relaxation part at the end was incredible. I was very high functioning, or high strung more likely, and performance oriented – no one had ever told me to slow down before. I had no idea how to breathe. It was like having permission to take a long hot bath when all my life I only got to bathe with a bucket of cool water and a small sponge. It was that nourishing.
It was prenatal Hatha yoga. Not hot yoga or Core power yoga or Vinyasa flow or any of the crossover kinds of yoga we have now. There were no designer, hip, Ganesha sheer flowing yoga clothes lines at REI or Prana. It was not trendy or cool or even popular at all 22 years ago. It was however: my life line, my road into myself – healing and restoring my well being on a deep and profound level. It was 13 years later before I took a yoga teacher training … but I was hooked.
Emotional and physical pain and some sabotaging patterns motivated parts of the journey. The body is a great teacher. The mind is a powerful ally or a formidable foe. You choose.
The challenge we face is: asking for help when we are in the struggle. It limits us and we feel contracted, small, less than, different, ugly, separate, alone. That is precisely when we must open and reach inside with a trusted teacher and beyond our negatives thoughts, and into the vast pool of light that is actually who we are. But it is almost impossible to go into your deepest self when you feel down and alone. Without a partner, teacher or guide, the danger is staying stuck and believing in the negative thought loop. The bridge through the defeating or scary stuff our mind tells us requires that we admit the difficulty we are having, open up and receive help and guidance. This is the journey we make together. Shine the light. Excavate. Explore and discover your brilliance with the healing tools I offer. I love sharing yoga with sincere students from all walks of life who desire a holistic experience of yoga. I have a strong spirit and a bright light to shine on this world. It is such an honor to shine the light on all who come in contact with me.
