Yoga & Meditation

Yoga: The hero’s journey plays out in every class.

We begin by grounding into this moment, becoming fully present.

Bringing the mind, body and soul back into alignment, we accept this call to adventure. As we move through the sun salutations, we face familiar, increasingly intense challenges…until we reach our edge.

It is there, at the edge, that we grow. 

We become aware of our edge, how to play right up to it, how to fall and then begin again, with well-earned humility that opens our minds and hearts.

This is how I fell in love with yoga.

All forms of yoga are wonderful, but in my classes, we take a hero’s journey.

What better practice to strengthen our physical, emotional and mental resiliency simultaneously so that we can lead lives with more peace, confidence and humor?

I know…you just can’t meditate. That’s what I told myself, too.

I reached out for meditation coaching in a moment of desperation – willing to try anything as I navigated my own trauma – in 2016. Fortunately, I was connected with an incredible teacher, Amanda Jones, founder of the Dharana Method.

After experiencing the results firsthand, I immediately joined her course and became certified as a meditation teacher in 2017. I have since taught a session on Meditation, Trauma and Resilience to cohorts in the U.S. and Canada.

Yes, it’s hard at first. We aren’t used to sitting still. The mind races, shrieks, negotiates for relief from the absence of mindless doing.

But then…something magical happens. And it’s not woo-woo. The astounding benefits of meditation are backed by decades of research.

Find meditation for yourself through a private coaching session or join us for a group meditation.
