🌌One week from today is the second Soulhood Circle Gathering of 2022.
🌟"Come One Come All
The broken-hearted wanderers
The open-hearted warriors
The dreamers without dreams
The dreamers with dreams
Let us inspire one another
To heal and grow
Let us learn to speak our truth if we feel called
Let us learn to listen to others without judgement
Let us learn to hold safe space for one another
Space ruled by loving kindness and compassion for all"

💜The first step in feeding your Spirit is acknowledgment of its existence. Allow the false messages you received as a child to fall away and become more of who you used to be before the world told you who you were. You are a unique drop of the Divine in human form, allow your authentic Self to shine. 🌟When I was a child I totally knew I was a spiritual being. Inherently I felt my connection to everything in nature- the stars, the moon, the mountains, the ocean, the trees
Beauty Unfiltered. How often do we try to hide who really are from the world? Covering scars, blemishes, wanting to remove signs of aging. Well I'm embracing 41, my wrinkles are part of the process. I'm so glad to be a wiser version of my poor, sad, lonely, angry teen into young adult self. Being me as an adult is where it's at. Loving myself, accepting myself. Each curve, line and scar is a sign of how far I've come. No going back. Only forward. Remember to take time to ac
We are energetic beings. Each of us vibrates at a frequency. High vibrations are love, kindness, compassion, truth, joy, gratitude, generosity and peace. Low vibrations are hatred, anger, resentment, jealousy, lies, aggression, greed and fear. We are literally the things we consume, the thoughts we think, the words we speak and the actions we bring forth. It is important to begin to understand this. The average person left unchecked is in constant energetic flux influenced
When it comes to the paths of Yoga, I'm definitely a mixed bag with a Bhakti heart through and through. Oftentimes it is a trauma or pain inflicted to the instrument of love that leads the practitioner to the path if devotion. For me , trauma was definitely a conduit for my spiritual awakening. I basically died to who I was, then gave up every sense of control and handed the reigns over to Source. When I was lost in the darkness I called out to the Universe to help me. I sob

💜I used to search outside of myself for love and was consistently disappointed. Then one day I discovered that I need not look anywhere but inside myself for the love that I seek and then the whole game changed. We are beings of love, each of us deserving and loved proved simply by our existence. 🕉Yoga is a fabulous way to cultivate a consistent self-care and self-love practice . It helps you to take care of your body, refuel your energy, get out of your thinking mind an
How can you truly love and accept anyone else as they are if you don't do the same for yourself? 💜Self-love is top priority on a spiritual path. It consists of intentionally carving out time for yourself by yourself so that you learn to know, understand and accept yourself just as you are. It also means celebrating how far you've come, checking in to see how you can support yourself moving forward, as well as the process of removing from your life thoughts, behaviors and r
Why I teach in a trauma informed way....
Almost all humans have experienced some type of traumatic event. Trauma ranges in how it's experienced and is extremely detrimental when it happens in early childhood, ages 0-6.
Traumas large and small leave their traces in a person's being, and lives in the brain and the body long after the traumatic incident/s occurs.
A very crude explanation- basically what happens during trauma is that the nervous system responds in "fight,
This week is all about supporting your mental health in classes. Yoga practices literally teach you how to chill out your nervous system by soothing the senses, expanded breathing and mindful movement of the body. All of the practices give the mind something to focus on so it doesn't stay stuck in the stress. Over time you learn how to soften the grip of your thinking mind...to connect you with the part of you behind the noise- your Highest Self, your centered self. You stil

At the end of this morning's class a student said "Thank you for this beautiful class that helped bring me back to me." This is what yoga practices do.... they support finding the practitioners internal balanced point...the place where you feel like you. In hatha yoga we do this by giving the mind something to focus on- the body and breath. There are many ways to practice Yoga. The way I teach is rooted in Classical Yoga and includes an 8 Fold Path designed to bring students
In honor of my favorite teacher, Ram Dass, this week's theme is "Be Here Now." Honestly- how often are you able to just be in the moment? Typically the unchecked human mind leads the owner of said mind into thinking about the past or projecting fear onto the future. The average person can find it extremely difficult to be still with their own thoughts. Their mind is literally pinging constantly and pulling them in all directions at once. It can feel extremely uncomfortable
On a spiritual path, bit by bit you begin to shed old ways of being...ways that you were taught by the world at large. You watch old patterns of behavior and thought that don't serve your best interest fall away replaced by more loving ways of being. This happens through conscious awareness of looking at how you think, speak and act towards yourself and others. It happens through gaining an understanding of the importance of learning how to truly love, trust and respect your
Although I thoroughly enjoy teaching large groups of people in person, in nature, events like that take a lot of heart energy and leave me a little sad and depleted when they are over. I'm also extremely sensitive to the energy of others, which I only realized during the time in shut down, so I can only do those large events sporadically. I currently much prefer teaching Yoga from my living room. What I offer virtually is a self care practice that students can cultivate f

Self-care Sunday half day retreat was just what I needed. Thank you to @racheltarvinyoga for doing this with @joellegordoncoaching . What a beautiful experience to have shared with you and the group.
