As a six years old, I knew that I’d been a tree. Over the course of my life synchronicity played out. I still believe the Standing Ones are my relatives and I have lived among them. My path and philosophy have grown out of a mixture of beliefs, intuitive knowing, and from ancient lineages of teachings. The old ways – traditional modalities from both the east and the west – run deep within me.
A 20 year yogic path opened me to self-discovery. I have been a certified yoga instructor since 2003. I teach privately in one-on-one classes offering a very gentle traditional Hatha style of yoga. Focusing on the breath and ease at the minimum edge, our work is about awareness of our bodies and the spine. I am fortunate in that all my teachers were of very old lineages, teaching yoga in its purest form, no modernity.
A long time study of shamanic and Lakota ways brought me to working with the medicines of the natural world. I live and walk these old ways because an awakening in my cellular memory occurred when I crossed a threshold. A literal crossing from hallway to classroom. Like thunder clapped me into another world. A short time later, an Ancestor who had waited patiently for me in the invisible realm of a journey, took hold of my shoulders, he looked into my eyes reminding me of who I am. I am living my purpose at this time – crafting and teaching what I’ve been shown to the best of my abilities.
Gratefully I teach. It is an honor to carry these medicine ways, bringing them to as many as will come – seeking their own wisdom and knowledge of self and Source. It is a true gift to be the one who holds the needle, laces the drum, seeds the rattle, shoes the soles –teaching these ways is remarkable on all levels – my soul sings. Join me in creating and celebrating, crafting sacred objects for yourself, family and community, for the greater good. Each workshop a day of ceremony and joy, affinity with the natural world, the Four Winds, Mother Earth, Father Sky and the Mystery. Each crafting creates kinship with Self.
