Yoga changed my life. I was living on auto-pilot, doing what I thought “I should do”, saying what I thought “I should say” and being what I thought “I should be” and there was absolutely no joy.

My everyday existence was a heavy backpack full of responsibility that I labeled – be good! Be good because you not good enough. Oh yeah, I was “good” and miserable. I was trying to be good enough to be loved.  I was trying to love myself.

Then my life was literally turned upside down. A twist of fate and I went flying off a 25 foot cliff, flipped 10 times before landing upside down in a crumpled car with the headlights and the wheels spinning into darkness.

I miraculously survived, but not without a pretty painful injury to my neck.  After months of Chiropractic treatments, that did not help much, I found my way to my first yoga class. I found my way to a different way of living that was rooted in presence, in love.

I soon discovered that the poses didn’t matter except as roadmaps to truth.  And, the truth is that we are all perfectly imperfect and that’s “good enough.” There is no need to strive. Just show up on your mat and in your life with love, with truth, and with kindness and then everything else works itself out.

Now, fifteen years later, I am in the best shape of my life on all levels – happier, healthier and more balanced.   Yes, life still has it ups and downs, which definitely keeps it interesting, sometimes more than I’d like,  but  I always find my way back to my center point of love and presence rooted in my daily yoga practice.

I know that yoga works and thats why I am so happy to share the gift and the love of yoga with you.  Yoga will change your life.  All you have to do is show up. But, please don’t take my word for it.  As a matter of fact, don’t take anyone’s word for it.  Come!   Experience it for yourself. You don’t have to go flying off a cliff to find truth, to find love, and/or heal your life.   Just unroll your yoga mat.  That’s it.  It is that easy. COME!  Meet me on the mat today and lets practice together!  You will be glad you did.  YOGA changes lives.

From my heart directly to your heart, all my love, all my light, and all my blessings.

Much love
