Namaste! “My spirit honors your spirit!”
Contact me for personalized individual and couples’ Yoga sessions, and for spiritual direction sessions. In addition, I can arrange and teach a group Yoga class for your own private events (holiday parties, birthday parties, etc.). Yoga sessions are wonderful gifts, too! Inquire with me if you’d like to purchase gift certificates.
Yoga – There’s only so much personalization that can occur in a group yoga class. We all have unique physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual issues which can be addressed through yoga. In private sessions, the student can work more deeply with the teacher on unique needs and issues affecting not only the physical yoga practice, but also daily living. The student can even request more specialized teaching and practice with breathing techniques, concentration/meditation, or other subjects of personal interest. Individual or couple’s sessions available.
Spiritual Direction – Spiritual companions are intuitive spiritual friends – accountable and compassionate. You may come to spiritual direction for a variety of reasons, including, to identify and trust your own spiritual experiences; integrate spirituality into your daily life; prayerfully discern and make difficult choices; share your hopes, struggles, and losses; and live the essence of your spiritual affiliation with integrity. I also combine restorative yoga with Spiritual Direction for anyone who is interested.
I’ve been teaching Hatha Yoga since 2000 and Raja Yoga at Old Dominion University since 2012. For my master’s degree, I studied Mental Health Counseling at Old Dominion. My bachelor’s is Anthropology with Highest Honors from the University of Hawaii at Manoa. My 200-hr Yoga Teacher Training was completed through Angela Phillips Yoga; and 300-hr advanced training through Integral Yoga. I’ve been a Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance since 2011 and my designation of E-RYT means I have over 3,000 hours of teaching experience since 2011 — current total is 4,935 hours. I love sharing Yoga with the world! Yoga is for everyone!
I’m also a certified Spiritual Director through the Spiritual Direction Institute of Tidewater, a program started by Chester Michael in 1989. This is a Christian-based program, but I’m open and respectful toward all religious and spiritual paths. You can also find me at Spiritual Directors International.
