A Little About Me…

Changing the Past, Transforming the Future, by Loving Right Now!

Greetings Friend,

I began studying Yoga philosophy over two decades ago with the Bhakti path of Siddha Yoga. It was a beautiful introduction to Yoga as a devotional practice.  As time went on, I became intrigued by the body through asana; I trained with several types of yoga postural systems and became a prolific full-time Yoga asana teacher with classes, and a teacher’s training program, throughout metro Atlanta.  I obtained a B.S. in exercise science and a Master’s of public health, learning: biomechanics, injury prevention, and chronic disease management.  Despite the “success”, the original depth and sincerity was lacking.

In 2007, I met Swami Jnaneshvara Bharati and was introduced to the Himalayan Tradition, (traditional Yoga Meditation of the Himalayan Masters, the convergence of the three streams: Yoga from the Yoga Sutras, Advaita Vedanta, and Samaya Shri Vidya Tantra), which is dedicated to the art and science of Self-Realization. I was forever changed; now my focus has shifted to the internal, the goal of Yoga, and I coach in these teachings–where meditation practice is central.

I am finishing my last few months of matriculation through OneSpirit Interfaith Seminary.  Currently, I lead biweekly meditation sittings and facilitate guided meditation on Sunday services at Unity North Atlanta Spiritual Center.  I also lead private adaptive Yoga asana classes and meditation at the Piedmont Atlanta Health and Fitness Club.  My friend Robin Raflo and I co-founded Team Lavender where we teach Mindfulness to Piedmont Healthcare employees as stress management.  In late 2016 I began teaching one-on-one and small group Mindfulness training at Foundation Psychiatry.  Our cutting edge practice combines traditional psychiatry, ketamine therapy, and mindfulness meditation.

I am a busy single Mom in the Northern Suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia, with two amazing children and two cats.  Amidst the chaos of my rapidly moving life: I am studying, guiding, and trying to live Yoga Meditation Philosophy. It is my passion to share the ancient practices in modern and concise language.

Om Shanti Namasté
ओम शांति नमस
