A Little About Me…

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

Greetings Friend,

Wow–I’m encroaching on 10 years of this blog. It’s 2022 and I intend to refresh the content and add new musings. Please, bear with any broken links or old schedules.

I began studying Yoga philosophy in the early 1990s on the Bhakti path of Siddha Yoga. It was a beautiful introduction to Yoga as a devotional practice. I became intrigued by the body through asana. I trained in 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 in public health, learning: biomechanics, injury prevention, and chronic disease management.  Despite the “success”, the original depth and sincerity were 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 as expounded in 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 true goal of Yoga, and I share these teachings–where meditation practice is central.

In 2008 I graduated OneSpirit Interfaith Seminary.  Currently, I co-lead weekly meditation sittings and facilitate guided meditation on Sunday services at Unity North Atlanta Spiritual Center.  In 2019, I became a program coordinator for the Piedmont Women’s Heart Program. Where I lead I organize free events, lead meditation, teach adaptive yoga and do individual coaching to help educate all women about a holistic heart-healthy lifestyle.

I am a busy Mom, who recently married the love of my life. We live in the Northern Suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia, with four amazing children, two cats, and a chihuahua.  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 ancient practices in modern and concise language.

Om Shanti Namasté
ओम शांति नमस
