“India is the guru of the nations, the physician of the human soul in it's profounder maladies; she is destined once more to remould the life of the world and restore the peace of the human spirit.”  ~Sri Aurobindo
Dearest Friends,

I hope and trust that your holidays were festive and that the start of 2016 is bringing you joy and new beginnings. Many of you started the New Year off with me at Moksha Yoga Phoenix with Sankalpa Crafting and Yoga Nidra. We had a full house and dove deep into the manifestation of our heart's desire. I will be offering the full spectrum of the process April 1-3 based on the book The Four Desires written by my Teacher Rod Stryker. Come unfold your Mighty Purpose!

ImageSpeaking of my teacher, I am headed to India to meet him on Saturday. Along with a small group of my colleagues, we will be sojourning to the Sri Vidya Shrine at The Himalayan Institute campus in Khajuraho.

I have been planning two years for this. My time there will be precious. It is a time to take good exquisite care of myself; to fill my cup up to overflowing. It is a time to unplug from all the noise and distraction of modern daily living and to tune into on a deeper level, divine circuits of stillness and bliss. Yes ~ I open the portal to this energy on a daily basis through meditation and yet, to truly rest for an extended period of time in Her lap in Her Homeland~ why, the very idea is sublime! The time is ripe and I am ready.

Upon my return I have many offerings for our combined delight! I will be back in Phoenix on March 3 and will resume my teaching schedule on Friday March 4th. Saturday March 5th join me for a Shaktified Extended Para Yoga Practice at Moksha Yoga. Calling All Teachers!!! March 11-13 Refine your skills and breathe new life into your classes with Prana ~ The Wind of Life. The following weekend I'm hosting Ayurvedic Master Arun Deva from Los Angeles for The Wise Day. The Workshop is Sold Out yet we are opening up the morning asana classes to the public. Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 6:30-8:30 a.m. Cost is $30 each or $75 for all three. Please send me an email if you would like to practice with us. Check out the link for Fitness Fest. I am presenting two classes again this year and I would love to see you there. And last but not least... drum roll please... Maya Tulum!!! Join my Para Yoga Sisters Tracee Stanley, Chanti Tacoronte-Perez and myself May 28-June 4 for a Magical, Dhi-licious week in Paradise. Be ready to shift your paradigm and align with the forces of Nature to take the reins of your own joyous discoveries. Who's ready to live fearlessly? Listen to dhi (your higher intellect, your soul's calling) and Register Now!

Enjoy the beauty of wherever you are and I will see you as the buds once again begin to blossom in the desert. May you have peace in your spirit and joy in your heart.

Big Love,

The Power of Prana: Exploring the Transformative Nature of the Breath

Prana, often defined as “life force,” is the vital energy that operates within your body to maintain life. Prana is the emphasis in Tantric philosophy where it is believed that your experience of life is a precise reflection of your energy. Thus the way prana flows dictates your experience of life. So, if you change how prana flows, you change how you feel. This experiential workshop explores the alchemy of the prana vayus and the energetic effects of various pranayama techniques. The key to greater joy and fulfillment lies within your own breath. Come and experience it for yourself!
Workshops qualify as Yoga Alliance continuing education hours and are State of Arizona certified; call for details.

When we create a structure, we confront chaos successfully. Like a ship with a deep anchor set in the storm, we embrace our steadfastness. 

Ayurveda teaches how to tailor our lives for maximum alignment with health. Yoga gives us theflexibility and the strength that allow us to grow beyond our fears, angers and griefs into creativity, innocence and joy. Come experience three days of pure daily living.

The Power and Potential of Para Yoga
Para means supreme. Explore this leading-edge style of yoga that embodies the ancient wisdom and philosophy of tantra. Enter a world where alignment meets alchemy and experience a dynamic, full-spectrum practice that incorporates asana, vinyasa krama, bandha, kriya, pranayama, chanting, meditation and more as a portal to expand and grow our capacity to lead more meaningful and purposeful lives where we exponentially thrive and prosper on all levels. 

Unleashing Source Energy for Detox
Twists are a unique category of postures that physically help to detoxify the internal organs, bring in fresh blood flow, improve digestive function, increase spinal rotation, reduce back pain, and reduce stress and tension. On a spiritual level, as we twist we activate a spiraling force called kundalini, known as pure potentiality or the creative pulse. The very sap of life is contained within these vital postures. Combined with specific pranayama and meditation to purify the body and mind, we can explore twists in a way that will empower you to move in and touch your source, and from there, expand back out into the world in a more rich and vibrant way.
