Shamanic and Green Yoga
Private one on one Yoga or Coaching, small group Yoga, and large community Yoga classes are available. All services are available at home, a suitable location of your choice, indoors or outdoors, or online. The style of Yoga I teach is a combination of various styles and lineages with a strong foundation in Hatha Yoga, the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and the eightfold path. The word Yoga means “to yoke” or to bring together mind, body and spirit, and this union can be achieved through a variety of Yoga practices including asana, pranayama, meditation, and mantra.
Our sangha practices Green Yoga. In light of Georg and Brenda Feuerstein’s book, the practice of Green Yoga is to translate the wisdom of 5000 years of yogic teachings into living a sustainable and “green” lifestyle, one in which we not only learn to purify and transform the body, mind and spirit, but one where we take those teachings off the mat and into our environment. They explain that our modern civilization is in dire need of the moral and spiritual wisdom that the heritage of traditional Yoga teaches. Green Yoga “is Yoga that incorporates environmental mindfulness and activism in its spiritual orientation, especially in our time of great global crisis. It stands for a sattvic mind and a sattvic world.” ~ Georg & Brenda Feuerstein, Green Yoga
Depending on creative expression and intuitive guidance, my Yoga classes explore a wide range of yogic and spiritual tools and techniques including sun salutations, vinyasa, restorative Yoga poses, pranayama (yogic breathing), meditation, kirtan (devotional song), mantra (sacred sound repetition), inspirational quotes from great yogis and saints, mystical poetry, visualization, affirmations, smudging, aromatherapy and more to enhance your transformative journey into the Self. Come with an open mind and an open heart, ready to receive light and love.
