The Art of Rest: Restorative Teacher Training
My passion is to inspire seekers to rediscover their creative self through personal inquiry, effortlessness, ritual, sangha and sadhana. I have been studying and teaching yoga in the Sri Viddya linage since 2005; initiated by my teacher Yogarupa Rod Stryker. In 2015, I completed my Masters degree at Pacifica Graduate Institute in Humanities with an emphasis on Depth Psychology. This endeavor solidified my belief that creativity is one of the most essential tools to living a joyous and purposeful life. I enjoy sharing these teaching through ritual and creativity, as these are some of the most ancient tools used to explore the depth of our soul.
I have also studied Restorative Yoga extensively and the practical applications of yoga therapy with Judith Lasater. I am grateful to have studied the art of yantras with Pieter Weltevrede & Mavis Gewant. I try to travel to India yearly, where I am re-inspired to share these teachings.
