workshop

Landed in Central IL... two weeks in Canton before Bali!

It was a busy weekend in Illinois on the Bad Ash Yoga Tour... Thank you to Chuck & BE Yoga in Decatur for having myself & fellow instructor Jolene Wright for our ALIGN with BALANCE workshop on Friday evening... just a little taste of BALANCE Yoga Retreat Costa Rica.

Saturday morning was round 2 for Yoga & the Voice in Bloomington, IL at Tonya Keach Yoga & Wellness.  What an incredible class!  I honestly love all of my classes, but Saturday morning's energy was beyond words.  Such an amazing group of students, powerful space & stellar vibe.  Thank you for having me Tonya!

Now I'm back in my hometown of Canton, IL & I'm teaching classes Monday through Friday for the next two weeks downtown on the square.  They are donation based classes, so pay what you can, all levels & all bodies welcome. :) 

It's all about the VOICE, Indianapolis bound!!

Oh yeah I'm pumped for this one! As many of you know... I'm a talker and use my voice to express myself through my career, passions, ideas and opinions. This Wednesday I get to put my favorite chakra to work with a unique and exciting vinyasa yoga class based around voice & the vishuddha chakra or throat chakra.  We will incorporate mantra in motion, while we flow through an energizing yoga class. This Wednesday, October 7th 5:45pm - Santosha School (8580 Cedar Place Drive #120 in Indianapolis, IN).  If you are in the area, we would love to see you, & please tell your friends that might be interested around Indy!  Prem! Jai!

Back from Costa Rica - BALANCE Yoga Retreat 2015

Back from Costa Rica, and thrilled to have co-hosted my first yoga retreat along with two incredible instructors Jolene Wright and Joanne Leblanc. BALANCE Yoga Retreat was an amazing week, where we were joined by 9 women from all over the United States and Canada at Hotel Sugar Beach in Guanacaste. The group was wonderful, and I am so grateful to have shared our energies and this experience together.

Sugar Beach Resort was the perfect setting for this week. The yoga shala sat only meters from the beach. Each day we enjoyed yoga from this spot, where each moment could hear the crash of the waves. It overlooked the ocean, and had a beautiful view of the sunset. The beach was secluded, and we often encountered beautiful Costa Rican wild life on the grounds. Many days you would walk past an iguana sun bathing, perhaps a family of howler monkeys would be above your cottage, or you would get a visit from a Magpie during breakfast. The atmosphere was amazing, with a constant breeze running through each yoga class, a pool to cool off in, and a restaurant with a panoramic view. The resort provided the most spectacular variety of fresh and local food for dining. They were attentive and accommodating, making the experience so relaxing and enjoyable. I can't wait to return.

Thank you to our attendees! As I told them, you can never forget your first group. It sets the tone for what is to come. And I'm excited to say you will be seeing more of BALANCE Yoga Retreat. If you weren't able to attend, maybe you can make it next year. More details to come in May!!!!

Bliss & Love to you all! Be brave, take risks, nothing can substitute experience.
