Leaving on a jet plane...
I love this photo.
It was taken this year on Maui on the last day of my “Maui State of Mind” retreat during our beach clean-up walk. We leave every place we touch with a piece of ourselves, but we don’t have to leave behind our “junk”. So, we spent the morning picking up the pieces, the forgotten items, the trash, the overlooked and we leave the place better than we found it.
I’ll be leaving Sacramento at the end of December for Los Angeles. I’m better for having been a part of this community for 17 years and hopefully Sacramento is better, too. I’m excited by the adventure ahead and plan to circle back monthly to connect and teach and learn. Until then, you can find me on the mat at the following locations through mid-December, at the LIVE! Rock Your Soul event at Rebel Yell Yoga this Friday, and on this website during the in-between times.
Rebel Yell Yoga: Monday Noon, Wednesday 6:15pm
RAW Yoga: Monday 6pm, Tuesday & Wednesday Noon
Just Be Yoga - Walnut Creek: Thursday 6:15pm & 7:45 Nidra
Zuda Folsom: Tuesday 6pm Nidra
We are so excited to be invited to offer this experience at Rebel Yell Yoga. Here’s what Rebel Yell is up to: We believe that the practice is meant to be experiential, not aspirational, because every body is already a yoga body. We believe that inclusivity makes our community stronger, and that celebrating uniqueness can unite us. And most of all, we believe that yoga doesn’t end when class is over — it’s just the beginning!”
This special confluence of movement and live music powerfully impacts the body to awaken the heart, mind, and soul. Liani Moore and I have purposely curated a 75-minute experience that combines power vinyasa with live acoustic guitar and vocals to challenge your body, soothe your soul, and make your practice come alive. This class uses flowing asana to generate transformative energetic shifts within the body and live music to make that energy come alive. You’ve never experienced a class quite like this. It’s all about you--LIVE!
