About this pro

We combine yoga with meditation once the student is ready. We mesh the yogic philosophy with the Christian, Buddhist or and other belief systems. This way the student might more easily deepen and ground their practice to ancient wisdom traditions.

Sharing what I am learning every day.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?
We start with a discussion about the subtlty of the human body. We discuss the discipline itself and supports or approach needed for daily practices. We experience the body as a divining rod for the divine energy.
 
Starting slow, we become familiar with the current state of the physical body. We learn about our current boundaries. This way we avoid pushing too far and risking injury. We work to experience the current limits as strength points. There, with static holds, we draw more chi into flow, engaging the breath for support.
 
From there we are able to relax our limitations, and broaden our scope. Through gentile perseverance, our practice grows.
 
We end with a little yoga nidra or guided meditation.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

200 hour certification with Joseph LePage.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

No. Each opportunity is different. My commitment is to help folks grow.


How did you get started teaching?

I have been practicing a bhakti yoga since the 1980s. It is not part of a religion so much as done with care and devotion. All religions are welcome.


What types of students have you worked with?

Old, young and in between. When I get down to practice, often my dogs join me.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I picked up a flint spearhead last week, probably 500+ years old, in the North Carolina piedmont.

I am passionate about indiginous cultures.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Yoga is not a sport. It exists as preparation for meditation. If you find a good teacher, go slowly and taper off.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

1. Are they proud of their bodies or accomplishments? Beware.

2. Do they address the mind? Or just the body? The whole you need to be involved, especailly the mind.

3. Do they use a lot of jargon? Yoga is simple. It's language needs to be also.

4. Do they offer support reading? It sure helps.

5. Do they address your current belief system or just want to superimpose their own.

6. Are they into your growth or your subscription?

7. Do they include meditation?
