Fall – The time of letting go – Releasing the leaves it’s been creating since Spring, trees let all that work go, and rest back into their essence. “But I worked hard on that,” said no tree ever. The leaves were there for a reason, two...

Breaking a Habit – from Unconscious to Intentional

“Thank you for helping me break my addiction,” he said, with a grateful look in his eyes.  I didn’t know what he was talking about. “You sent an email to our list with the steps to healing an unhealthy habit. They made the difference. Thank you.” I felt that familiar...

For-giving back, for letting go

For-giving back, for letting go

For many years I’ve counseled people around forgiveness. Forgiveness of themselves, forgiveness of others. We’ve all been on both sides of the desire for forgiveness. The issue is, as Nelson Mandela said: “Holding on to resentment is like drinking...

Vulnerability = Strength

Vulnerability = Strength

When you read that vulnerability = strength, what was your first reaction? To some of you, it may seem an Orwellian (war=peace) stretch, to others it may be the most natural thing in the world. I keep hearing people mistake vulnerability for weakness, and I’d...

Karma, Samskara, Potholes and the Splits

Yoga and several other eastern philosophies are built around the concept of the wheel of karma and samskara. Karma is action.  Samskara is the imprint of the action: the unresolvedness of the action. POTHOLES, a metaphor Where I grew up there were still a few dirt...

Yoga and Emotions

Leaving class the other day I overheard something both beautiful and curious. A student who was leaving the class I just taught said to someone who hadn’t, something like “I want to go home and have a good cry.”  The other person (I’ll call...

What is Spirituality?

I’ve been meeting with a group called the Center for World Spirituality. What’s exciting to me about them is that they seem to be creating a place for Spirituality to blossom independent of religion. For people to foster their connection to spirit rather...

Have 20 minutes to change your life?

Come meet with me, share with me what you want to create for yourself, and I’ll help you come up with a 20 minute practice that meets your definition of fun, that also focuses your attention on what you want to create for yourself. Something you could weave into your daily rhythm.  Something that will super-charge your life.

What are you ready for?

  • Get out of pain?
  • Shed an old pattern?
  • Focus on a project?
  • Master a physical feat?
  • Try on a new way of being?

Let me help!

How does it work?

While things are working relatively well right now, we all have ways we want to grow. This takes action, and your body is the instrument of action. When you combine physical activity with mindful focus, you bridge the gap between intention and action. You literally infuse your body with what you want, and it releases that intention through your life the rest of the day.

I know – we are busy, so having a short practice that you can do at the beginning of the day sets you on a powerful course.  Your practice efficiently serves as inspiration, motivation and exercise is what I recommend, and what I want to support you with.

I’m known for

  • Helping people achieve things they didn’t know they could achieve
  • Asking just the right question
  • Making poignant observations
  • Explaining through evocative metaphors
  • Helping people enjoy their experience of life more

Making change can be quick and easy

A customized practice is extremely effective. Designed specifically to target your unique body, and save time because you can do it from the comfort of your own home – no taking time to head to the gym, just roll out of bed half awake, do the quick practice we came up with for you, and notice that you feel more awake and alive, more flexible, stronger, more “in your body” all day long.

Plus, you’ll have connected somatically to what you’re up to in your life, and you will stay more present to it throughout your day.

All that? 20 minutes? YES!

“I feel as alert as I do after coffee” – EU

Is there a special introductory rate?

Yes, just $65 for your first visit, and no charge if you’re not completely satisfied.

Call me to set up a time: 510-301-0747

If you’ve read this far, you’re at least curious. So make the call.  I’ll be nice 🙂  No pressure.

There are many possible futures.  Make choices that align with the best possible future for you.

What have you got to lose? It’s actually fun to spend an hour with me talking about your life and seeing how the expansive world of yoga can support you… once you know what you want.

What if I need more support?

If you want extra support in addition to the above towards living a more wonderful embodied life, of course I can help with that, too.
