Sometimes a short morning stretch is just what the body and mind needs to wake up and start your day with intention and gratitude. My latest audio recording lets you mindfully move right from the comfort of your bed or on your yoga mat.
This practice includes mindful breathing, attention on gently stretching the back and whole body including the ankles, feet, and toes. This is a yoga for beginners sequence, or anyone wanting to move the body slowly and gently. Give it a try! It might become part of your daily routine to start your day feeling grateful for your body, mind, and your life.
Are you or someone you know curious about yoga but, you don’t even know where to start, you might not even have a yoga mat or feel intimidated or lost? This series is for you!
Why am I offering this course? Years ago I heard my papa say “I should try that yoga thing sometime, not what YOU do, Amelia, but, yoga for people like me.” I laughed and suggested he look for a class at his local community center. I never thought to teach him myself, especially since we live far away. Fast-forward to “Covid-times” and, after about a year of connecting via facetime or family zoom calls, a light bulb went off “Why not teach to my parents, a custom class just for them, via zoom?” My cousin asked me to teach her dad, my uncle, beginner yoga then a friend asked if I would offer an introductory virtual class to take with her mother. So, I decided it was time to create this course for any and all of YOU!
The more the merrier! If you are reading this and have a family member or friend in mind, I recommend you join this beginner series WITH them! The gift of yoga is truly life-affirming and life-changing. Those of you who practice yoga, you know the benefits of yoga. Here’s an opportunity to share what you love with anyone, anywhere!
Book for yourself or a loved one for $40. Purchase it for two of you to participate together for $75!
Weekly Sessions: These 30 minute sessions will be offered Thursdays 6-630pm in an accessible, non-intimidating format:
Welcome and Check-ins

What equipment do I need? First class, just show up! I will briefly talk about yoga supplies (mat, block, strap.) If you have a yoga mat, great, have it ready. If not, no worries! Here is my request to set up before your first class:
Pay what you can: currently for all of my classes you can book my classes online for free. I request you pay the specified cost of the course via Venmo or PayPal as listed above.

I’m EXCITED to offer another workshop to lead you down the path of self-discovery to create your sacred life! “Sacred” in the sense that your experience of life holds personal meaning, reverence, and importance to you; that you move through life in a way that your actions and your words are intentional and authentic; that there is no doubt that what you offer this world is presented with your personal, sacred stamp.
I always appreciate doing this work myself because I can find myself distracted, derailed by my life’s obligations, or I simply lose sight of my drishti, my point of focus. When I lose my drishti, I find myself making decisions and choosing behaviors which feel messy and stressful…I lose connection to my “true north.”
This workshop will support your desire to recalibrate your inner compass and take aim towards your goals, dreams and desires. If you don’t know where you are right now, and you don’t know where you want to go, it can leave you feeling lost, aimless, and flailing…and frankly that just sucks, and can be an unsatisfying way of living. Adding focus and clarity, and direction in life offers a sense of reassured calm and can ease anxiety and depression, especially if you think “How did I get here? Where am I going? I’m tired of going through life feeling like a zombie. I’m tired of feeling like I’m running on a hamster wheel…getting nowhere. I’m tired of feeling tired.” I’ve asked myself these questions and the tools I’m offering you in this workshop give you the opportunity to experience transformation and “a-has” during the workshop and most importantly, after the workshop to keep yourself on track.
I’m also excited to offer this workshop because it provides an opportunity to ignite your creativity and fuel any projects, ideas, or “callings” you may have. Is there an idea you’ve shelved because you just don’t know what to do with it or something you feel like you’re being pulled to do and things just aren’t quite falling into place? Through setting aside this time to attend to your budding ideas, you will energize opportunities and possibilities for anything!
This two-hour workshop will awaken your sacred warrior, fuel your creative juices, and get you in conversation with your wise, inner teacher. Expect some gentle yoga, meditation, and yoga nidra (yogic sleep.) Each participant will receive a journal and pen.
