ANUPAYA & SOUND MANDALA YOGA
"Wisdom is permanent...Experience is transient
The ultimate goal of spiritual practice is not to produce short-lived experiences
but rather a continuous process of revealing the true, divine nature of consciousness that dwells within"
I was exposed to the ancient wisdom of yoga and meditation in my teens. My soul was ignited with remembrance and unwavering passion.
Two NDE's imprinted this intense longing to re-immerse in the Light...Meditation and Yoga give me the means to re-discover this.
Anupaya Yoga is designed to embrace aspects of the many yogas (Hatha, Nada, Kundalini, Bhakti, Raja) providing the full spectrum of experiential and sustaining Divine Unity. This had the most healing and transformational impact in every aspect of my being and remains an integral influence in my works. I've been blessed with a yogi and teachers from India to facilitate my process giving an a spiritually sovereign voice to my divinity within and confidence to radiate grace that is meant to be for all.
Twenty-five years ago I become a certified teacher. To this day I enjoy serving teachings and experiences from this platform fostering self-awakening, grace and a doorway to the subtle for others. I enjoy this so much I include group sessions in every concert tour location and teach methods to choirs and staff during residencies, performance rehearsals, and speaking engagements.
For me, the practice of yoga, meditation, and sound is a way of life. It continues to shape me in ways beyond defining as the seed of light pulses in every cell, every thought, every wave of vibration. Anupaya yoga has many facets in subtly balancing (body, mind, heart, energy) into a humbled, receptive vessel of Divine consciousness simultaneously, ushering liberation to the Light of Self.
"The ocean of grace dwells in the heart...
there is no goal...
suspended in the subtle is where the path ends
but the journey never ceases"

It is comprised of kriyas, movements, bija sounds, pranayama, inner focus, devotional wisdom, and asanas (postures) designed to clear, transcend and experientially realize your connection with Supreme Consciousness...engendering states of heightened awareness, deep peace, true spiritual power, grace, creativity, and remembrance.
Your first experience may feel like a good workout with a sense of being more connected to yourSELF...clear, alive,, and radiant.

Sound Mandalas are an important part of each class.

the perfect completion for every session or workshop.
Singing enhances creative power by recognizing and exercising the unique signature of your voice.
