In addition to master’s degrees in neuroscience and special education, I am a life long spiritual seeker. I have studied and practiced many, many years in a variety of schools of yoga, Eastern philosophy, Ayurvedic living principles, and Hindu mythology. Most recently I identify with Rajanaka yoga philosophy, a Tantric philosophy. My primary teachers are Douglas Brooks and Sarahjoy Marsh. My yoga training and practice have granted me space and quietness of mind enough to feel the rhythm and pulsation of life in everything and everyone around me. It is this pulsation that hooks me like a drug and draws me into the dance of relationship with life: the sorrow, the grief, the ecstasy, the passion, the work, the need, the trees, the being. This state I recognize as Goddess, and I celebrate with each passing breath. This state I recognize as God, and I celebrate with each passing movement. This state I celebrate with each interaction, each class.
