The practices of yoga and meditation vary far and wide - with an almost unquantifiable array of teachers and modalities spread across the globe. Here, in my humble neck of the woods,
I offer these practices with the primary intention of creating a space that simply guides people home.
Regardless of how we meet - in a gentle movement practice, yin yoga, vinyasa, guided meditation, in a clinical setting, or at a retreat - plan to step into a deeply held container designed to remind you of all that already rests within, using the practices as guides home. Yoga and meditation have proven to be powerful ways back to the center of one’s self. For when we soften our eyes and are finally given permission to be right here - in this consciousness and in this skin - we once again, even for a moment, become free.
Yoga and meditation classes are offered weekly throughout the East Bay in pubic studios, and for private groups in clinical and non-clinical settings . You can also find me offering workshops and guided classes at various events regularly around the Bay Area, along with extended destination retreats throughout the year.
The Immersion is designed for those who: desire to come back to the center of themselves, are tired of being told what is “wrong” with them, and are ready to uncover the teacher within.
this is a guide to uncovering and calling home the many voices and resources within.
Together, we will explore and uplift these inner- resources and allies, while also exploring the voices that work to keep you small, safe, and in suffering. All of these voices play roles in the grand dance of the psyche. They carry maps to take us in, through, and beyond.
The immersion blends tools in modern therapeutic treatment with alternative modalities to create powerful opportunities for meaningful change and true healing. The development of the Immersion stems from years of working closely with women and in so, discovering how necessary a multi-approach journey is in order to truly experience healing and real change. Therefore, we will work with a variety of modalities that include and are not limited to: social and cultural exploration, depth psychology, soul-centric healing and wholing, somatic experiencing, yoga, meditation, health and media literacy, nature-based guidance and practices, and so on.
The highest intention of the Immersion is created to support you in realizing the innate wisdom that always rests within.
What we need now are new stories to share with each other, new tales to live into the world, which is to say, stories to make real by living our own versions of them.

As we gather in community - small or large, with family or strangers - we shift something in the fabric of our being. In a culture where it has become far too easy to stay home and practice, dance, listen, learn, and so on, it is almost revolutionary to choose to enter into communal experiences. This a powerful time to remember that while we are responsible for our own well-being, that we can simultaneously be supported and uplifted in relationship with others!
I hope that you join me for a gathering, as sometimes the greatest medicine is seeing the kind eyes of another.
