We will do introductions to get to know each other, share an intention, and then I will do an
Ascended Masters Oracle Card Reading to set a group intention.

Alchemy is the ability to move and transmute energy.
The class will be a journey through each energy body, using yoga asanas (poses),
pranayama (breath work), visualization, as well as therapeutic guidance to be able to identify where we hold certain energies,
and how we can calm, release, activate, or transform what is there.

I will also guide you on how to scan yourself externally, so we can better identify where we may have “blockages”.

CelestialDanceDivine Feminine Prayer

Thursday, March 21st 8-10:15pm

This workshop is for ladies to attend, but is a gift for ourselves and all of mankind.

Women-I welcome you to join me in prayer and meditation, so that we may open the portholes to the earth and receptivity, allowing for infinite gifts and possibilities. I also would like for us to focus on sending appreciation, and receiving the powerful gifts that the women who walked before us, who helped us earn the freedom we have today.

This workshop is going to be serious, but also FUN! It’s funny, but it just so seems the laws of science respond to the vibrations of joy 😉

In honor of women’s history month, the first thing that comes to my mind when I think of femininity, or women, is the most divine woman of us all-Earth.

I believe that women have an innate connection to the voice of the Earth, so I hope for myself and all of us, to allow ourselves to better use that voice, and honor the responsibility that comes with that gift.

In these times of change, I call women to join together in prayer and meditation, so we can heal the feminine aspects of ourselves, and come to a focused prayer of that for all of mankind, to help activate the Earth’s (and her inhabitants’) experience in a colorful and positive way.

I hope for us to allow our full power to flow, collectively coming to a vision as a group, to open the gates of receptivity and love.

I look forward to grounding myself more, and opening up to these infinite gifts and possibilities that are available.

Workshop Includes:

-Free flowing dance-to loosen up

-Divine femine yoga poses-to open and connect

-Guided meditation and prayer

-Song sharing

Requested Donation-$7-$infinity

PLEASE BRING A CANDLE FOR YOURSELF (one where the flame is not covered by glass)

We welcome Fruit, tea, or any healthy snack contributions.

Some days we feel excited, others calm and peaceful, and other days we can barely walk a straight line and are angry. Why? There are tons of reasons, but often we don’t consider or dismiss the power of our surrounding planets and stars and how they affect our life here on earth. I recommend checking in with what’s going on and you’ll possibly find some comfort and guidance into acceptance of all things that are real to you.

MARCH 19-20 – The SUN moves into ARIES at the Spring (or Fall Equinox in
Southern Hemisphere) 10:15 PM PDT. 5:15 AM GMT.

Aries lights our fire through April 18. There is a big energy shift at
the equinoxes. If you feel tired, don’t push yourself. Your body is
adjusting to the Earth changes.


The Aries New Moon invites us to try something new. How about waking up
to a new perspective or embarking on a new adventure?

APRIL 4 – MERCURY goes DIRECT. Mercury went retrograde March 12.

The days Mercury is retrograde and the days Mercury shifts direction are
great for meditation.

Take advantage of this inner time. Our mind is in reverse mode so we
can’t figure anything out anyway. After April 4, we will have more
clarity and we will feel like moving forward.


At this Full Moon the Aries Sun is opposite the Libra Moon. The message
is that relationships are not about the other person, but how WE are in
relationship. ME in relationship is another story!

APRIL 13 – MARS in Virgo goes DIRECT after almost 3 months retrograde
since January 23.

There is forward movement now. Hope you have cleaned out your inner and
outer closets.

APRIL 10 – PLUTO goes RETROGRADE for 5 months.

More introspection and deep rumblings expose subconscious programming
that needs to be cleared out.

SATURNis still RETROGRADE IN LIBRA until June 25.

Again, take a serious look at how YOU are in relationship. When we
change, our relationships change.

Winter is approaching; days are getting colder and grayer, sometimes wet. It’s natural that our bodies want to go into hibernation.    

Well, yoga is all about balance, so it’s time we fight the good fight and get our butts moving! The beauty of yoga is that all you need is you. We tend to use the excuse of, “Ohh, but it’s cold. I have to take a train to this yoga studio, blah, blah blah”.  Let go of any and all judgments you have of what a yoga practice is supposed to be, because you know how to move, there’s no right or wrong. You can practice right in your own apartment. If you are feeling stagnant, the best thing you can do is a brisk yoga practice, throw in a bit of bhastrika (rapid breath of fire), and focus on core work.

A great way to start your day is doing 10 rapid runs of sun salutations. To really fan your fire, stop at high plank and do 21 rounds of powerful breathing exercises— kapalbhati or bhastrika. Kapalbhati, or cleansing breath, is a forced and active exhale pumping the stomach, the inhale is passive. This breathing should only be through the nose. Bhastrika, or rapid breath of fire, is a vigorous inhale and exhale, which should be fast and full. Focus on exhaling all of the stale air out because your inhale is innate. 

Interested in increasing circulation within the whole body? Look no further than shoulder stand. She is the queen of all asanas, so she is very effective by bringing fresh blood to the lungs, heart, thyroid, helping empower these areas to release toxins avoiding typical winter illnesses. Plus, this is a fun, childlike pose to play with! Always follow up shoulder stand with fish pose, then hug the knees into the chest and take at least a one minute savasana to drink in all of the benefits.
Another rejuvenating practice is the 5 Tibetan Rites or exercises. To learn how you can empower your body’s own abilities to get your energy flowing — try yoga teacher Sarah Kline’s set.
Some great core work you can do are dolphin dives, which is like a modified downward facing dog. Start by grasping on to the outside of the elbows, plant them on the ground. You can either interlace your fingers or straighten the arms out so they are parallel with hands flat. Next you lift your hips up and back into this modified downward facing dog position. As you inhale, lengthen the body towards your hands, as you exhale push back to the modified downward facing dog. The goal is to bring the body parallel to the ground. It’s best to do around ten of these. This will also help prepare you for inversions such as headstand. Take a rejuvenating child’s pose after. 
Other powerful core asanas are plank, side plank, forearm plank, chaturanga dandasana, boat pose (which can be done with twisting, for extra challenge) and also life nerve stretch, which is a very popular kundalini exercise. For life nerve stretch, lay on your back, head, arms and legs lifted, legs should be about 6 inches off the ground and engage your rapid breath of fire for one minute. You can alternate legs or even keep both legs down while arms, head and neck are lifted. Keep the back of the neck long, chin slightly tucked. You may rest in savasana for 45 seconds. It’s recommended to do three rounds for one minute each.
So how does one crack that comforting place of stagnation? A better answer is to ask the question, what do you like about feeling stagnant? Does the space you are in allow you to be and do everything you can be and do? What is it going to take to allow that space to be available to you? 
Meditation sounds like it can be miles away from you because of all the stimulation we’re exposed to, but why not entertain yourself with a self guided visualization meditation? You can start by expressing to the forces of the universe and the heavens that you are in need of guidance to break up stagnation and allow for abundance. Ask the universe what is required to find balance and abundance. Begin to do silent self affirmations of what your heart desires, even if it doesn’t feel true to you now. This ritual practice can begin to make great transformation. You can do this for one minute, five minutes, or thirty; whatever feels right to you that day. Manifestation shows up in all kinds of ways, so with patience, allow what you desire to come to you.

Sunday 11/13 at 6pm & 8pm-2nd Chakra Celebration-Awakening our Creativity & Ability to Conceive (New Ideas)

Tuesday 11/15 at 6pm & 8pm -Hatha Vinyasa

Sundays 2 classes are going to be a 1st & 2nd Chakra celebration.
Are you hips and hamstrings tight? Do you feel a blockage in your flow of creativity and sexuality? Do you feel grounded and connected to your roots? Do you question if you are speaking from truth? Are you conceiving from a clear place?
As we clear any confusion and blockage in the lower half of the body, we will replace that space with powerful intention into these areas of the subtle body, that have so much to do with our being; through mantra (sound), meditation, dance and poses geared to further open these areas of our body on all levels. Once we clear ourselves from the ground up, it will allow us to awaken our kundalini energy to rise up. We will pour out what we don’t need, to make space to conceive new things. Come prepared to shake things up!

Are you ready to take ownership of your heart, awake and transcend the illusion of duality and separation? Light and Dark are Energies of Creation, we need both to propel us to the manifestation of our life purposes. Being a Master of Duality by integration, compassion, responsibility, discipline, respect, wisdom, passion and equilibrium, it’s what gives birth to the Avatar with in you. You’ll now be able to perform miracles in your own self and Mother Earth.. We are light and love personified. We just need some dusting, and light on our hearts…that’s all!©Meaning of 11-11-11 and the New Shift of Consciousness
