Welcome to the world...


Welcome to the world.


It was never meant to know how to be.

It just happened.

Just like you and I...


Soft hearted, or sweet tempered.

Rough, jagged, and uneven.

It was meant to exist in its purest and realest form.

In its honest form.


Just like you and I.


Earth, like a parent, is disciplinary.

It shows us a side of life we don't always agree with.


It teaches us patience, from the slow sprout of a flower.

Wildness, from the animals that run free.

Joy, from the sun that illuminates a new day.

Energy, from the wind and the ocean, calm and restless at times.



and about our own personal ignorance as humans.


So welcome to the world.


It just happened.

Just like you and I.

Yoga is my therapy, movement is my medicine, peace is my goal.

 

I experienced the loss of my father right before my first year of college. 

 

I was leaving home, moving to NYC to pursue an education and a career in art. At the same time, I was experiencing the death of a parent. 

 

I was caught between two feelings.

 

What was once the excitement and ecstasy of taking on the biggest adventure of my life was suddenly replaced with trauma, loneliness, and fear.

 

I needed to shut the world off for a minute. It was all going too fast...

 

I decided to start taking yoga to find some stillness, some clarity, a moment of quiet before leaving to New York that summer.

 

I didn't understand much of it then other than the silence that it brought my mind lead to some healing in my heart. Little did I know this practice would change my entire life.

 

I want you to know that healing is possible. Its a journey.

 

I hope that through my sharing of personal experiences with these rituals and practices, you are able to heal those wounds, and become stronger.

 

 

 

I see you. I hear you. I'm with you.
