New Moon Intentions

New moons are a good time to plant seeds of intention into the psyche. Sink into this moment, sink into the heart and inquire within, “Where is my attention needed?” “Is there anything I need to release?” “What am I to embody at this time?” Personally, I feel that it is time to release self-doubt…

Growing pains

I’ve noticed that a lot of people attach to and identify with their pain, and I recognize this pattern in my own life. It is often done subconsciously through the perpetuation of energetic and physical holding patterns. Memories of previous pain can leave imprints in our muscles, our connective tissue, our energy fields, and even…

Trauma trouble?

So you want to get in touch with yourself, you want to access a sense of freedom, peace, joy, and fulfillment in your life, but perhaps you’re a little nervous about turning inside because you don’t know what repressed memories and ideas you’ll find lurking in the shadows of your subconscious.

What is Float Therapy?

We have five primary senses: sight, sound, taste, feel, and smell. Each of these senses is experienced viscerally, through the physical body.

Learn the Art of Healing Touch

Touch can be a touchy subject. We all want it, we crave it, and in fact NEED it to thrive both emotionally and physiologically. Yet, we sparsely talk about it. Touch can be a really difficult thing to ask for when we need it or to reject when we don’t. Many of us feel awkward…

Where Attention Goes, Energy Flows

When asked how to begin the path and practice of transcendental meditation, founder of TM, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi answered, “Intend to have a better life.

The Function of Pain

I observe a lot of pain in this world, internally and externally. A lot of people come to me because they want help dealing with their pain, and by “dealing,” I mean that they either want to eliminate it or create more of it. What people often overlook is the fact that pain is inevitable….

Healing as an Art

We are all artists in our own right. Being an artist means being creative, and my approach to healing is just that… different from what our culture typically considers medicine. While injuries and medical conditions can most certainly be addressed through yoga, massage, energy work, meditation, and herbal remedies, these modalities are most beneficial when…

Why You Should Talk to Your Feet

Ever wonder why your neck hurts, why your shoulders cave inwards, or where that low back pain is coming from? Have you ever asked your feet? Do you know where or how you distribute the weight of your body while standing, walking, or running? Ask your feet. Feel where your feet come into contact with…

Freedom From Within

In essence, yoga is the practice of stilling the patterns of consciousness, fluctuations in the mind. Mental perceptions and associations have the power to color our experiences, distorting our understanding of self, other, and nature as a whole. Only by stilling the patterns of mind can one attain true freedom from the chaos and churning…
