FOR ROCK & RESTORE: An uplifting ( aka FUN!) and deeply restorative movement and yoga class.

 We spend the first 15  minutes moving and grooving to high energy music to loosen our knots and then we transition into a grace and strength building slow fluid (moderate) yoga practice. I've made fabulous playlists so the music will support, but not intrude upon, your practice. My aim is for you to leave the studio feeling grounded, expansive and filled with restored vitality.

This class is appropriate for those with an existing yoga practice and/or beginners.

Mindfulness Practices for Everyday Life Series (MPFEL)

Offered Through The Living Seed

2023 Series dates: TBA

To enroll:

We all have an enormous inner capacity to cultivate resilience, insight, behavioral changes and deepening equanimity.  

We don’t need to seek hidden caves or climb high peaks to gain more expansive perspectives on life and its inevitable ups and downs,  

and we don't need to spend endless hours on meditation cushions separated from the very challenges that trip us up.

We can learn to meet life, on life’s terms, with compassion, increased focus deeper insight and skill. We can do all of the

above by  intentionally inclining/training our attention and actions towards deepening mindfulness in our everyday lives which essentially means that we learn to

meet life as life shows up with increased grace, wisdom and skillful actions.

I've offered this popular and innovative series since 2005; the series combines mindfulness practices, yogic philosophy, evidence-based psychology and behavioral science to help you build  yourself an effective, user-friendly tool kit that you can utilize in your everyday life. You will be given assignments/home practices to do between sessions

which will help you integrate the material into your mind, heart, actions and intentions.

If you have questions or concerns I will happily speak with you so don't hesitate to contact me at or through the contact option

here and we can set up a time to talk.

This series is also available for schools , businesses, and community groups and can be modified to meet your specific needs.

In this 3 session, highly focused, series you will work with one positive behavior that you wish-deep in your bones-to plant firmly into your daily life. You will be

given specific instructions, tools and practices that will help you firmly plant new patterns into your life that gain traction. 

Here's what will be happening:


You will define your clear, measurable heartfelt desire/goal.

You will be given concrete suggestions for incrementally designing your new pattern(s) that will both set the foundation for working towards your goal and

integrate it into your daily life.

You will excavate your habitual patterns of thinking that influence your actions/behaviors/emotional cascades and utilize tools from cognitive psychology to
