Yoga Journal Conference: Estes Park, CO

Yoga Journal Conference Sept 22-25 2016

Assisting Tias Little at the Yoga Journal Conference this fall in Colorado was a valuable experience in understanding how adjusting and assisting is just as communicative as teaching the class itself. The art of touch while understanding the energetics of the pose can be truly healing. While working as an assistant, I was able to observe Tias work while also being of service to students- discovering that as teachers, we are laying down the ground work for each practitioner to experience themselves. 

The following workshops and day-longs allowed for the students to first settle in energetically with meditation, take flight with arm balancing classes to experience their fire energy, and finally into deeper workshops to connect to our subtle body. 

  • The Alchemy of Silence: A one day retreat
  • Flight of the Crane
  • Getting to the Bone
  • Unleash Your Life through Nadis
  • Sky is the Limit

 The Yoga Journal Conference was a union of inspiring teachers in the mountains. Each teacher I took a class from brought a different perspective to this fruitful subject. I was finally able to take classes from teachers in distant locations: Dharma Mittra, Judith Hanson Lasater, or Kathryn Budig. Deeply appreciative of this experience. 

Farewell San Francisco

As a few of you may have heard, I'll be moving away from San Francisco... and consequently, I will no longer be holding classes at Moxie as of February 13th. I have enjoyed the last 8 years in SF watching the city change... watching myself change. San Francisco introduced me to the practice of yoga and food culture. Here, my curiosity about our relationship to nature and learning of our own true nature began. My move to New Mexico is inspired by the ability to dive in deep with these subjects. 

My partner and I will be continuing /SHED, the dinner project we began in Marin, back to his hometown of Taos where he can return to his native roots and we can create a more permanent establishment. Along with this, I will be continuing my studies of yoga with Master Teachers Tias & Surya Little of Prajna Yoga in Santa Fe, New Mexico allowing me to give deeper offerings in my teaching. 

It has been such a pleasure to teach in San Francisco and to have been a part of the Moxie community. It is an honor to be a teacher on your path of yoga. Thank you to my teachers and the  students who continued to come to class reassuring me of my path. 

As a Farewell Class, I'll be hosting a special 2 hour Advanced Practice tying together the physical practice, breath work, and meditation on SAT February 13th 5:30-7:30pm at Moxie. RESERVE your SPOT.
