Dear Friends on the Path,

If you feel a bit heavy in body, mind and soul, we must remember that it is often like this the days before the new moon and in the transition of Spring (I am feeling my friends on the east coast). This Sunday's new moon begins the festival cycle Navaratri - the ten-day practice period connected to the transition of Spring and reconnecting to the revitalization of our energy through the flow of Shakti (from the composting of winter into the new cycle). I will be offering courses during this time online, this Saturday class at Exhale, Chakra Vinyasa with Chris Tompkins and the Pre-Natal Vinyasa Shakti Sadhana on the culminating day.

I am offering our bi-annual "Embodying Shakti - Spring Navaratri" online course for women (and men) beginning tomorrow with our web-book of practices and background, live-call,  (you can start on Sunday) with your choice of 10 to 30 minute shakti sadhana practices along with a great worldwide community. The fees support our in-depth archive site and staff.   

May we all continue to evolve with grace on this journey of life...

Keep tending the inner fire
Love all ways,image

Fluid Power: The Art of Living Flow at Esalen, April 20-25


As spring emerges, we immerse ourselves in the power of Esalen’s healing waters to thaw, rejuvenate, and awaken into the new cycle. In this five-day retreat, we will create a “living flow ashram” under the full moon as the Esalen dance dome (aka Leonard Pavilion) becomes a place for yoga, energetic vinyasa, movement, meditation, and recalibration of our system to the rhythms of life.
