Om Muktidayai Namah

I Bow to She who gives Liberation…

New Moon support to all on the path.
Spring Navaratri begins tomorrow for a 10 day journey with the New Moon (see our online offering). I will be with Lama Tsultrim and the great community of InsightLA. If you are local, this is an opportunity not to be missed. 

On Thursday, I am off to see be with my root teacher Daniel Odier and the wonderful community of Netherlands at Yoga Moves and Svati, Nele, Sonja and other great Prana Flow teachers there. Shiva Kumar and Else will be joining us too.

Demetri will be in Boston teaching PranaDandaYoga (see below). 

We will be back at Exhale and home for the month of May so we look forward to seeing our local friends.

Love all ways,


Feeding Your Demons Workshop with Lama Tsultrim Allione, Wednesday April 10

imageInspired by the ancient practice of Chöd, “Feeding Your Demons" is a five-step process created by Lama Tsultrim Allione that allows one to offer compassion and understanding to one's own inner demons rather than engaging in battle and struggle with them. This develops the potential for deep healing and allows the psyche to move from polarization toward integration. The process is of great benefit when working with a wide variety of both personal and collective demons including addictions, physical and mental illnesses, fear, anger, relationship challenges, and other dilemmas of modern life.

Location of drop-off: 245 S Main St, Venice CA 90291

ABOUT Free the Girls
By partnering with safe houses and after-care facilities, we provide an opportunity for women rescued from sex trafficking to earn a living selling second-hand clothing while going to school, getting healthy, and caring for their families.  Selling clothes allows them to work as much or as little as their school schedule permits.  

Let’s face it, ladies: the back of your underwear drawer is most likely a graveyard of bras you don’t wear anymore or that never fit right in the first place. By contrast, second-hand clothing is a profitable market in many countries around the world. Bras are sought after items. Some of the girls in our program are making 5x the minimum wage in their community by selling bras! And even better, bras provide an opportunity for these women to work with other women, since they have a history of being abused and used by men.
