We have all heard the typical cues, such as “breathe” and “relax” but these directives only take us so far. The Yoga Sutra offer insights that transform the way we practice forever.

The Sūtra combined with āsana, reach into the very inner fiber and workings of one’s being-ness. Weaving the metaphysical teachings with the physical practices, we come into alignment with our truest aspirations. Authentic practice becomes elevated into an integrated experience both on and off the mat.

Approached skillfully, āsana can prepare the psyche and nervous system to process information that previously had been too much for us to handle. In this way, the āsana provide a context to look at the content within our mental, physical and emotional bodies, providing an opportunity for release and personal transformation.

Unlock the Psychosomatic Knots of the Granthi:
A Journey of PersonaL Breakthrough 

Therapeutic Asana, Pranayama & Yoga Sutra Inquiry
prerecorded classes

Class 1 ~ Brahma Granthi - low back & sacrum 
Class 2 ~ Vishnu Granthi - shoulders, chest, upper back
Class 3 ~ Rudra Granthi - neck & headaches

The Granthi are psychic restrictions to our  instinctive, emotional & intellectual wisdom. 

We experience them somatically as knots of tension in our low back & sacral area,
between the shoulders, or neck tension & headaches.


The psychosomatic tensions of the Granthi call us to pay attention &
appreciate their pull as a loving call to get clear & listen to our inner wisdom. 


An adventure of breakthrough, we unlock the Granthi's tensions when we ask the right questions to bring core truths to light. ​Join in an exploration of classical & innovative Yoga practices woven with timeless Yoga Sutra wisdom. Discover key insights to personal freedom in a life-affirming exploration of Yoga as embodied awareness of living full-blooded in mind, body & heart.

Sankalpa is a statement that reflects our true nature and inner calling that requires no change or action. Yoga's practices help us find resolution by settling our body and mind. When we land in our true brilliance, we can hear our heart's deepest desire. This articulation of our highest truth is known as Sankalpa, and empowers us to be absolutely alive and remain true in the nitty gritty moments of daily life.


Join me in this New Year weekend celebration of Classical and innovative Yogasana and Sutra Psychology in a life-affirming exploration of how Yoga serves to establish embodied awareness of unfolding our unique gifts in the world.
