Yoga for the Asymmetric Pelvis

You are invited to a special three hour workshop on Yoga for the Asymmetric Pelvis on April 29th, from 1 to 4 pm, at One Center Yoga. Who is this workshop for? This workshop is ideal if you experience hip pain that is often one sided, corresponding low back pain, or a catch in your ‘giddy-up’! Also excellent for hip differences from scoliosis or post-childbirth.

On Friday, morning I arrived early to bring roses and see him one last time to say goodbye. He looked peaceful and seemed to smile when I recited a prayer for him. I sat beside him for a time and read from the Tibetan book of the dead. “His family and close friends gathered at his home as his body was carried away amidst rose petals, tears, and hugs. His body was 38...

Yoga for Core Strength

Create Stability, Balance, and Ease Join me to explore the ever elusive and desirable ‘core strength’ March 25th at One Center Yoga from 1:00-3:00 pm.

The Body Speaks Its Mind

When Thought Manifests I love my students. They’re sincere hearts, their intelligence and education, their willingness to be present for continued healing and transformation. During the election season we all faced a challenge to our emotions and sense of safety. Many of us put in the extra effort to help get other citizens out to vote. All that was interesting enough, however the Monday yoga class following the election was most interesting to me. As a Back Care Specialist I am aware of how emotions play a role in back pain. It seems...
