My journey with Yoga begin with Radha Yoga teachings in 1998, the kind of Kundalini Yoga where we explore the chakra’s in regards to our daily lives and share our findings with each other. It was many months before I spoke. I was overwhelmed and spiritually sick. I didn’t know where to start. These teachings saved my life
In 1999 my employer sent me to Yogaville for a Yoga for the Special Child Training with Sonia Sumar from Brazil. That incredible time led to my first month long teacher training in Yucatan Mexico with Integral Hatha Yoga in 2000.
In 2016 I took Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training – I no longer teach this style of Yoga as Yogi Bhajan was exposed for abusive behaviour. My gratitude to Sat Kaur who can be quoted as saying” Under no circumstance will I turn any of you out to be teachers who will project your shit onto others.” She made sure we faced the shadows surfacing in ourselves. Sat Kaur taught us well in so many ways.
I participated in two Beyond Addiction Intensives as participant and once as a small group leader. Beyond Addiction is a collaboration of Sat Dharam Kaur and Dr Gabor Mate.
I am currently immersed in Lineage based Tantric Yoga with Shakti Temple Arts as well as being grateful for the wise mentorship of Ananda Xenia Shakti, Shivaniji and Aja Sole Shah. Their wells and walks of Yogic ways are deeply rooted in India.
Since 2017 ish the bulk of my Yoga facilitation has happened within the Drug and Alcohol Recovery centre I work within.
I have participated in at least a 1000 hours of yogic training and continue to pilgrimage to the birthplace of Yoga, Mother India with so my gratitude in my heart for the teachings.
