Facilitation

Holding the Invisible String is a line from my first published poem. To me the invisible string is our centre, the creative curiosity we bring to our lives, and the ground of being that ultimate gives us meaning. The invisible string is our impetus to reach out and tap into the energy of the storm.

Twenty years ago, I co-founded and developed a holistic Yoga Teacher Training school, the Akhanda Yoga approach, and later helped establish Anand Prakash Yoga Ashram in Rishikesh, India, where I lived and taught. I worked almost exclusively in Yoga Teacher Training for I over twelve years, and have taught about a thousand emerging teachers in the areas of Yoga philosophy, methodology, prenatal yoga, and in facilitating transformational experiences and rituals. I am passionate about how the poetry of presence found in Yoga Wisdom teachings can bring us back to the rich and textured moment.

Two of my favourite words are awe and wonder. I absolutely love being in circle with people, connecting, breathing and discussing how Yoga can serve us in our post-modern lives. I am thrilled to have launched two online Yoga Wisdom courses for those wishing to delve deeper into Yoga history and philosophy with me in an online education context! As a parent of two and not able to teach in the retreat context as I used to, it is exciting to have the opportunity to share my experience and deep engagement with South Asian wisdom traditions through both a self-paced model and in virtual Yoga Wisdom Circles.

I have been an adult educator in a variety of contexts and fields throughout my career and my Master’s degree in education informs how I engage with students and educational planning and design. I have a special interest in dialogue education, transformational experiences and cultivating a safe, community atmosphere in all of my courses. Teaching is truly an art, and mentoring teachers is deeply meaningful to me. In 2019, I was proud to have been a member of the Yoga Teacher Trainer Qualifications Working Group as a part of the Yoga Alliance Standards Review. In 2021, I decided to formalize the mentoring I had been doing and create a course in Becoming a Yoga Wisdom Teacher, and I’m looking forward to the journey of helping teachers learn to share this journey with others.
