Our Creation Story
I was invited to a farewell dinner for a very special friend. As she cooked, guests took turns sitting at the little table in the kitchen; it was covered with a variety of tarot decks. We sat at the table, picked a card and read out loud from the accompanying book. Prompted by the pictures and meanings of the cards, we spoke of our dreams, our aspirations & our past. I was moved to announce in this room full of strangers, “I want to make some cards of my own.” My desire to create a beautiful deck of Yantra cards and share their wisdom, manifested.
My passion is to inspire seekers to rediscover their creative self through personal inquiry, effortlessness, ritual, sangha and sadhana. I have been studying and teaching yoga in the Sri Viddya linage since 2005; initiated by my teacher Yogarupa Rod Stryker. In 2015, I completed my Masters degree at Pacifica Graduate Institute in Humanities with an emphasis on Depth Psychology. This endeavor solidified my belief that creativity is one of the most essential tools to living a joyous and purposeful life. I enjoy sharing these teaching through ritual and creativity, as these are some of the most ancient tools used to explore the depth of our soul.
I have also studied Restorative Yoga extensively and the practical applications of yoga therapy with Judith Lasater. I am grateful to have studied the art of yantras with Pieter Weltevrede & Mavis Gewant. I try to travel to India yearly, where I am re-inspired to share these teachings.
