Monthly meet up next session:
 Saturday January 18th 1pm - 2:30
1805 Larch Avenue
Cincinnati, OH 45224
(5 min drive from northside)

The class is open to all levels - I will guide chi cultivation techniques, somatic  exercises and improvisational exercises to allow us to open to our intuitive creative body.


We practice asana pranayama, meditation and kriya techniques primarily from the Ghosh and vinyasa systems. Merging breath and movement with strong alignment (form) to create maximum function of asana, ease, stillness and strength in a balancing flow for all systems of the body. Beyond form and function lies meaning/intention and we are called back again and again to investigate and come to know the self. All levels of practice will be honored and postures can be modified to create stability and generate benefits regardless of the degree of "depth" one chooses to explore in each pose. This is strong physical practice that moves energies dynamically. You will sweat, please come hydrated ( room temp at  79-90 this allows for a safe environment in which to explore deeply) You will be challenged and supported in this study of the mind/body/spirit = science of self. These practices can be a wonderful foundation to start a lifetime of daily practice - and tools for health, happiness and - liberation.

In this practice we will look at the beginner and intermediate series of the Ghosh system and incorporate many sun salutes and postures from the primary and second Ashtanga vinyasa  series. You will learn how to utilize bandhas - muscle contractions to direct energy flow,  pranayama - techniques to regulate breath and dristi - gaze/focus/concentration/intention.
ultimately a state of meditation/union with the divine
self realization

all levels and bodies welcome  

Invest in your well being. Support your community
These practices are designed to offer detailed attention to the individual in a small group setting.

I encourage you to develop a steady personal practice. 
Yoga is a Moksha Shastra ( liberation science)

prACTicing the ART of spiritual healing and expression of the full spectrum of life.

I have been guiding yoga classes professionally since 2004 and have over 25 years of movement/dance /mind body breath training and experience. 

I specialize in finding a regenerative, safe and challenging practice for all to participate and flourish within a group atmosphere. As well, I am available for private lessons. I love to help students develop daily home practice, movement techniques and forms to heal nourish and balance body and mind.
.  I am thankful to ALL my teachers. 

Hatha Yoga prACTice is a discipline.  Entering ones life can be a daily struggle. Rituals help us find that entrance.Yoga can be a means to reconnect you to what is essential. I practice so to be more open, awake and available to my loves and the processes that make me feel alive and free which most often include dance, music, art, nature, family, my dog and cat and working with children.

 I believe relationship between student and teacher or guide is an essential component in learning/training. and dedicated practice. and love. always.A SpiRitual practice can be looked at as a ritual way of entering ones true self.


Our Collective is named after my beloved dog Bunny. See her story here

We have occupied 3 different spaces in the vibrant Northside community.

Our first space was located 2 doors down from The Comet. This video was made in dedication to our time spent there and the first four years of this Collective.
