She has deepened her practice since, learning from friends, therapists and many mentors like Heatherash Amara (The Warrior Goddess Training), Stefania Serafina (Embodiment through movement & intuitive dancing), Karen Brody (Daring to Rest with Yoga Nidra) and Sara Avant Stover (The Way of the Happy Woman.)

My passion for Yoga and its profound effects in my own life inspired me to be part of this Teacher Training. It is truly my greatest joy to offer this program. There is nothing more satisfying than to sit with others that love yoga and explore these teachings. Teaching is part of remaining a student.
My mission is to empower students with yogic tools to support them live their most awake and fulfilling lives. I invite you to be part of a safe setting and welcoming ambiance with a supportive system for self exploration, self-inquiry, and learning.
I spent three years in India under the direct guidance of Swami Vidyananda, founder of Yoga Alliance International and was humbled yet honored to receive the grand master level in Transformational Hatha Yoga, Pranayama and Meditation. My training allowed me to absorb the ancient roots of Yoga and now I am excited to share what I learned in hopes that others may benefit from Yoga.
It has been my experience that dedicated students make excellent Yoga Teachers! If you approach this program whole-heartedly you will come out transformed. Through your own experience you will tap into your true potential and true self. I am calling all those that want to be a light in the world, the children of the earth want to make a difference and help heal the planet.

Transformational Hatha Yoga System
What is Transformational Hatha Yoga?
Transformational yoga is a powerful system of yoga techniques that help us center and balance our lives in a way that keeps us naturally happy, healthy and emotionally stable. Based on the premise that every individual has the capacity to continuously experience pure consciousness characterized by good health, emotional balance, mental and spiritual clarity. Transformational Yoga stresses the practice and awareness of key yogic postures and techniques. Its main aim is to purify the built-up toxins laying within the five layers of our being an activate our dormant energy (kundalini) resulting in spiritual awakening. This integral system was developed in order to activate inner resources that allow the individual to live in a state of equilibrium, which lightens the pressures of contemporary living. A carefully selected set of asana postures is practiced in order to stretch and strengthen the physical body. This sequence of asanas opens and cleanses the seven chakras (life energy centers), which regulate our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being. However, Transformational Yoga is much more than just asana exercises. While hatha yogic postures are practiced for the physical body, pranayama breathing techniques, mantra chanting, and meditation are also an essential part of this holistic yogic system. These techniques work simultaneously in order to purify and energize the chakras and balance the subtle prana energies. As a result, the effects of Transformational Yoga practice are felt immediately and are carried over into every day life bringing equilibrium and serenity to all levels of our being.
Four key aspects of transformational yoga:
Asanas (yogic postures) - stretch and strengthen the body
Pranayama (breathing techniques) - detoxify and balance emotions
Mantra (chants)- focus and silence the mind while awakening the chakras
Meditation - brings awareness of our true Self through observation
How is Transformational Yoga different from other types of yoga?
Most styles of yoga focus their efforts in one specific direction. For example, all types of Hatha yoga focus on the physical body as its instrument of perfection and realization, while Raja yoga concentrates on the mind or mental body. In a holistic yoga practice, such as Transformational Yoga, the most effective techniques are combined and included to bring about complete transformation of the individual at the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels. The most powerful technique's drawing from hatha, tantra, raja, bhakti, mantra, and kundalini yoga have been brought together while developing this innovative yogic system. By using pranayama breathing, concentration, meditation and mantra an effective purification and activation of the chakras takes place. Thus Transformational Yoga works at a deeper level to release the toxins that have been accumulated through a stressful lifestyle, emotional and mental frustration. By removing these blockages, the stagnant energy can be circulated and rise up to transform our natures. While asanas are the main instrument for purification of the physical body, pranayama is used for purification of the energy body. In addition, growth of awareness progresses through the positive vibrations generated through mantra chanting, which is fundamental in purifying the psyche body. Mindful meditation techniques are used to transform the mental body, improving awareness and the powers of observation. Therefore, Transformational Yoga manages to bring all of these essential instruments together in order to bring about tangible and enduring results.
