Thank you to the twenty students that came to learn to teach the practice they love at our wonderful Yoga Teacher Training at Wainwright House in Rye, NY over the last two years. It was a fulfilliing experience for me to work with such wonderful students and teachers. I was blessed to have led this training along with Paula Heitzner and Patty Holmes, both seasoned, creative, dynamic amazing teachers. I'm sad that this chapter ended, but I am on to a couple of exciting new chapters.

One new chapter includes the continuing of the Medicine Wheel group at my office in Mamaroneck. Please come to the Medicine Wheel Group on Saturday, December 30th at 3:30pm. It will then resume in the new year. The focus of this group is "Dreaming and Acting Beyond the Patriarchy". We will explore the directions on the wheel, discuss and pray for a world with consciousness of our necessary and healthy relationship with Mother Earth and all beings. We will ask questions such as "How can we communicate and act in a "power-with" way, rather than a "power-over" way?" We will make prayer ties and talk about how we can bring what we are feeling and thinking and discovering out into the world. This is especially important in these challeging and dynamic times. Set an intention for 2018!

I have acquired a credential to offer continuing education classes for yoga teachers so that they may meet their required CE hours. I have several classes prepared for 2018, offered on the third Saturday of the month from 2:30 to 5pm. The workshops provide much individualized attention as they are limited to 5 students.The fee for each workshop is $50. You may take all of them or just one. They include:

January 20, 2018: Balancing the Vata Dosha: Grounding and Regulating the Nervous System/Anxiety

February 17, 2018: Working with Yoga to Release the Myofascial System

March 17, 2018: Yoga for Students with Neck and Back Pain

April 21, 2018: Teaching Yoga to Women Who Have Been Harassed or Abused

Please call 914-420-2523 to register for these classes. You do not have to be a teacher if you are a serious yoga student interested in the subject.  

In addition to my other classes, I am excited to be teaching Ayurvedic Yoga on Friday mornings at 10:30am in my office, 1600 Harrison Ave. At the moment this class is full and one space is available in both the Thursday night class and the Saturday class. Call 914-420-2523 to register.

This is an invitation to join us for the Medicine Wheel group which is now being offered at my office 1600 Harrsison Avenue on December 30, 2017 at 3:30pm. This group will then resume in the new year. Be part of this nurturing, healing group while becoming more aware of power-over dynamics and learning to embrace a power-with Mother Earth way of life. (We will continue this group through this next year, meeting regularly on the last Saturday of the month, exploring indigenous Medicine themes and subjects, moving around the directions of the wheel season by season.) Please call 914-420-2523 to register.

Thank you for coming to the Full Moon Ancestral Spirit Medicine Wheel Ceremony group at 1600 Harrison Ave out in the beautiful moonlight in Mamaroneck held on Friday, August 31 at 7:30pm. This sacred ceremony was shared with me by Eve Bruce, Shaman MD while I was in Ireland. It intended to rekindle our respect and honour of those who walked this world before us. I shared energy from the stone circles and other sacred sites I visited in Ireland. In the spirit of our ongoing group we checked in with the Wheel and the sacred directions, recognizing the aspects of our selves that need healing, and connected with support and healing. We ended our group sending out our prayers to all beings. 

The next therapeutic Belly Dance workshop will be at 1600 Harrison Avenue on the last Saturday of the month at 2:30pm. Please bring a dance belt and veil if you have them. The workshop on 12/30/17 is held at 2:30pm. It will take place on the last Saturday of the month and resume in the new year. It is an hour long workshop suitable for students of belly dance who would like to explore it as a spiritual experience in ceremony. Beginners are also welcome. This workshop is a great way to explore the elements of creation in your body, enhance your health, beauty, passion and peace as well as just have fun.  

Most of the Birth of Venus classes now take place at The Rockledge Building, 1600 Harrison Avenue, Suite 203A in Mamaroneck, NY, our new home. There is plenty of parking and it is very cozy, quiet and clean. We are located on the Rye Neck/Harrison border. Call 914-420-2523 to register. Students register in advance on a monthly basis. Occassionally drop ins are available. There may be space available in pre-existing classes, but you do have to call find out. Semi-private classes can be arranged.

I look forward to continuing to share the techniques I have learned in Peru and at Kripalu, Cape Cod Institute, Omega and the Open Center with all my students and clients through the coming year. This includes the Nine Rites of Munay-Ki, or Andean Q'ero Rites of the Shaman's Path. I received these rights from four powerful Andean Shamans with the understanding that I would pass them on to help support others to clear their luminous energy fields and connect with Spirit in this pivotal time of human crises and evoloution. According to the prophecy, together we will witness the birth of a new form of human on the planet and the dawn of a new civilization. When you are given the Rites of the Munay-Ki you are having the seeds of healing and Spirit planted within you which you then nurture through awareness, meditation and the fire ceremony. The Rites are available in the Medicine Wheel group and at the fire ceremonies (by prior arrangement). The seeds can then be nurtured through these classes/groups or in individual sessions. I am also happy to share what I have learned these past few years about IFS therapy, sensory-motor experiencing, trauma treatment, DBT, myofascial release, SE and mindfulness as well as a deeper exploration of yoga from the exquisite, powerful Angela Farmer. I also have learned quite a bit through the teachings and presence of Lewis Mehl-Madrona, MD this past year.

If you have accessed us through ChakrasinShamanism.com or FiresofTransformation.org, related information is available on their respective pages.

We offer weekly classes in yoga, belly dancing and shamanic healing. Individual yoga, myofascial release massage, meditation and healing sessions are also available. Individual and couples therapy are available by appointment.

My new office is located in the Rockledge building, 1600 Harrison Avenue, suite 203A, still in Mamaroneck (Rye Neck), just off of Boston Post Rd. There is plenty of parking at my new location. If you are coming from NYC, you can take the train to Harrison, turn right coming off the train, walk a few feet, turn left onto Harrison Avenue.....and take a brisk walk or a very short taxi ride to 1600, on the left about a half mile down the road.
