"Wouldn't it be powerful if you fell in love with yourself so deeply that you would do just about anything if you knew it would make you happy? This is precisely how much life loves you and wants you to nurture yourself. The deeper you love yourself, the more the universe will affirm your worth." - Alan Cohen from Moon Circles by Tara Isis Gerris
I am a self-healing and self-awareness enthusiast, but I wasn’t always and it is not easy and often very uncomfortable. Like many of us, I was not taught to feel my feelings. I was taught that my emotions were too much and to shove them away. When I was in university, my doctor recommended that I try yoga. I went to a Hatha Yoga class and absolutely hated it, it was too slow. I decided to try Kundalini Yoga and I was hooked instantly. This was the beginning of my yoga journey. Here I am almost two decades later of practicing all styles and with over 500 hours of certified study. I went from the most energetic practices to the most slow practices. Each style served my spirit and wellness at different times in my life. It took time to find my home in sharing the practice, but after studying Restorative and then Yoga Nidra and discovering that I could bring the two together to create a glorious healing practice, I knew this was one of my gifts to share. I share this practice in my own way because it has worked for me and it is my most authentic way to offer healing to others. Stillness, intuition, compassion, feeling, breath and love is how I describe my sharing and what I guide practitioners towards. It is not about getting it right, it is not about perfection, it is about being yourself, getting to know yourself better, and loving yourself wherever you are. Aside from yoga, I am an artist, a farmer, a doggy mama and I run a non-profit organization and manage a band with my partner. I also assist my family in our furniture business. I wear a lot of “hats” and everything I do is for the love of it. Unleashing my creativity and creating sacred adornments has been very empowering for me. It is soul uplifting to design and put together something beautiful, powerful and healing. Each piece is unique and intended to connect the wearer to their eternal beauty, soul power and healing capabilities. Each creation also has it's own mantra attached to it that comes to me as I am creating. I hope you will explore my jewellery and power piece designs, and love them as much as I do!
