Hello Beloveds!

How are you? We are without question living in extremely uncertain times. We are now more 6 months into the pandemic/shelter in place can you believe it?!

It’s been an adjustment for me to take and teach classes exclusively online. While ZOOM is a nice way to stay connected, nothing compares to seeing your beautiful faces at various co-working spaces, gyms, yoga + pilates studios, spas, theaters,  museums, dance floors etc. My head is already  spinning from daily news headlines and  then the news of our dear Black Panther Chadwick Boseman losing his battle with cancer at the tender age of 43. URGH!!! Dear God! Such a talented brother. He set a good example of using his talents and God given gifts to the utmost.
Rest Easy Dear Brother. 



Right now I am certain that we can witness and observe our lives through the subtle practice of breathing consciously ( pranayama), meditation , yoga and the healing arts. From time to time I look for the silver lining in everything.
The month of September is when I celebrate my anniversary of moving to California. I moved here on an International Holiday... Queen Beyonce Giselle Knowles Birthday September 4th 2012. So here I am celebrating 8 years in the Bay Area. I’ll resist the urge to fawn over how the state of the world leaves me yearning for so much. Instead I will celebrate the growth that has come with living in California for almost a decade
: )


I started teaching yoga 13 years ago in 2007 in Philadelphia, PA and continued teaching when I moved back to my hometown Washington D.C. 2009-2012. 

My deep study of Hatha Yoga and Buddhism while living in California has offered me so much guidance and clarity around living my dharma. I’m so grateful, humbled and honored to share what I learn with my BELOVED students.

Beyonce is a the current  Black Queen of Pop music. PERIOD! No, not everything she does is noteworthy but she deserves the crown for putting elbow grease into her love of the performing arts since childhood and now she has cemented her place in pop culture. Can’t deny THAT! Beyonce reminds me to be regal. 

Here is a photo of me my senior year of High School in a Maryland suburb of Washington DC. The African American English teacher
( a Howard University Grad!) who lead the Black Student Union at my High School insisted that I not only be in the opening procession for the end of the year show but that I would also be the Queen carried on the shoulders of my brethren. I suffered from severe lack of self confidence in grade school and most of adolescents. I think she saw something in me that I did not see in myself.To be honest I did not develop a strong sense of self-esteem until my late 20’s when I discovered yoga and the healing arts. LOL! Dang.... where does the time go????!!!
