I dabbled in a few yogic forms before delving deeply into the sacred and powerful Kundalini Yoga. A major shift ocurred during one class in particular that ignited in me a desire to share this “householder’s” yoga of breath work, kriyas (a series of exercises), mantras and meditation to address every human condition imaginable and to give one clear steps to open the way for release, self-mastery and spiritual liberation.
I consider myself to be a spiritual warrior. My rallying cry is “know thyself.” The adversary is inactivity in that pursuit and the charge is to meet the challenges of life with grace and the perception that such tests are opportunities from which lessons can be learned and utilized for higher self-advantage.
I have been practicing Kundalini Yoga since 2001 and teaching since 2008. I am certified by the Kundalini Research Institute, Yoga As Taught By Yogi Bhajan, and I am a member of the International Association of Kundalini Yoga Teachers. I am especially grateful to impart to teens, the elderly, incarcerated youth, the formerly homeless and people from all walks of life in the African Diaspora, the knowledge of a “way through every block”, the encouragement to try something that will work for them and the promise of assistance along their spiritual paths.
