The radiance of beauty always comes from within, that I believe to the core of my being. And the outer expression of our inner light is always a perfect compliment to our spirit. The honoring of our divinity comes in many forms. Anything from a sacred circle of friends, to a yoga retreat to restore and rejuvenate your soul, to the adornment of fine fabric and flattering fashionable clothing. Being a modern day Goddess can be fun if you want it to be! And every woman alive has this within, the practice of yoga and meditation that I teach, helps us to remember our divinity and embody the sensuous side of life that allows for all pleasures (within reason;).


bella petite Recently I began writing a weekly article for a wonderful new magazine called Bella Petite. I'm excited about their mission to raise awareness about height discrimination. It's interesting because I have always felt that this was a very strange aspect to society, where based upon a person's height, it would be determined if they could be considered a 'model' in fashion and other artistic endeavors.

If you don't know me that well, I will share with you a key element to my personality is the total commitment to freedom, creativity and the expansion of ones limitless potential. That being said, when I was an aspiring model years ago, I was very deflated to find out there were height requirements, just like 50 years ago there were gender and color requirements for certain jobs. At the time, I was not discouraged and just found other avenues for my creative expression and discovered ways around the old system and height prejudices. I still feel this is an important topic, however, as a young woman with dreams and goals, it would be wonderful to see one less social barrier to entry, so to speak.

Surrendering to Divine Will for Your Life

What's Happening at Pranashama Yoga Institute?
Surrendering to Divine Will for Your Life
Are you still deciding whether to join us in Bali this summer? 
Well, consider this: in life, it is up to each of us to determine which direction we want our lives to go. We pave our way and in many ways create our future with the decisions we make today. 
So, ask yourself this question:
*What is most important to me right now? 
*What do I want my life to be like in 1 year, 5 years, 10 years, or when I'm 90?
*When I look back in 5 years, which decisions will have been most instrumental in shaping the life I am living right now? *Which events, teachers, experiences and opportunities did I allow to be a blessing unto my path? *Where did I resist the stream? *Where did I choose to swim up current instead of going with divine flow? 
In my own journey, it has always been when I had no money, and a ton on my plate that the most amazing opportunities presented themselves to me. 
It is in these moments we make the decisions that shape our life path. 
When I was deciding whether to study abroad in college, I didn't know how I was going to make it happen. All I knew is that I needed to do it - to NURTURE MY SOUL. To fuel my creativity and my longing to see the world in a new way. That trip, just like all of the others, helped shape me in ways I can only begin to understand. It opened my mind and heart. It pushed me past my comfort zone and out of fear. 
The fear of not having enough money is a very common one. This is instilled in us from a young age. At birth our parents start planting these seeds of fear into our unborn unconscious minds. And we are born into this world, pre-wired with the fear of not having enough. 
I can remember almost every trip I have been on around the world, always coming back with nothing in the bank. Broke and happy I like to call it. Yes, it motivated me to work hard when I got back to restock my bank with some funds, but the experience was always so beyond PRICELESS that when the chance would present itself again, repeatedly I said YES. 
I said yes to 6 weeks in India and Israel, even when I had no money and didn't know how I could afford my rent and the plane ticket. Somehow it all worked out. 
When you commit to something in your mind and heart, the universe co-conspires to attract the support you need every time. 
Maybe you can remember times in your life when this has happened for you? 
I know I can. 
Here's a powerful prayer/mantra to help release fears and open to faith and trust: 
I allow my father, the supreme source, to support me abundantly and know I will always be provided for. I always have everything I need and I trust that when I am in alignment with my highest self, all good things flow to me with effortless ease. I am on a divine path guided by love and in pursuit of self actualization. Nothing can stop me but me. I surrender to the will of the universe and let go of all fears that would hold me back from life enhancing and enriching experiences. Amen. 

As we progress along with preparations, I will continue to post blogs and send out emails with reminders and things for you to do, to get ready.

"Since love grows within you, so beauty grows.
For love is the beauty of the soul."
-- Saint Augustine


Stress is always on the top of the list for every major and minor illness and disease, this is preventative holistic medicine at its finest!

Aloha My Love!
Maybe you are wondering: What is Thai Yoga Therapy? 
This ancient 'folk art' was originally developed thousands of years ago for the royal families during the time of the Buddha. Sometimes called "Lazy Man's Yoga" it offers the best of what yoga has to offer without requiring any effort on the part of the receiver. Combining the most powerful stress relief and healing techniques from Yoga, Accupressure massage, meridian therapy and meditation, both the giver and receiver experience incredible and profoundly therapeutic benefits that can last for days after.
My Thai Yoga Story: 
For me, Thai Yoga was one of the most profoundly healing and heart opening experiences I have ever had. It was through giving and receiving this loving exchange that I learned to forgive myself, over come deep anger I had been harboring in my heart and to awaken to my true divine nature which is infinite love and unbounded potentiality. So you can see why I am so passionate about this Retreat!
Meet my friend and co-teacher Michael Buck "Mukti"

We are VERY HONORED to have Michael Buck, celebrity yogi and founder of Vedic Conservatory, joining us from across the country for this very special event. "Mukti" has personally administered over 40,000 thai yoga sessions and certified thousands of thai yoga massage practitioners from around the world. His events always sell out and have a waiting list and I am excited to introduce his exquisite gifts to you and the entire community. You can learn more about him on his website here.
**If you can only make it to 1 or 2 events this year, this should be one of them, without question.
Here are a few testimonials from previous clients of mine:

Thai Yoga massage with you is a deeply satisfying, physically and spiritually, it beats any regular massage I have ever experienced. The effects of Thai Yoga Massage lasts for days." ~Nelson Corbrera, Boca Raton


Dashama is a beautiful young woman who appears delicate but beyond the surface beauty she has a deceptively strong body and mind. She used Thai Yoga to manipulate my 40 year old frame into positions I've not dreamed of since my late 20's. Coupled with her informed instruction and directed meditation this strong physical manipulation leads to a long lasting feeling of health and well being."

~Lowell Jones, CEO, Ft. Lauderdale, FL
