I cover Ayurveda lifestyle topics with fresh realism: Ayurbasics, Seasonal practices, food & digestion, natural beauty, and women's health. My work is all heavily steeped in emotional wellness practices, from manifestation, to moon rituals, to parenting.
This is a 4 session experience with education and ritual. Sessions (30 - 60 min each) are held online at 1p EST // 10a PST: Apr 27, 29 (new moon), May 4, and 13 (full moon).
Moon Phases & Women's Rituals
As we experience that phase of the moon, we'll tailor self care practices and personal ritual.
The emphasis is on attending to your emotional body, as it's affected by the moon phase. We'll also build awareness of our monthly physical patterns, and learn how to support them.
Healing the Mother Wound
There are aspects of our genetic makeup that come solely from maternal inheritance. As women, our wombs also reflect the energetics of ancestral patterns in our female lineage.
We’ll open the space for guided self exploration to identify your matriarchal wounds and healing opportunities, do a clearing exercise, and create a healing touchstone for your altar to symbolize the new awareness and intentions you come into in the workshop.
We want to take you from feeling triggered and resistant, to connected to the best of the experience, and supported in your healing. Specifically, around the wounds with your Mother, and matrilineage.
When you join Shakti School (starts mid Jan '22), you'll get these lectures in Year 1!

Ayurveda is a very sophisticated science when it comes to understanding digestion. Yet, even within Ayurveda, it’s so common to find these reductionist approaches to food, healing, and supporting digestion. I hope to keep alive the core holistic essence of Ayurveda, by including the emotional and psychospiritual layers in the digestive experience. We’ll review four major categories of digestive issues: constipation, diverticular diseases, ulcerative and inflammatory diseases, and cancerous and benign growths.
This topic is a needed adjunct to the physical focus of Ayurveda, and self care. We’ll cover my most pertinent insights and practices for psychospiritual wellness. Of course, we’ll do some live case study, and self reflective exercises so you can begin to apply.
With women taking on more, and the growing incidence of reproductive cancers, it’s an important time to strengthen our intuition, our ojas, and our ability to connect to nature’s rhythms. Mood sadhana is one of the most powerful ways to do so. Understanding the emotional functions of your monthly cycle is also helpful context to navigate your personal experience. We’ll also do some self assessment and reflection.
Here are my Level 2 classes for those enrolled in year 2 of Shakti School in 2021.
One in three women in the US will have cancer. One in five will die from it. These statistics are several years old, which means that incidence and mortality are likely higher than when we last did the analysis. Let’s talk about why cancer happens and why it’s so prevalent. Also, let’s look at psychospiritual factors and treatment integration.
The health of our heart and blood is so much deeper than our lab values and diet. I’ll present physical and emotional factors playing into happy circulation, and we’ll approach healing from the same holistic lens.
Our goal is to see the opportunity for integration of Ayurveda with Modern Medicine, and other modalities. A good portion of this class is dedicated to live case discussion, so come ready to ask about ailments you, clients, or loved ones are experiencing.
This is a mentorship for setting up your client practice in Ayurveda, Yoga Therapy, and/or Yoga.
We'll meet over 8 two hour sessions on Wed afternoons.
You'll create client offerings based on your individual patterns, gifts, and challenges. We'll build the awareness, clarity and confidence you need to set up shop in a way that feels good.
