Someone who walks through life in a mindful, unhurried way.

Yoga  With A French Twist:

A journey through the Chakras

I have written all my life but this is my first published book.
Yoga with a French Twist offers a powerfully authentic account of how the chakras are woven into the stories of your life, and how this awareness can help you make peace with your past, deal with challenges and realign yourself with your life's purpose.

I am a Yin traveler, in the world and on my yoga mat,
Savoring each step, each pose and each breath,
Gathering experiences,

Listening,
Seeing each tree, each blade of grass,
The smiling face in the midst of the crowd
And the gift of each present moment.
As the wise woman said, its about the journey, not the destination.
I invite you to join me on my Yin travels,
See the details,
Hear the single note that transforms music into a symphony,
Go on unbelievable journeys that will transform your life.
In this world of doing, you will learn to just
be
A Yin traveler.
