Śrī Vidyā

As a certified yoga and meditation practitioner, I believe waking up to our wholeness is a human right, achievable with sincerity, commitment and practice. My postural yoga training includes basic and advanced certification in Kripalu yoga, flow yoga, restorative yoga, and Yoga4Cancer. I have also trained in yoga nidrā (or yogic sleep), a deeply restorative and rejuvenating practice.

I am an authorized guide of Śrī Vidyā under the guidance and tutelage of my main teacher Maa Uma-Parvathi Nath. Śrī Vidyā is an ancient and intricate form of traditional Shakta worship honoring the Divine Feminine. Meditation, mantra, and ritual are the practices of this path.


For decades I've trained in many different forms of meditation including Vipassana,  Loving Kindness (metta), and basic mindfulness. I also have roots in Vajrayana Buddhism and Tantra. This created the ground for me to embark on the journey of Śrī Vidyā.

It is with devotion and surrender that I offer Yoga, Tantra and Śrī Vidyā within their full and living contexts. The physical aspects of postural yoga serve deepening embodiment and preparation for meditation, mantra and ritual, all on the path of liberation ~ all to support an awakened life.

I offer:

  • Postural yoga instruction

  • Restorative yoga

  • Yoga Nidrā - deep, conscious rest

  • Meditation

  • Teachings in Tantra & Śrī Vidyā - individual, group, visiting instruction

Small Groups

I guide small groups of committed practitioners in traditional Śrī Vidyā teachings.  Participation in these groups require a commitment as we go deep and commit to ongoing sādhana (meditation and spiritual practice). If you are interested in learning more, contact me
