My Perspective

Yogidevi

I created this site as a tool to assist you, the yogi or individual, on your journey to awakening. It's my belief that lasting happiness can only be achieved through the practice of yoga, meditation, or some form of inner exploration. Our daily lives are extremely stressful. The frequency or vibration of our planet is increasing and moving us forward, and in all of this transition it is becoming much more challenging for us to quiet the mind and calm the spirit. Our world is overrun by technology and is so frantic that most people have forgotten how to extend a caring attitude to everyone they meet, whether they are a family member or a total stranger. I feel that the time I give with care and attention enhances connection and slows down the frantic distracted interaction between people that is so common in our busy world. People have forgotten how to truly connect with each other.

Addiction to haste is the norm now. Our culture has turned haste and hurry into status symbols. We spend so much time on our technological devices, all the while yearning for a deeper connection with ourselves and others.

Most of the technological devices we are so attached to were created from the noisy mind, and in using these devices we tend to enter into that very same state of awareness. This leads to an even greater feeling of being scattered and having a less spacious mind.

Happiness or peace of mind is possible with a clear, spacious mind, combined with a simple moment-to-moment settling into what is right here and right now.

Awareness is crucial to noticing when we're not present, and we've become caught up in the repetitive mental dialogue.

I offer a free 15 minute consultation for new clients, to determine which one of the tools or services will best serve you. We can work by phone, in person or on Skype. You can call and simply talk or ask questions. I have a one on one approach with my clients and students that focuses on quality of attention and care.
