Sacred Yoga Online Winter Session


Sacred Yoga is a time to create space within one’s day to pause, breathe, pray, meditate, and move into the daily rhythms of life with grace, strength and hope. Jesus says, “Do not worry about your life, can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?” (Matthew 6:25-27) But we worry, we do. Creating a sacred space will give us a chance to cast our worries and reset our heart and soul and strengthen our mind and body for the days to come.

Winter Session will be on Thursdays, starting on January 10th and ending on March 21st. Online classes will be held at 7:00am (PST) 8:00am (MST) 10:00am (EST) 11:00am (CST). The classes will be recorded and a downloadable link will be sent via email if you miss a live class. (Note: the downloadable link will be removed after two weeks of the live recording date).

Suggested donation of Sacred Yoga Online Winter Session is $100. Please email me if finances get in the way of your participation, I trust that God will provide for my time and yours!

Payment info is in the google form.

To enhance your experience, create a sacred space next to an open wall, lay out your mat and have a block and blanket nearby. Maybe light a candle or incense and have a journal next to you to jot down any inspirations or messages you may receive during class. This is your time.

Look forward to sharing sacred space with you!

Schedule for June

School is out, but yoga is still in! (For the month of June at least).

Meditative Flow blends vinyasa (linking breath with movement) yin (longer holds to get into the connective tissue) hatha (traditional postures and breath work) and Bhakti (prayerful devotion) yoga all into one class.

Faith-Based Yoga Fusion is an interval workout that will nurture your mind and body as well as your spirit. The class will fuse together yoga postures with weights, bursts of cardio movements, breath work, deep stretching and prayerful meditation.

All faiths welcome!

P.S.–Yes, you are seeing correctly, the “June Schedule” header is crooked. It’s imperfect, even though I spent way too long trying to fix it, decided to be perfectly imperfect and let it go. Didn’t have the patience to do it over. Everyone has their strengths! LOL

A Time to Teach and A Time to Rest

Thank you for popping by, I am taking a sabbatical from teaching until my kiddos go back to school. Until then, I hope you browse around and explore some articles and inspirations. I would love to hear from you and connect, you can reach me at

Conscious MOMents

So you’re in the checkout line and your toddler grabs a candy bar. You say, “no!” and turn to reach for your receipt… and then… you turn back to see the tiny crumpled face… it’s all scrunched and you hear the long intake of air. You know what is about to happen. You can hear the scream before it’s audible to everyone else nearby.

Don’t you just want to do that sometimes? Crumple and cry like a three year old. It looks so freeing. (Be honest, no shame here.)

We’ve been there. Life doesn’t stop for you to catch your breath and respond in the perfect way. Life is full and fast and can be unrelenting. In the heat of the moment you snap. You feel everything at once… how tired you are, how loud they are, how embarrassing this is… and then it’s all over, you’re yelling, your day is ruined… and then you feel bad and they feel bad…

*record scratch

Pssst! There is another way!

Rachel and Jessica here!

We’ve been there. We’ve had the checkout line moment… several, in fact. And not only have we lived to tell about it, we’ve learned to experience it in new ways. And we have some insights to share about compassionate parenting.

Sometimes you just need to take a MOMent.

We’ve created a workshop to take you through a new experience, to empower you to do things… differently. When those moments happen (*cough, daily*) you will have the tools you need to change your habitual responses and to begin to show up in a new way. You know, like those moms in the commercials.

The Conscious MOMents workshop is a “how to” course that focuses on the ways we can get ourselves calm before we engage with our children.

We will share…

  • practical tools that work
  • experiential role playing
  • powerful guided writing exercises
  • in-depth group discussions


We are mothers and yoga teachers who have journeyed together through years of tears and laughter involving the most terrific and utterly terrifying MOMents of our lives raising our children. We are blessed and grateful to share some of our bloopers and victories and how we continue to learn and grow through them with more and more grace while creating more and more space for pure connection.

Not only for moms, but also for anyone who works with children and desires to learn ways to engage consciously and compassionately.

Compassionate Parenting Workshop



Do you ever find yourself wishing you could show up differently for your child(ren)? Do you long for your interactions to be more heartfelt, more meaningful and more intentional? As parents, we understand how easy it becomes run on autopilot due to our own conditioning. Our modern lives keep us so busy rushing from one activity to the next and as a result we tend to lack compassion with ourselves and our children.

This workshop is a “mini-boot camp class” designed to help you learn how you can interrupt your conditioned responses and choose how to engage with your child(ren) with compassion. We will guide you through meditation, life-changing writing exercises, role playing, personal reflection and in-depth group discussion. We will also share our findings from the latest research showing how compassion strengthens the brain and improves the quality of our relationships.

We are mothers and yoga teachers who have journeyed together through tears and laughter on the most insanely terrific and utterly terrifying ride of our lives; raising our children! From nursing throughout the nights to hair raising tantrums, to the first visit home from college, to sending them on a study abroad, we will share stories, tips and techniques that are sure to enhance your relationship with yourself and with every member of your family.

Valentine’s Day Month Special rate: $65.00 throughout the entire month of February.

Beginning March 1st the workshop rate will be based on a sliding scale of $80-100.

Back to School Jitters?

backtoschooljittersimageOriginally published on

It’s still hot and sunny, but school is around the corner and your child or maybe YOU have back to school jitters. The first step is to recognize that school jitters are normal and a natural bodily response to change. There is a mixture of feelings going on for all of us; we are sad the summer is coming to an end because we had more flexibility in our schedules, we are excited to reunite with friends and regain structure again, we are nervous if we don’t like our teachers, so the combination of excitement and anxiety makes our tummy and heart feel all jittery. After we acknowledge and communicate to ourselves and children that this is “NORMAL,” we are able shift and create peace in our mind and body. It’s a great way to bond with your child and share that in life we are going to feel nervous, worried and excited and we have the power to take over our jitters with our thoughts and breath!

Here are two simple activities that can help you and your children move past the jitters into a calmer state of mind.

Calming Jar Activity–This simple exercise works wonders! All you need is a mason jar with a lid, water and glitter. Fill the jar to the top and add glitter. Shake the jar and watch the glitter float and spin around. This is an illustration of how our worries and fears swirl around in our minds. When we pause, take a breath and watch the glitter settle to the bottom, it remind us  when we are still, our thoughts will settle like the glitter and we will see clearly and feel calm again. Breathe in and Breathe out: I am calm.

Squeeze and Breathe–Is a breath technique that helps with frustration, anxiety and anger. Interlace your hands and place your hands on your belly. Release your head and gaze at your belly as you squeeze your hands together and breathe in and breathe out 5x. Feel yourself gain control over your fluttering emotions as you squeeze and breathe and melt your nervous system back into homeostasis.  Breathe in and Breathe out: I am peace.

Turn the corners of your mouth upright and watch your children move past back to school jitters into back to school peace.
