I hope that you find these resources helpful in supporting your personal sadhana, home practice, of yoga, breath and mediation.  This page will be updated regularly and is intended to provide recommended books, apps, outside training and links to class handouts.  

Please see weekly blog posts (Off Your Mat & Off Your Child's Mat)  in the upper left corner for weekly reflections from class!   I welcome feedback and questions!  This type of open sharing is how we all grow deeper!  ~ Namaste!

Elements Meditation Journeys  

Elements offers corporate groups and private students stress reduction techniques and mindfulness practices that can be customized to the individual or corporate needs of the clients.  
Below is a sample of some goals and intentions that students may expect from developing a meditation and mindfulness practice: 

  • Learn the benefits of meditation. 
  • Identify a personal ‘bridge’ to meditation. 
  • Identify common obstacles & find out how to lean into these obstacles and manage any barriers that arise! 
  • Learn methods for how to sit comfortably. 
  • Be exposed to various types of meditations as a means to exploring which method(s) are a best “fit” to the individual’s personality and needs. 
  • Be assisted in setting up a personal place to meditate and developing a daily practice. 
  • Have the opportunity to join the circle in a weekly guided meditation. 
  • Receive daily support and Inspiration (for at least the first 40 days) via insight timer & a Facebook group pag "

parents or Educators of children's yoga students:

I am passionate about supporting families and educators on their journeys to more healthy, focused and peaceful children!  With education and experience in both Early Childhood Education and Yoga, I bring both knowledge and experience to every children's yoga class!  Parents and Educators are always encouraged to participate in any class and gain inspiration for extending the lessons into their homes and classrooms.  After most classes I will post a re-cap in a blog format for you to access and possibly repeat the story or practices at leisure.   Here is a Link to some of my past class posts:  Off Your Child's Mat  Please contact me to schedule events at my studio or your location for Scouts, Birthday Parties, Classrooms, or a Family Fun Night!

Breathing In,
I calm my body.
Breathing Out,
I smile.

Dwelling in the Present Moment,
I know this is a
wonderful moment.
