Yogis tend to be all about purification. Yes we like to cleanse on all levels, including: External, Internal, and Energetic. To do this we use Yoga Asanas (yoga postures), Breathing Techniques (Pranayama), Meditation (Dhyana) and Purification Actions called Kriyas. There are many different Kriya, Cleansing/Purification Techniques, and they are categorized in 6 groups called Sat-Karma-Kriya […]
Overeating? Can’t sleep? How’s your sex life? Do you know what to do about this stuff? Certain things bother many people, and so they are accepted as a normal until they lethargically pass. Thus, most have not noticed that food, sex and sleep is one system…your 2nd Chakra energy system. When one of these aspects […]

Last night I woke up from a deep sleep feeling like heaven just touched me.
While dreaming I caught some of my closest friends in their moments of solitude. I watched one of them reflect on a full life cycle as she decided to get married. Another feeling so grateful for the important work she had accomplished and realized it was time to take a break.
Many such moments were observed, and it was beautiful to see each friend reflect and unravel truth, whether it was due to joy or struggle, with a new sense of acceptance and wonder – a lightness.
One friend in particular, who we’ll refer to as “Beck,” sensed my presence, and drew me close to explain how he has lost that “fire” inside, and the willpower that he recognized as fuel all his life to draw and function from had disappeared.
“I was not sure if he was talking to me on the phone or mentally, but the response from me, was also to me.” Immediately I noticed that his “fire” was not gone, it just seemed that way to him, when in fact it was shifting and flipping on itself into a new dimension he had not yet tasted, thus seemingly disappearing. To me, this was obvious exciting news. Still I had nothing to say until I opened my mouth and surprised myself with words.
Beck is one of the most impressive men I’ve ever met – all struggle is minute to him, and he has found many ways to always feel healthy and happy always. Nothing bothers this guy, and he’s one of the few people I feel will never need my help or guidance as he’s got it all figured out beautifully for himself.
I woke up from the dream still feeling fully in conversation with him. I didn’t understand the thoughts I was trying to complete and share with Beck in the dream, and they were still running through my head so I grabbed a pen, rolled onto my side and started writing.
The below is what I shared with Beck.
And so, the 3 of us stand in the middle of my studio, surrounded by the effects of change. The packing boxes and scattered items seem not to phase us, as we gravitate in a perfect triangle to share the most heartbreaking events that led to the most exciting personal revelations.
I looked deeply at the other women recognizing that once we walk away from this triangle, nothing in our lives would ever be the same.
Each of us was standing at the cliff of change. Not a small or big scary change that shifts only one aspect of life, but the type of change begging for a quantum leap – the type that feels natural and enlivening…like pulsating power.
We had an amazing discussion this week during my Online Woman’s Tantra Yoga class as we went over what Sexual Energy is, and the 6 Rat Holes that eat Your Sexual/Spiritual/Creative/Vital Energy leaving you confused, scared, tiered and idle.
Sexual energy is vital energy, or divine energy, that creates. The same energy that makes you want to have sex, is the same energy that makes you want to raise children, write a book, move your body, cook, love, create, express. It’s the energy of pure activity.
If you want to change your job, enhance your relationships, stop a habit, change anything in your life, then you must work with energy that transforms = creative, sexual, vital, alive, electric energy.
I asked the ladies in my Feminine Power Chakra Flow class what they felt wasted their Sexual/Spiritual/Creative/Vital Energy, and they were right on the money! Answers included: fear, worry and stress.
So what would a Yogi say?!?!
There are 6 rat holes in all men and women where energy escapes according to Swami Shivananda:
1. Reproductive Organs
(partaking in sexual activity without refueling the body- more on this in future workshops)

Since I am one of the very few teachers that teach the Moon Salutation, allow me to share with you exactly why it is what you need today, and what the world needs you to do today.
For those of you that are unfamiliar with the subject…
Really…I’m flattered and inspired by you! The most fascinating, beautiful, highly intelligent people of all ages and experience levels are coming to Hip Hop Tantra Yoga™ regularly, and are loving it.
It has been one month since the first Hip Hop Tantra Yoga™ class and the response and feedback has been very positive, energizing and forward-thinking.
“This is what I go to other yoga classes to get and never get.” – a Dancer
“My best and most productive days are Saturdays, the day after class.” – a Musician
“Thanks to this class I have the courage to get rid of what I don’t need in my life.” – a Mom
What you don’t know is that this class combines Yoga Practice and Yoga Theory. All in the span of 1.5 hours the students enjoy Dancing, Power Yoga, Tantra Yoga and a Tantra Yoga Philosophy Lecture where I provide the students with a handout to take home that translates this ancient sacred wisdom into everyday life.
Hip Hop Tantra Yoga™ is the integration and expression of all my love, so the fact that the room is packed every Friday night makes me feel like I can give more. So I did!
