READY FOR YOUR DREAM LIFE? Want World Travel? For most people that seems like like a galaxy away. That galaxy, is where I live. 8 years ago, before it became trendy, I quit my lucrative and stable corporate career, for many reasons, but mostly because of the undying inner urge to teach yoga full-time. It was not […]
My excitement abounds!
Not only am I in Thailand continuing my Tantra Yoga studies, but I also ran into Savita!!! She’s the Shawoman I wrote about in my last Blog entry before I went on the plane. I’ve been praying to see her again. Talk about synchronicity!
If you haven’t read that Blog post yet, click to catch up with us, “Thailand! Taking You With Me!”
At this point my thrill in teaching Tantra Yoga has expanded to a whole new level. After teaching yoga for over 6 years, it’s a dream come true to travel, study with Masters, and teach yoga online to private clients and to the most inspiring group of women I like to refer to as my “Createreses.”
I am not sure how this journey will unravel, but I hope that one day a Master will get curious about what I do and want to talk to the women in my online class. That will be a charmed day!!!
Today however, I write to share the joy and the huge breakthrough my Private Online Tantra Yoga Student from Finland experienced. So proud of him!
He was so awesome to work with! He was assigned the longest customized daily Tantra Yoga Home Practice and he did it everyday. He asked the best questions, and was fully engaged as he fell in love with Tantra Yoga and saw the results enhance every part of his life, professional and personal.
In other words, his career was put on the fast track, and simultaneously, he was attracting more women (the kind he would love to attract) and experiencing deeper intimacy and reaching transcendental states during lovemaking…in only 3 sessions!
But there is more to this story…he challenged me big time!
We had never met before, and Tantra Yoga was a far away stranger to him. Still he wanted to working with me privately to specifically target social anxiety and nervousness, and remove the tightening feeling in his throat that would occur when making calls to book music venues, effecting not only his confidence, but his singing voice.
He identified this as stuck energy in his Throat Chakra and simply asked, “Can you help me?”
Warm clear blue water, tropical plants, crispy clean air, endless yoga, delicious food, a beautiful community, and…The Kings of Leon?!?!
Yes, one of my favorite bands, discovered while studying Tantra Yoga in Thailand with Swami Vivekananda in 2008.
A few weeks ago I found my Kings of Leon CD and once again put it on instant replay. It didn’t take long for me to feel instantly transported to my beachfront bungalow in Thailand.
Every morning for 3 months I could not wait to get out of bed. I would literally jump up and open the front door to stare at the nothingness of purity that I hoped one day could be me.
The front door of my beach bungalow would remain open as I would shower and have a full view of the ocean at dusk. Not one soul on the beach except the single-file line of birds that would run across the sand quickly eating all the bugs sweeping the sand clean.

The water was these 20 steps away from my bungalow as you see here.
Chances are, as you read this, you wish you were there. Let’s see how you feel after reading this.
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)
Three years ago today exactly, was the last day of my corporate career. Most called me courageous, other’s crazy, as I watched their brain slip into the gutter of fear and hopelessness trying to figure out the age old question, “What are you going to do about health insurance?” I knew they wouldn’t understand my answer, “Quit my job.”
Truth #1. Don’t Let Perceived Popular Notion Stop You
It saddened me to hear my coworkers, who were in their 60s or more, who were retired government employees and now worked as civil employees say, “If it wasn’t for the high cost of insurance, I wouldn’t be working right now.”
Months later I discover that for all 3 doctor appointments, at the same doctors, I ended up paying less without insurance. When I asked why, “Because the system jacks up the price when you have insurance.”
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!
Everyday when I meet someone and tell them that my expertise is in Tantra Yoga, the response is, “Is that like sex?” At that moment I feel empowered and disempowered all at the same time, “Where do I start?” I think to myself when the easy answer is just, “Yes.”
Instead of giving an easy answer, I now offer an intelligent question. Let’s try that scenario again. “Is that like sex?” My answer, “Maybe. It depends. What is sex to you?
So lets get outside mainstream perceptions of Tantra and see it from the enlarged perspective it demands and deserves. Why? Because I guarantee…
If I told you that 3 simple moves can help you get through the day and do everything your fullest potential, would you take 3 minutes to do them? What if these 3 simple moves were specifically engineered to give you instant workday vitality, and stabilize your mind so you can calm down and focus […]
