Spinal Embryology Meditation AUDIO  Spinal Embryology Meditation (MP3) and Booklet.

'Stand up straight' she tells me for the umpteenth time, pins hanging out of her mouth. I look in the mirror in front of me, the fabric of my dance costume draped over my body, all a-swirl.
I look straight to me....or do I?
'I am, Mum'....
I am 13 years old.

I invite you to experience your heart-achingly beautiful body. And in particular, your back.
Through yoga, through your story, through your breath. Through your luscious embodied architecture. And together, we create real and potent change in your strong, fluid spine!

Yoga with Scoliosis Intensives

A FREE Podcast for you!
Hear a little about my journey in yoga and scoliosis-backcare !

FREE INTERVIEW  for you, fresh from the recording studio JUNE, 2013 from YogaUOnline

The full webinar  link for you, to my YogaUOnline 2.5 hour E-Course Songs of the Spine. Yoga, Science, Scoliosis. SERIOUSLY JAM PACKED!!

What's my Practice ?
- Yoga
within the landscape of my scoliosis.
AND, Photography and Image / word. My deep embodiment in the Body-Landscape.

Whom do I serve in yoga ? Women who want to practice yoga
within the terrain of an asymmetric spine, AND
women who simply want to deepen their experience of the ecology of their body; in movement, in yoga, in awareness and breath.

Yoga Teachers, Somatic Practitioners, Movers!

AND, Whom do I serve? People aching for communion of the Body-Land. People yearning to re-find that sacred Knowing of Wholeness within their embodiment of their terrain; the visceral knowledge that we are a breathing living interaction with the land and other beings.

Your spine is a curving graceful arc of river... Sometimes this changes...
pine fossilises, movement fluency
sediments, scoliosis downward spirals;
Happily there is another way to be in your body - of course!!

I invite you to the only service of its kind within Australia, specialising in yoga with scoliosis;
My service to you is anchored in my deep and reverent curiosity and study of embodiment, held in love and compassion.
The ground of my offering in yoga is my Iyengar Training and practice, informed by the juiciness of experiential spinal anatomy, embryology, and developmental movement patterns.
AND, the embodiment of the body as landscape.
