Day 2 at XYoga Festival in Dubai!

Day 2 at XYoga Festival in Dubai!

Incredible Shiva Meditation® class to finish day 2 here at the XYoga Dubai Festival. So grateful to be able to share this practice. 100+ yogis in attendance for a powerful and transformational experience. Thank you for coming, everyone! 

When the class finished all the students just sat there, in stillness, with big smiles on their faces. There was a peace and a calm that you could feel radiating from everyone in attendance. I told the students that this is what happens everywhere I teach this class. When the class is over — no one rushes out, there’s no where to go, nothing to do. It happens everywhere. The mind is quiet. Each students has a deeper experience of themselves. Maybe for the first time ever they feel a connection to something beyond the body, mind and thoughts. The mind has stopped saying, “What’s next? What’s next?”

I always feel so happy when I see the students sitting there peacefully after class. It reminds me of taking classes like this with my teacher, Dharma Mittra. We would all sit and Dharma would sometimes say, “Any questions?” There was almost always no questions. This was just like after my class today. I finally told the students what my teacher Dharma always says — “That’s it. It’s over. There’s nothing else.” Then he would laugh and we would all laugh, as we all did today after my class.

First Day at Xyoga Dubai Festival was amazing!

What an incredible first day here at the XYoga Dubai Festival! Grateful to be here. Presenting along with some wonderful teachers including, Janet Stone, Davidji and Laura Sykora. I am loving the energy and receptiveness of the students. I taught my first Shiva Power® class. We did some pretty deep hip opening and I threw in a lot of fun advanced variations and a little bit of partner work. Thank you to everyone who came to this class. Day 2 I’ll be leading another Shiva Power® class at 8am and a very special Shiva Meditation® at 3pm. Can’t wait! Thank you XYoga Dubai for producing such a special event!

Sharing my journey with Dubai Eye 103.8!

I had the opportunity to be on a popular radio show today on Dubai Eye 103.8 today and got to share about yoga and my journey! The hosts were really wonderful, funny, and asked great questions. It felt so good to be able to share a lot of knowledge about yoga, the benefits of the practice, and share my own story and yoga journey. Grateful for the experience! I hope the interview inspired a few people to get on their mat and try yoga. It’s definitely changed my life in a number of positive ways. 

Just Landed in Dubai!

Just Landed in Dubai!

After a quick stop in Los Angeles, I have arrived in Dubai for the XYoga Dubai Festival! It was a long flight but very smooth. I slept a lot. Lol. A day to rest and I’m excited to be presenting 2 Shiva Power classes and a Shiva Meditation class on Friday and Saturday at the festival. Looking forward to practicing with the students here. It doesn’t matter who you are, or where you are from — everyone can benefit from yoga. Quieting your mind and experiencing a deeper connection to your Self is Universal. Grateful to be here. It looks like a beautiful city. The people at the airport were so nice upon arrival.

Last Shiva Power Class with the Kula Yoga Community

Last Shiva Power Class with the Kula Yoga Community

My last Shiva Power class at Kula Yoga, in New Smyrna, was yesterday morning. It was a little bittersweet. We had so much fun practicing together all week. I will miss practicing with this Kula Yoga crew. I’m leaving for Orlando today, sad to go, but also feeling very inspired by the community here in Port Orange and New Smyrna. This community reflects so well on Jodie and Jackie Anderson.  You’ve created such a wonderful space here and attracted such a wonderful group of teachers and students. What a great group of yogis! I found everyone very open and receptive on this trip and it was so easy to teach your students all week. Thank you again for inviting me to come and share. Grateful for you both. Blessed that we have crossed paths and excited for the continued journey and future collaborations. Kula Yoga — I’ll see you in the fall. I’m back leading my 300hr Shiva Yoga Teacher Training which will be spread over September, October, and November. I look forward to seeing you then! I’m sure we will have some open classes and open up some of the workshops during the training too. It will be fun to practice with you all again.  Namaste.
