Blossoming Lotus Yoga began in 2013 after I received my 200hr yoga teacher training. I chose this name because it represented my love for teaching children, adults and seniors and how we are all on our own individual journey, blossoming into our truth of who we are and our purpose for this life we are living. Like Thich Nhat Hanh said, "No mud, no lotus". Meaning, the secret to happiness is to acknowledge and transform suffering, not to run away from it. My mission is to help spread Peace, Compassion and Love through the practice of yoga, fitness, reiki and sound vibration therapy.
Who am I?
I am someone who finds a deep connection with the natural world. I enjoy making people laugh and feel good, my 4th grade teacher told me I should become a comedian ha-ha, something I have never forgotten and take seriously.
I am a wife, a mother of 3 adults ( 2 girls and 1 boy) and a dog plus 2 cats. I Love to garden, read and hike! I was raised catholic, which gave me a great foundation for my evolving spirituality, but in my teen years moved away from dogma.
I began a deeper connection with GOD-DESS/SOURCE/DIVINE through the natural world, and coming to the realization that I/we are all reflections of that Divine spark and so carry the Divinity within each of us. It is my greatest desire to be a positive influence in my community and help individuals through yoga, reiki or sound vibration therapy so that they may re-member their true self.
What is happening in this country and throughout the world can be quite depressing and daunting to think how one individual can possibly make a difference. I believe that if each of us were to whole heartedly make a difference in their neighborhood/community by volunteering or working on their self evolution it would weave together a tapestry of peace/love/compassion, that will inevitably move us all into a society that sustains and helps raise the vibration of the collective.
