Yoga means to unite or join body and mind.

Joining body and mind through soul and spirit, yoga unites opposites of inner and outer orientations, individual and group consciousness, and masculine and feminine capacities. It is a path to wholeness or healing.

Its beautiful the language that you use. . . I really feel that you have made such a huge contribution to our souls, to our artistic creative selves. . . You have come in and created a furthering of neuropathways and pathways for us to look at the artist, the archetypal artist, and give us a place where we can have soul.

Following those who have gone before

While Heather has researched the soul's creativity to walk and lead others on this path, your soul is your real guide. Combining cutting-edge science and ancient wisdom, this path's deep magic is the soul. It is the soul you follow and only you can connect to your soul (You).

Only in our creative acts do we step forth into the light and see ourselves as whole and complete. C G Jung

Frequently asked questions

FAQ 1 Is this physically hard or painful?

No!! This class is about exploring, connecting, and integrating mind and body through ancient practices. What matters is getting in touch with yourself not your toes. Breathe deep, relax, and rest into the exercises. 

FAQ 2 Do I need to know anything?

You don't need to know Sanskrit or how to pronounce it (or how many pedals a center has)?  Knowing how to imagine into, understand, and apply the center does. This is not about the letter but the spirit of the law.

FAQ 3 Are yoga and chakras religious?

Nope. Yoga and chakras are both ancient practices from Hindu philosophy. Their concepts, exercises, and traditions are popular because they improve health and wellbeing and are time-tested and evidence-based.

FAQ 4 Does the art have rules?

Predictably, no. The art is about energy, and the form that embodies it is a container best held as beautiful, powerful, and meaningful. Enjoy the process. Don't let the tradition intimidate you. Art is freedom not rules.

Yoga is a mind & body union.

The soul unites opposites and we live in a world of polarity in which opposites are seen in opposition to each other. In yoga we take a complimentary view in which opposites are 2 halves creating a whole. 
"As above, so below, as within, so without, as the universe, so the soul." Hermes Trismegistus

Yoga connection purpose & power.

You walk on stepping stones that introduce fundamental yoga concepts, quotes, and practices. These steps are patterned to help you follow your soul. Each week you will get a new video to watch, along with creative prompts, tutorials, and a written material. You journey held within a circle of support and aided by an alchemical partner, interacting in live zoom sessions and a private social media platform. The learning structure includes many unique features that help support you. Activities are woven throughout the coursework to help you bring your embodied imagination to life in YOUR LIFE--in your nature and nature.

A structure to CONTAIN the process

This process is contained by your soul but also by 3 circles of support that expand with you as you create your opus. Each is designed to offer a different level of containment as you individuate into yourself and group.

Alone

You travel alone.

like Jung
To really experience the darkness of the dark night of the soul, you need to be alone with your soul. So, you walk alone.

Partner

A partner helps to mirror you.

like Jung's patients with him
Jung viewed his patients art and worked with them one on one. So you work with a power partner to help contain you.

Group

A circle to discuss and reflect.

Like Jung's inner circle together
Jung led his inner circle on this path, creating a container for group growth. So, we meet in monthly zoom circles

A 10 week journey

While you do not have to follow a timeline or finish each week, the content drops weekly to help pace you as you travel. The kits are designed to provide a minimum of support and let you navigate on your own. They offer a chance to learn on your own while providing structure.

Go into nature to remember how to be natural (healthy).

Yoga connects your nature to nature, so it will lead you deeper into the natural world. Breathe deep of the breath of trees. Practice tree breathing and chakra meditations under the inspiration of the trees in the forest. Find yourself as you travel on paths of ferns past mushrooms and snails. Look, listen, and know in a way that is second nature yet had to remember. 

Bring your love into the world

This is a service path that leads to greater consciousness and caring in the world. Whether foster children or climate change, whatever your unique  call is help lend your voice, power, and position to the vulnerable of the world.
While yoga is a work-in as much as a workout, we need to bring its power out into the world. Ultimately, as the Bhagavad Gita says: "Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, t o the self." It is a journey that goes on and on.
