"Health is a state of complete harmony of the body, mind and spirit."

"You can't diligently practice yoga, honing the clarity of your mind, and fail to be struck by the very humorous-albeit pathetic predicament we're all in. We find ourselves chained to the wheel of Karma, going round and round in our own private illusory worlds, struggling to glimpse reality and attain eternal peace.  It's funny and maddeningly difficult, and sad, too, sometimes.  It's also the only game in in town and nobody gets out alive."

​Welcome to Spirit of the North

My mission is to know that I have touched and inspired lives no matter where I am at - the grocery store, the beach at home with family, in a country where I know no-one.  The the love in my heart and the twinkle in my eye will inspire people to live their life to the fullest - in truth, love, integrity, authenticity creating so much beautiful energy that the movement just keeps going from heart to heart to heart.

Getting It Together
Separateness causes suffering and union creates freedom.  Yoga is Union

​It is the separation from our Self, each other, nature, and from something greater or higher (be it God, universal, consciousness, or whatever term you want to use) that causes the anxiety and chaos symptomatic of our times.  It is difficult for us to experience our natural connection with each other when we don't have that connection with our own Self.  Yoga connects us with an inner wisdom, in which there is no doubt as to the connection of all things.  

Now is the time for Yoga.

Yoga is a practical method of bringing peace and connectedness back into our lives.  Because we are a reflection of our nervous system, the state of our nervous system dictates how we experience the world.  If the nervous system is fresh and rested, the body will be healthy and the mind alert and comprehensive.  As a result, our thought will be powerful and clear and our actions, which are manifested thought, will be successful and rewarding.

Yoga strengthens and purifies the nervous system so it can reflect a greater degree of consciousness and our lives can become an increasingly positive force in the world.  If methods of yoga are practiced correctly the whole nervous system is revitalized, the body enjoys better health and more energy, the mind is rested and freed from the endless burdensome thought of future and past, and perceptions is restored to its primal freshness.  We can actually gain back the connection to the Self and others as we are released from the restricted thinking, dull mind, and negativity resulting from a strained, tired nervous system.  The healthier our nervous system, the healthier our body, mind thoughts and actions.

Yoga helps your rise to the challenge of living.
