I am the current founder of the Yoga Liberation Front teacher training. In the past I co-owned and directed South Boston Yoga and began my research as a dancer, artist, and biologist. My studies brought fascinati...
   The Yoga Liberation Front Teacher Training is open to everyone, every body, every age, every religion, every belief, every orientation, every expression of what it means to be human. We are dedicated to clear, compassionate, thoughtful and intimate communication between all people. We are devoted to listening to the voices and stories of each individual and all of humanity. We are open to wonder about all others. Wonder how they came to be where they are. Wonder how it feels to be in their shoes. Wonder how we can take positive action together to make this world a better place.
   
    Our promise is to see everyone as family and friends whom we have not yet met and to treat them as someone we love. Our promise is to move through this life not in a reactive way but from a place of balance and steadiness. To walk quietly into this world and take actions to support change, progress and the evolution of human consciousness. To learn the skills to help stop the cycle of karma and suffering in ourselves through education and action. Then through this to be able to make the space for others to do the same.

   The origin of yoga lies not in the physical practice but in the total liberation of the human spirit, an embracing of all that is and a tremendous YES to life. In order to uncover this state of being, which is ever present and exists within us all, one must fearlessly and courageously face the conscious and unconscious past patterning and current thinking that holds you back.

 This is an adult course. There will be topics and conversations that are tough but important to hear. There will be discussions on racism, sex & sexuality, religion, addiction, depression, current and past societal struggles, cultural appropriation, ethical misconduct and so much more. You will hear swear words and prayer words and witness your story and the stories of others who have survived or may be currently living with addiction, abuse, surgeries, loss, sickness. You will hear the opinions of those who may have very different political, social or spiritual view points than yours. You will be challenged, intrigued, exhilarated and opened to all of humanity and what it means to be human. Are you ready?

   I have been teaching and practicing yoga for over 25 years, led over 60 teacher trainings all around the world and graduated hundreds of students starting their adventure practicing teaching yoga and sharing the joy and gift of being present with the world.

   This training is the start of something bigger, brighter and more fascinating than anything that has come before. I have invited friends, family, mischief makers, harmonizers, innovators, game changers and some of my deepest personal inspirations to add their knowledge and love to this teaching.

   This program is not interested in a limited amount of sharing. There will be a massive amount of absolutely incredible information that easily exceeds the hours of the course but is here for all of us to learn, share and evolve with.
