Share with us what you love about what you do:
I love the connections that Sacred Space Astoria, the yoga studio and healing space I own, provides for both the community and myself. Being in a safe space where we can show up authentically as ourselves and feeling held is so crucial for growth and healing. The feeling I get from meaningful connections and conversations while I’m fully in my body and open-hearted after a yoga practice, reiki session or providing death support is unparalleled!
Share with us what you have learned about LOVE:
When we can show up fully as who we are without risk of judgment, magic can unfold. In my end-of-life work, it quickly became clear that my only job was to show up and unconditionally love the person who was dying; seeing, hearing and supporting their process was all that was needed. Simply put, my presence is enough; I am enough. That understanding facilitated more healing than I can put to words.
What inspired you to support Yoga Love Magazine?
I love to read, and I love the practice of yoga! I’m also a big proponent of supporting small businesses/operations, especially when they are female-run. I think it’s important to be active in AND support our community, so becoming a sponsor of the magazine was an easy choice!
