This class is for anyone who has experienced trauma. We will use a mind-body approach that draws on imagery, guided meditation, movement and positive cognitive psychology to help people experiencing trauma to take the necessary steps to safely reach a state of relaxed, focused awareness so that the body's nervous system is more receptive to change and so that old wounds (physical and emotional) can heal more readily.

I am really into breath. I am really into intention. I intend to lead a slow and focused hatha yoga class with a consistent, maybe insistent attention to breath. This class will be all-levels appropriate though I like to hold and explore poses and my patience will likely work you. Come ready for a lighthearted, explorative experience.

Since 2002, the IMPACT Speaker Series has brought highly successful business leaders from a variety of industries to campus to share their experiences and give advice to students and other entrepreneurs on topics ranging from "building a venture around intellectual capital" to "successful entrepreneurship in large organizations" and "socially responsible leadership".
I am really into breath. I am really into intention. Harnessing the power of the human mind through breath is the ultimate tool for health, healing, and happiness. I lead volunteer yoga classes outdoors in San Francisco, CA at Hayes Valley Farm. I have been doing so for the past year. I also throw conscious (alcohol free) yoga and blindfolded dance parties in SF. As an eLearning entrepreneur and enthusiast, I believe eLearning to be a fantastic tool for personal sustainability. eLearning reduces the carbon footprint of travel, increasing potential for physical activity in our busy lives, and opens up opportunities to learn from instructors and concepts all over the world. Join me as we move into the next learning paradigm and connect the world with knowledge and health.
I am a former anthropologist turned MD--now using integrative medicine focused on Mind-Body approaches. I work with people not only to understand and improve their physical health and state-of-mind, but perhaps even more importantly, this work helps people to find or refine their bigger story: What really matters to them? What do they want to do with their time and energy? There is always some level of healing to come from this work, no matter how serious the illness or how bad the burn out. Where a person is open to learning, he or she will grow--often in unexpected ways.
