  • Onward

    This practice was inspired by the grasshopper, a symbol of good luck and abundance. Grasshoppers are blessed, in my opinion, with the power to only move forward – they can’t go backwards or sideways. So they must always call on their courage to gather the resources of the present and charge onwar...

  • Steady & Strong

    Did you know bison walk INTO a storm, unlike other animals like cattle? They instinctively know the fastest way out of a storm is to go directly through it rather than to drift with the winds of the storm.

  • HIPnotic

    HIPnotic is one of my signature hip-centric practices and I absolutely LOVE teaching it.
