About Our Practice
Before we flower, before we fruit in any sustained way, we must have well-prepared ground to rise from.
Leaf to Root Yoga
About the Company
In gardening, there is an adage – Leaf to Root, Flower to Fruit. It has to do with how we tend our soil, a gardener’s most valuable commodity.
Leaf to Root Yoga is built on recognition that before we flower, before we fruit in any sustained way, we must have well-prepared ground to rise from. Your soil is your body: your blood and bones, your heart and mind. What grows inside – and out – begins with the quality of attention that we give ourselves here. For this journey, yoga is a beautiful vehicle – a set of tools and insights – but not the answers themselves. Those are for you to seek and experience. Your practice will become a collection of insights and tools transcending tradition and time.
Welcome to the garden. Join me for a first time session, or at one of my weekly classes in Seattle. You can also follow my blog or join my newsletter, near or far. Looking forward to seeing you on the path.

Love the earth and sun and the animals, have patience and indulgence toward the people, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body.
