Who Am I?

An important question that leads one to inquiry about the nature of Self. Who am I? I am not this physical body, the senses that perceive the external world, the waves of emotions that flow through me, nor am I the thoughts that come and go like the hummingbird that stops for a drink at the columbine, and then buzzes off for another feeding. So, what remains? An awareness; sat-chit-ananda. Truth-Consciousness-Bliss.

I aim to dedicate my life towards awakening consciousness and serving humanity. My route to the fulfillment of this aim is through somatic healing and bodywork. I am grateful to have spent several years living in an intentional community focusing on Classical Ashtanga Yoga & Ayurveda and studying alongside authentic, heart-centered teachers. My background includes education in Western Psychology, Eastern Mysticism, Classical Ashtanga & Hatha Yoga, Ayurveda, Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Release, Polarity, Astrology and Herbalism. 

I believe in the intuitive wisdom of the body and I find bodywork to be a profound way to synchronize body, mind and spirit. It is my intention to be a guide and offer tools to awaken the innate healing capacity that resides within you.

In love,

Durga
