Free Intro to Energy Hygiene Course:


  1. 5:44 - “The gift of the teacher is planting the seeds.”
  2. 6:59 - “The subtle is always happening around us anyways, it’s just a different sort of paying attention for that to be felt.”
  3. 12:50 - “These classical poses, like triangle and side angle pose, those have a deep design to them, to open these channels, these meridian lines… are designed to release energy to free energy in the body”
  4. 15:35 - “There are times we are more physically feeling, and there are times we are more in that subtle realm of indescribableness, but it’s always a cycle.” 
  5. 17:15 - “Every single person has something to teach.”
  6. 18:15 - “ I think of teachers like a river or a stream. They’ll weave in and out with you. Sometimes they’ll make a comeback. Sometimes they’ll drop in real quick and that’s it.” 
  7. 20:20 - “Practice more. Spend more time, in practice. Whatever that is.”
  8. 21:05 - “To be clear, whatever you pay attention to, you are practicing… Be careful what you are paying attention to.”
  9. 23:57- “The physical act of making pottery on the wheel, centering, all of a sudden feeling connected to that divine inspiration, presence. You’re centering the clay- how beautiful is that vocabulary.”
  10. 24:18 - “ In Shibori with indigo dye you are folding, twisting, bending, wrapping. So even in the vocabulary itself there are a lot of similarities.” 
  11. 28:35 - “ So if I hear breathing can help boost my immune system, that’s exciting to me! Oh,and there’s a philosophy chapter in the yoga sutras about this particular breathing practice?! Yea, that’s important.”
  12. 34: “For me, one of my favorite parts is so I can be really really empathetic to all beginners. The beginner’s emotional states of not knowing how to do something. It informs me to be a better teacher.”
