What is Posture Lab?
I created a posture laboratory to give more time and space to immerse yourself in the functional alignment. It’s a range of movement variations aimed at strengthening your Core & Soar training and guaranteed to take your weekly live training to the next level.
Each posture lab session will help you break through the mental and physical barriers that can come with faster transitions in a weekly exercise, and may even give you the fitness breakout you want – in less than 20 minutes! Each posture lab is fast enough to fit into the busiest schedule and can be easily combined with any practice in my library for warm-up or review.
You are a KYIS (Kripalu Yoga in Schools) registered Kripalu Yoga teacher for over 750 years who is aware of trauma, but so much more than that. Your teachings on Fernweh TV are based on mindful movement. What inspired you to create these signature sequences beyond Asana?
With so many ways to improve your physical wellbeing, knowing where to start can be overwhelming. People do not need to take a “go big or go home” approach to changes in physical wellbeing. I combine effective strategies with state-of-the-art thinking tools, exercise and breathing training for all those who are on the sacred path to improve their lives – mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. My sequences are based on the roots of humanity and are intended to support you in holistic and alternative living habits that honor the wisdom of the indigenous people and my teacher. Swami Kripalu.
My job in coaching is to show you that we share cross-structural resilience within communities. There are four archetypes that can be nurtured and strengthened in any body: the warrior, the healer, the visionary, the teacher. My sequences nurture my own connection as a survivor, a sense of resilience and hope found among the indigenous peoples, my indigenous bloodline. They support change, healing, transition and rites of passage. These are practices that we access within our own inner nature; That is openness and non-attachment, wisdom and objectivity, power, presence, love, gratitude and appreciation.
Your activism in the # MMIWG2s # nomorestolensisters movement is another way to take your practice beyond the yoga mat. Can you share more about the movement and why it is important for you to share it with your community?
The humanization of this struggle seeks to create a global network of liaison and support for Alaskan indigenous people and indigenous people that works for all women and reminds us of the resilience and power of women as a unified collective.
As a social justice movement, it is about honoring both my ancestry and aboriginal traditions while reducing my years of oppressive experience as an adopted native child, survivor of human trafficking, rejection, denial, sexualization and fetishization (pocahontas) of teenage adults because of my appearance.
From the perspective of a trauma-trained educator, I see it as my responsibility to fill the gap for access to trauma care. Mitigate oppression, defend and protect women and children (all ages, all ACEs, all races), and build communities based on humanity. The effects of invasion, colonization, settlement and forced assimilation continue to affect all generations. All over the world, barriers need to be overcome to address access and care as preventive, holistic and alternative healing. I don’t think we’re in a community if we don’t work together across nations to mitigate systemic racism, hatred and violence. My approach helps create more access and trauma treatment in the healing industry – especially for trauma survivors living in marginalized and BIPOC communities.

You recently overcome an assault that compromised your ability to get on the mat. What was it like overcoming this obstacle in a socially distant pandemic? Is there anything you learned from that injury on your rebound that feels different during that time?
When we remember who we are, we make our illuminated authenticity shine. It is the act of moving yourself forward.
Life asked me from an early age to choose only parts of my true self in order to survive. Along the way, I’ve learned that taking care of all parts of my true self brings greater resilience, more opportunity, and more quality to the relationships I have with myself, others, and nature. with life in general.
Respecting the physical body can be a struggle for many. Much of the self-abuse in our physical body arises from the pain of our emotional selves. General wellbeing requires that we take care of the ship we live in.
I found that my injury enabled me to develop a greater sense of clarity, strength, and healing in my home and the experience I know of myself. Indigenous peoples believe that when we come home we are sitting in our “sacred tire”. My approach to personal practice and coaching is about regaining personal freedom of choice by reviving and restoring personal desire and joy from the truest part of my heart.
This has become a daily practice for me to promote love and the sacred ways of building resilience out of my body through the power of my breath and my recovery. This practice and the physical and emotional sitting in these places of pain showed me areas in my body where unresolved emotions and feelings were hidden … after trauma, stored emotions, “problems in my tissues” from moment to moment and hour by hour – Hour brought me to surrender and relieve fear to provide access to forgiveness and healing. Over the years I have learned that I must support my change and healing with integrity in order to maintain the strength and resilience of my body. Most of my practice is having courage and not worrying if I am not strong enough. When I lean into my own ritual in times of transition, I return to the place where I find peace. The place I sacredly remember is an experience that I can have for myself and only for myself. This brings so much healing and for me it cut my recovery time by 3 weeks!

If you could practice one on one with a living or dead yoga teacher, who would it be?
Forever – Swami Kripalu. I want to thank him for everything his practice and lineage taught me and to remind myself of myself. I would share with him as I do to have was able to translate his philosophy of compassionate self-exploration and observation without judgment with communities in recovery and cross-cultural within the lineage of my native people. Show or be present. Pay attention to what has heart and meaning. Tell the truth without guilt or judgment. Be open to results, not bound by results.
