And the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.  T.S. Eliot

Born and brought up in New Jersey, I have called Austin, Texas home since 2005. I completed an undergraduate and master’s degree in electrical engineering, and worked in this field for several years before unanticipated life changes called me to re-examine my heart and direction. In time I found myself taking part in a yoga teacher training, and soon after deepening my exploration and study of meditation. These teachings and practices have supported me in countless ways, paving a continuing journey of acceptance, integration and healing.IMG_1818

In classes, I weave together the wisdom of yogic and non-dual teachings, but offer first from a place of intuition and the heart of my own experience.  My hope is to create safe spaces for individuals to restore, renew and connect. As rhythms slow down and soften, we have the opportunity to meet life with deepening intimacy, and to come home to ourselves and the wisdom within.



I have had the privilege of learning from Richard Miller, Stephanie Lopez, Adyashanti, Sarah Powers and David Swenson. Their wisdom and humility have informed me deeply.

Apart from formal training, my greatest teachers are my girls, Sophia and Sonia, my husband, Herb, and life itself.  Lastly, I offer respect and gratitude to my parents, Manju and Pannalal Jhawar, who is no longer with us.  Their influence is perhaps the deepest one I carry.
