"Any type of change or growth takes awareness and practice.
That practice and awareness is never ending; it is fluid.
We will have many situations that arise that give us the opportunity to get that practice, even if we don’t want it. 
For today, just be a witness to it all. 
Witness the interactions with others.
Witness the self talk.
Witness how you react to what others say to you.
Witness how your heart, your body and your Soul react to all of it. 
You are not required to do anything. 
Just witness."
-Jen Yockey

Hi!  I am so glad that you are here.  Please have a look around. Take your time and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.  You can do that here.

A little about me:

Most of my adult life I have been a teacher.  Out of college, I wrote curriculum and grants for inner city schools in Seattle and Bellevue. After I found my post college sea legs, I taught golf for nearly 20 years.  In 2011, I started a new teaching gig; raising my son. However, I think he is teaching me more than I am teaching him.

I am a Yoga & Meditation Teacher, Owner of Gather Movement + Wellness and Founder of The Path™.  I am an Author, Coach (Movement, Wellness & Recovery), Professional Student and Chronic Dog Rescuer. My most important role, however, is partnering with my husband to be an example and a light for our son.
