Hannah’s Life Experience:
If You Can Dream It You Can Do It
Hannah was raised in a small village in Southwest, Alaska. She grew up along the Naknek River, known for its World Class Wild Salmon Fishery, thriving Grizzly Bear population, and the expanse of Arctic Tundra that surrounds the area.
Enduring the extremes of long, cold, dark winters and the hard, intense work of lasting summer days, instilled a sense of deep respect and love for the wild world, testing Strength of Will, Adaptability, Independence and Vision. At the same time, life in an isolated, rural village sparked her desire for Adventure and Creative Expression, encouraging Boundless Dreaming a Rich Imagination and the Power of Spirit.
In College, Hannah studied Art in its various forms of expression including modern dance, theatre, art history, photography, music, drawing, painting, sculpture and ceramics. She graduated from the University of Montana in 2007 with a Fine Arts Degree and Minor in Biology.

During this Global Immersion, she took her journey to Sea, learning to SCUBA Dive along the Great Barrier Reef and the Fiji Islands.

Hannah’s Teaching Philosophy
For me, yoga is a way of life. It’s a journey that guides the Soul through the many layers of being, to the core of the essential self. During that journey, we begin to shed old skins and false identities, we conquer limiting beliefs and begin to understand just how powerful we are as a force of creation in the world.
Yoga is a practice that goes way beyond the mat, or studio, or retreat center. It goes deep to the center of the self and how we think, feel, act, and create in this world in every moment of our lives. The practices and teachings of yoga have endured the trials of the ages and stood the tests of time and are still actively used today with increasingly awe-inspiring results. The power of a committed practice yields phenomenal results for the dedicated practitioner.
I practice and teach yoga because it has become an aspect of my dharma or soul calling. Initially, I pursued the many benefits yoga has to offer through the physical practice of Hatha Yoga, such as health, vitality, balance, harmony, and sense of wellbeing….to name a few.
However, as my practice has evolved into the ancient roots of Traditional Tantra Yoga and Shamanic Dance, Yoga has become more of a spiritual journey within towards greater self-awareness, discipline, maturity, transformation, soul liberation, enlightenment and overall union with life and Source.
I see life as a Dance with Divinity, and the practice of yoga keeps me in tune with the natural rhythm of the Cosmos, in harmony with the Universe, and aligned with the Eternal flow of Creation.
In this two-hour transformational workshop, we will invoke the Power of Shakti as the force of Kundalini and explore her journey of awakening through the Chakras from Root to Crown. We will use traditional tantra and yoga practices to activate Shakti within the body and express her currents of creative energy through us. We will look at the many faces of Shakti and how she reveals herself in the natural world and through our human experience.
We will journey with Shakti into Shamanic Dance as a practice to fully activate, liberate, and cultivate the Power of Shakti within and through us. Lastly, our Awakening Shakti workshop concludes with a Creative Art exercise to channel and crystalize the potency of ourselves as embodiments of Shakti.
In this two-hour transformational workshop, we will invoke Shiva as Supreme Consciousness. We will explore the relationship between Shiva & Shakti, or Consciousness and Energy as defined by Traditional Tantra. We will explore the “7 Laws of Success”, as given by Shiva, and learn about Shiva as the “Wild Yogi” and his “Dance of Destruction.”
We will use traditional tantra and yoga practices to activate Shiva within and open our minds into vast awareness. We will explore awakening Shiva through Shamanic Dance as a practice to fully activate, liberate, and cultivate the Power of Shiva within and through us. Lastly, our Awakening Shiva workshop concludes with a Creative Art exercise to channel and crystalize the potency of ourselves embodying Shiva.
Awakening Divine Union
Our final two-hour transformational workshop concludes with uniting the energy of Shakti with the Consciousness of Shiva, awakening to the Divine Union of our inner masculine and feminine power. In this workshop we will explore the practices of Tantric Alchemy and the inner marriage of fire and flow, purusha and prakriti, consciousness and energy.
We will journey with Shiva and Shakti united as one through Shamanic Dance as a practice to fully activate, liberate, and cultivate the Power of Divine Union within and through us.
Lastly, our workshop concludes with a Creative Art exercise to channel and crystalize the potency of ourselves as embodiments of Divine Union.
Each Workshop will be approximately 2 hours.
