Live Life Feeling Soul Good
We live in a vibratory world. Our thoughts, emotions, and words all contribute to our energy field. When we become conscious of what we invest in vibrationally, we begin to live a more conscious life. Pain is inevitable, yet suffering is a choice. Now is the time to become a deliberate creator of the world you live in. If you wish to make changes, it requires the willingness and the belief that you can.
Inner alchemical practices, such as Sound Healing, Conscious Breathing, Traditional Yoga, Ceremony, and being present with Nature, provide us the tools we need to start the change from the inside out. These practices can tap into the inner powers of transformation. It can feel like dark clouds (metaphorically) being lifted from your heart and mind, allowing your inner light to shine. These practices help you feel inspired to begin to live your life with purpose. The interweaving of these traditional ancient practices awakens your Spirit to help you live your life Feeling Soul Good.

Igniting an interwoven tapestry of awareness adopted from various yogic and shamanic practices that contribute to the rising of our vibrations.

Awaken Your Peaceful Warrior, the Sacred Journey On the Mountain. Slocan Valley, B.C Sept 7,8,9 2018
Fear is nothing more than an obstacle that stands in the way of progress. In overcoming our fears, we can move forward, stronger and wiser.
This adventurous weekend takes place in the wilderness away from the comforts of home, which may invoke some challenges and fears of the unknown. When we move into nature in a Sacred way we tune into the consciousness of this invisible existence.
The warrior walks mindfully, with respect, and connects with all that is from the heart. In turn, the energy reflects a feeling of oneness.
This weekend will help you:
- Increase the connection between nature and yourself
- Overcome fears of the darkness and the unknown
- Unite with something greater: an invisible energy that moves through all time and space
- Build courage and confidence
- Cultivate inner peace of mind
- Listen deeper to nature
- Thrive in a supportive, encouraging, respectful, small group environment
- Transform limitations
- Deepen your spiritual connection
This weekend is about much more than just climbing a mountain. We will honour the land in a different way and connect with the consciousness that resides in the mountains, plants, trees, animals and waters.

It might sound silly to think of having someone coach your breathing, right? If you’re not breathing, you would not be alive, right?
After a decade of teaching pranayama and yoga trainings, as well as two decades of personal daily yoga practice, including both Pranayama and conscious-connected breathing, I realise that regardless of how much practice we have, we all have that potential moment to fall into unconscious patterns triggered by stress. As soon as we have this experience it instantaneously affects the breathing and activates the fight-or-flight nervous system. This, in turn, ignites a stream of stress hormones, which impact our physical and mental state of being. The body is a mirror to our nervous system. There is no outer switch to the system; it works from the inside out. When we are stressed or holding incoherent emotions (fear, doubt, anger, etc.), this turns on the sympathetic nervous system, affecting the proper functioning of all the body’s systems. This includes your breathing.
My breath coaching supports any and all persons, regardless of previous yoga or breathing experience. I support those who want to make changes in their life but feel stuck, those who want to heal themselves (it worked for me!), or to cultivate more awareness and peace in life.
For when we breath deeper, the whole body not only gets oxygenated, but it also helps provide nourishment to the cells and, in turn, our body. It’s the way we can turn on the inner switch to the parasympathetic (rest-and-repair) nervous system. Just reflect on when you’re feeling stressed compared to how your body feels after taking a deep breath.
All sessions are available through Skype or in person. A complimentary 20-minute consultation is offered to all those interested.
Various packages are available to choose from.
“My experience with Sequoia goes beyond the weeks during teacher training in Goa, India. A people-person with a huge heart, Sequoia is always inspirational and loving. Her sound healing sessions brought me beyond what I knew and was absolutely life-changing for myself and many others. Every lesson with Sequoia is an 'awareness adventure' , beyond the 5 senses and deep into the oceans of our souls. Through chanting and pranayama sessions, I've attained a better knowledge of my inner body and started to believe in the amazing effects pranayama has on my body.”
“Sequoia is the physical embodiment of light and joy. She lives her passion and shares her gifts with incredible generosity. Wise beyond her years, she exudes confidence and a peacefulness that is magnetic and inspirational. Sound events with Sequoia are never to be missed. I love where I go from one of her sound journeys.”
“I am forever grateful to have met Sequoia. She has such incredible knowledge, teachings, and energy. Sequoia was one of my teachers on a one month yoga teacher training course in India, and from the very first pranayama class we had with her, I felt I had encountered a very unique and powerful teacher. During my time in India I was lucky to experience Sequoia's yoga classes, sound healings, and ceremonies. Her understanding and insight into yoga and spiritual exploration are matched by her passion for sharing them with others. And her sense of humour is infectious! I have not stopped telling people about the "things I learned from Sequoia", and I look forward to the day I can see this incredible teacher again.”
“I first met Sequoia in Kelowna, B.C , Canada 2005. She is an encouraging workshop facilitator, a talented masseuse, sound healer, and an inspirational, wise woman. I am thankful for her teachings in my first official lessons on the subtle body of the Chakras. Her presentation of the profound materials and interactive teaching methods allowed me to become more aware of the connections within and around myself. Sequoia's understanding of vibrational sound and healing touch has allowed me to walk away from her treatments feeling happy to be me. She is a positively unique human being and I am thankful to have been impacted by her”
“Sequoia, gives abundance of wisdom and knowledge, passion and love. Which effected me deeply in all my relationships in my life, through her words teaching and sounding, which I didn't truly realize until a few months after returning home from Bali. It's been a blessing”
“Sequoias Pranayama course helped me learn more about my self, increase my confidence, stay centered. I have deepened my pranayama practice, and realize how deeper the yoga philosophy really is”
“My experience with Sequoia and her team was much more then a Yoga training it was a journey. I loved everything about the training and would highly recommend the training to everybody, it changed my life with such a positive impact” Sequoia is an amazing teacher with an endless wealth of knowledge. She creates a sacred space, which is safe, healing and filled with love”
“I would totally recommend this training for everyone. I learnt so much about myself. I learnt yoga is not a sport but it is a way of life. Sequoia, displays this as a living example. I am so happy that now I know how to properly get into and out of each posture”
“I have learnt so much from Sequoia, the main teaching I learnt is how to listen to myself. I loved everything I have learnt as there is really so much content covered”
“Singing bowls produce sounds which invoke a deep state of relaxation which naturally assists one in entering into meditation, the ultimate goal being enlightenment. They are a quintessential aid to meditation, and can be found on private Buddhist altars, and in temples, monasteries and meditation halls throughout the world.”
