All-pervading force, immanent in all the beings of all the worlds
Energy drives and enlivens the manifest world
The quivering of the leaves on the gentlest of breezes
The ripple on the pond of the mind as thought arises
The power of subatomic particles
Exploding into space to create new worlds and stars
Within and without, here and there

Gauri Ma Grace
"What's in a name? that which we call a rose/ By any other name would smell as sweet".
Like a phoenix reborn I have arisen from the ashes. Teaching yoga has been my life long passion and inspiration, a way of life. Through my commitment to a yogic lifestyle however I have at times placed myself in situations that have been less than authentic.
My past has however also gifted me enormous skills in teaching and facilitating. I have been in service to women through yoga and work as a doula for over 25 years and now focus my energy to rites of passage for women of all ages who are welcomed to the
Women with Spirit program.
Previously known as Swami Gurupremananda Saraswati I am now pleased to carry the vibration of Gauri Ma Grace. Through studying the diverse practices of yoga I have come to know the power of symbol, myth and ritual as tools for self understanding. Trained in Transpersonal Art Therapy I am pleased to further integrate creative processes into my work with women.
Now in my maga years after birthing and raising 6 children I am inspired to express the power of the post menopausal woman, unafraid and unashamed.
