Rita James

I came to this work after having experienced a personal hardship in my life and a friend invited me to a couple’s yoga class. My life was changed, forever.  I am a Scorpio sun with a Cancer moon and I mean real emotional business! I am a truth teller and appreciate honesty it gives more time for fun and less drama.  I am an artist at heart, my latest passion is creating flowers mandalas!

Rita’s Yoga Philosophy
I teach all my classes based in and around life experiences that I believe we all share.  I like to convey that human connection and caring is vital for a healthy nervous system and planet. I believe that our humanity lies in our most vulnerable moments; my classes support this type of awakening through healing postures and touch.

I want my students to know that I am not a guru.  I am woman that is intuitive and can support you in your development of what is calling you forward.  In doing so you become your own guru. I am just a guide.

In my class 
Come to my class prepared to feel a full range of emotions, maybe the ones that you’ve been trying to suppress. A portion of my restorative yoga class is based in touch and emotional release. Often times during an emotional release there is crying, I encourage you to flow with what arises.

I use special blends of essential oils that I travel to Josuha Tree on a regular basis to get. They provide a real loving touch and scent. Wear comfortable clothing and let go of all expectations that you may have of yourself or anyone else upon entering this sacred space and class.
