Thomasina is a certified yoga instructor through the Yoga Center of Minneapolis and holds a bachelor's degree in Psychology and Women studies through the University of MN Duluth. Prior to teaching yoga she worked as a mental health case manager for many years. She is currently providing yoga and sound meditation to children and adults.
Thomasina is practiced in mindfulness, meditation and a variety of other wellness modalities. She is called to the power of sound meditation through personal experience and training with the instruments.
Her teaching style focuses on the breath and quieting the mind. Through gentle cuing she suggests that the practitioner hold the pose long enough to fully experience it in their body and connect with the breath. She teaches her students that the breath is a tool they will have with them always, even off the mat.
Thomasina uses sound meditation instruments as a component to bring the listener to a place where the body is relaxed and the mind is still. She suggests that this is the place where healing can begin. Students learn to focus their attention on specific overtones, vibrations and notes created by the instruments. The instruments chosen are designed to bring peace but also aid in any internal processing that a practitioner may chose to do. The practitioner will learn to witness and release, both thoughts and emotions, bringing their attention back to the breath and back to the sound around them.
Instruments used often include: singing bowls, meditation chimes, shruti box and gong.
Thomasina considers herself to be a guide and peer, providing tools for each practitioner to awaken the teacher and healer within themselves.
