MorningStar Yoga


MorningStar Yoga classes are rich in personalized attention. Classical yoga recognizes a unique needs of the individual. For this reason each class requires private instruction. There are no group classes. All sessions are taught by MorningStar passing on the beautiful wisdom ways of her teachers Stan Hafner and Johanna Sullivan. World Peace Yoga Retreats are an unique opportunity for students to study and experience yoga within community and are scheduled according to student and world needs. 


Yoga is the ability to focus and direct mental activity ( Patanjali’s Sutra 1:2).  


MorningStar Yoga begins with a simple and sacred meditation using one of the aspects of yoga philosophy as the focus. The following are also incorporated into each private session.


  • Pranayama - conscious breathing

  • Asana - postures and movement

  • Vinyasa Yoga - rhythms or flows of asanas

  • Chants - vedic and/or oral traditions

  • Sanskrit - names of asanas and yogic philosophy

  • Sutras - yogic philosophy

  • Chimes and singing bowl - sacred sound

  • Altars - sacred space

Students wear comfortable clothing, bring a water bottle, their own mat and meditation cushion. Each private yoga session is offered at MorningStar Spiritual Retreat Centre.


“Yoga is not about what you can do; it is about doing what you can; and with a deep breath, a soft heart and a quiet mind”

Help support our cause! 

In our modern world, it is not easy to let what is natural be natural – to honor a knowing that existed before we did. It is even more difficult to preserve it. If it is not preserved within us, it will not be preserved in our families and communities, our policies, our hospitals, our schools or our nations. Most importantly, it becomes lost to our future generations.


Your contribution helps sustain the Holyland and the Spiritual Retreat Centre for Instinctual Living. The Centre offers programs of education and spiritual direction specifically for midwifery, childbirth, wellness therapies, yoga, as well as personal and collective spiritual retreats.  


We are a diverse community and I, the founder, am a woodland Mystic of Cherokee ancestry. I place all donations on my altar in Rose Cottage to receive a blessing of return for your happiness, health, wealth and holiness. If you send a donation, please include a love note.  


“I promise to live, in ever growing awareness, a life of simplicity; to give more than I take and to quiet the mind to single and simple purpose; to live with the knowledge that I am the temporary guardian of all I possess and to stand ready to share when love calls.”
