I am a mom, author, DJ, teacher, minister, psychedelic therapist, community organizer, life coach, podcaster, and entrepreneur. I have taught yoga since 2002. Known for my authentic self-expression, humorous yet grounded, I empower others to embody their soul’s wisdom. I use my Master’s Degree in Transpersonal Psychology and life coaching to bring a real-world mix of eastern spirituality and western psychology to my students for remembering, empowerment and transformation.
My life is dedicated to the study of yoga, specializing in Yoga Psychology, Bhakti Yoga, Yoga History + Philosophy, Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Meditation and Self-Awakening Yoga. I can be found leading classes on Insight Timer or from my studio Source meditation | space in Boise, ID. I work with the Boise Ketamine Clinic to guide Ketamine Assisted Therapy.
I’m currently most excited to offer my first meditation album “Guidance” available on all streaming platforms!
My online yoga classes and book “Vinyasa Yoga Made Simple: 27 days of Self Discovery” are available through udaya.com. They are inspired by my own yoga journey, the process of learning to trust my body, my prana, and my connection to the divine. As a lover of the wild and free, I have taught at festivals like Burning Man, Bonnaroo, Symbiosis Gathering, Eclipse Festival, WTF, Udaya Live, Wanderlust, Women & Leadership Conference, and Sun Valley Wellness Fest. I humbly connect with a deep legacy of wisdom by being on Faculty at Esalen Institute in Big Sur. As a passion project that weaves together my love of music , yoga and community, I am the co-director and producer of Yogafort for Treefort Music Fest.
My mother named me Marisa, but my teacher Ram Dass blessed me with the name Radha. In 2018 I was visiting him at his home in Maui, supporting my partner who was working on an album with him. At the end of the recording session, after giving the name Krishna to my partner, and with a twinkle in his eye, he looked straight at me and said, “And you, you are Radha!” Then slapped his thigh and laughed like it was the most delightful thing in the world. I laughed with him, full of joy. I like it when people call me Radha. It reminds me of my connection to my beloved guide and invites me to be as deeply devoted, loving and generous as possible.
