MamaSutra Loving Arts is my life work. I am a yogini, and through my practice I have discovered that we need consciousness, comfort, creativity and connection of these elements to live well. With support and practice,these components are within our reach. As a doula, I guide new parents & families to steadiness. As a lactation specialist, I support, promote, protect breast-and infant feeding.

Welcome to my website. I am Sokhna Heathyre, visionary of MamaSutra Loving Arts, and an elementally embodied woman enjoying life and collecting the components of traditional healing arts. While touring internationally as a vocalist and facilitating yoga retreats, the world revealed a temple of my dreams. A practicing yogini since 1992, I teach a sensual blend of Hatha-embraced Kundalini Yoga which continues to evolve through my personal practice. The healing sessions that I offer combine the healing modalities of herbalism, aroma therapy, cupping, deep listening & intuiting, and sound/vibrational therapies. I bow deeply in continuous reverence to my beloved teachers: her Beloved Cubs, her Sacred Relationship, Robin Janis, Brooke Meyers (the lineage of BKS Iyengar), Laughing Lotus Yoga School, Queen Afua & the priestesses of Smai Tawi, Krishna Kaur Khalsa (the lineage of Yogi Bhajan), Debra Pascali Bonaro & Ibu Robin Lim (DONA/Eat Pray Doula), Ancient Song Doulas, Amy Jo Goddard, Karen Rose, Julia Graves, Myrna & Ken Martin, Melissa Spamer, Rama Jyoti Vernon, Aditi Devi, Laura Antelmi, Wendelin Scott, Amy Spurlock, and Julie Chase ~ as well as the members of community who guide her in her moral conduct each day.
