Yarrow began exploring energy in the 70’s utilizing at-hand knowledge of Native American traditions, awareness of life experiences and applying this knowledge to her own life. Her curiosity of energy evolved into the study and practice of Feng Shui after attending a private workshop in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Yarrow recognized instantly that Feng Shui is the energy work with which she resonates and sees immediate benefit when principles are applied.

Yarrow’s “sense of a wave” is exemplified by being in the forefront of new information. As an author, professional speaker, Feng Shui consultant and practitioner and workshop facilitator, she helps people forge creative lifestyles using unfamiliar concepts. Her free-lance writing and teaching synthesizes traditional thinking with creative living by weaving in spiritual Eastern thought with the anatomy of energy.
