Recently someone asked me the question, "Why do you teach yoga?". The response fell effortlessly from my mouth, "I teach yoga because I practice yoga. Also because it is an interesting and informative process and I believe everyone should somehow keep connected with the process of being informed."
And when it comes down to it, I like to learn, I like to be in movement with my body, and I really find the importance of patience a beautiful gift; one in which yoga cultivates. A patient one I wasn’t always. Time has been on my side often and I’ve moved and grooved my way through life! I have engaged with the hails and fails of being a modern day rock-n-roll woman. Rock-n-roll is in my blood, and now, fortunately, so is yoga.
My personal practice of yoga is to establish a relationship with myself through process. To show up as myself in whatever why the is and to nurture the components that lie in the traditions and philosophies of yoga. The classes I teach always invite participants to a place where they rejoice in what is, to educate about the fortifying qualities of alignment in postures combined with fluency of their breath. I look forward to sharing with others this discipline (yoga) as well as the freedom and inquiry to transform.
