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 a transformative process and I believe everyone should somehow keep connected with the process of transformation."
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 in the world. A patient yogi I wasn’t always but I’ve always moved and grooved my way through life! I have always 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 textural relationship with process shows up as my own and to nurture the components that lie in the traditions and philosophies of yoga. Practicing yoga helps me stand in my truth, that feels like when I hear a favorite rock song on the radio, potent and familiar. 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 in this discipline (yoga) the freedom and inquiry to transform.
