MY INTENTION AS A TEACHER
I share the practice of yoga to help people connect more deeply with their breath, their body and themselves. My aim in any style of class is to encourage an attitude of internal investigation that allows students to experience their practice in a grounded, authentic, and liberating way.
The beauty of yoga is that our experience of it is so personal: “Yoga is a journey of the self, through the self, to the self” (The Bhagavad Gita). This ongoing journey can help to shed the layers that we often rely on, sometimes unconsciously, to cover up our true selves. How can we live fully if we are out of touch with who we are and what we want? Through the practice of turning inward and being present, we can develop a deeper self-awareness and begin to explore all of the corners of ourselves, creating a fertile ground for the seeds of our love, wisdom, and compassion to take root and grow.
