Teacher, Mentor & Training Faculty, E-RYT200,
My approach to yoga is intentional and mindful. Some days that means moving deep through the postures by the connection of body and breath and other days it is through slow with an internal focus. There are no two days the body is the same and I believe in meeting yourself on your mat for who you are at that very moment. I encourage students to find their own rhythm and be courageous in exploring what their own practice is. Be open to experiencing what is in store without expectations or ego.
My goal in teaching is that you will find someway it makes your life better. Maybe you feel less pain physically or emotionally, you find more self-confidence, you get creative, or you feel more grounded. Your mat is a space to be you, to learn about your true nature and cultivate awareness. My advice to students is to keep exploring yoga until you find a path that feels right. That means the right teacher, the right space and the right style for you. Yoga is for everyone.
I decided to get certified to deepen my own practice but in the end was inspired to help others find their own. I have found so much happiness on my mat. Even on the days where I feel down about life, when I'm ill, when I feel lacking in some way. I want everyone to be able to experience the joy found in a yoga practice.
