I started doing yoga initially for the physical benefits. I quickly learned that postures (asana) were only one part of yoga. Studying yoga philosophy and its rich traditions has helped me discover so much more about myself than what positions my body can achieve. It has taught me patience, kindness, mindfulness and acceptance (to name just a few). My yoga practice continues to fulfill me because I have learned to adapt it and make it relevant to my life.
Helping people to understand themselves and start from where they are, rather than where they think they should be, has become a primary focus of my teaching. I truly believe that making time for self care is a selfless act. By becoming the best version of ourselves we have more to give to our family, community and our world.
