My Yoga Story:
Yoga, for me, has been a wild ride – one I would not have missed for anything.
It has terrified me, shaken me, enlivened me, and ultimately saved me (from my own mind). It taught me how to breath, pay attention, touch the earth and to love. It has shown me that we are more than just physical, three dimensional beings and yet, at the same time, we are human, we are messy and we are beautiful.
I have had the privilege of studying with and learning from many great teachers ~ Some known throughout the US and India, some no longer in body, but whose presence I still continuously feel, and some whom I never learned their names ~ like the man I sat next to on a train in Mumbai, who taught me mantras and mudras that I still use today (which profoundly helped me through some difficult times).
I have also been blessed with the ‘Ugly’ side of Yoga ~ the dark teachers ~ the ones that tore me down to the core, taught me what I did not want to emulate, and ultimately gave me the greatest lesson in freedom.
