When we share yoga, we collectively make the world a better place. Yoga can help us be kinder, more content people, with better tools to cope with and celebrate life.
I believe the practice of yoga helps each of us minimize our physical and emotional suffering. It gives us a place to drop our old stories and become more of who we know ourselves to be.
As a teacher, I love to create a safe and supportive environment where this can happen. Through slow, mindful movement and plenty of time for breath, we have the space to shrug off any hard, outer shell of tension that is keeping us from feeling free.
Its not a “something’s wrong with you” kind of yoga. Its the kind of practice that helps you see your own strength, believe in yourself and rise up to your best life.
Its the kind of yoga that asks you to hold a handstand or do a dropback, not because it looks cool (though it does), but because it teaches you to show up, be resilient and feel more alive.
Its the kind of yoga that allows you to relax in child’s pose or take a simpler variation of a posture, not to escape, but because it is courageous to rest when you need it.
Yoga offers these practical life skills, these tools that help us thrive. This feeling of wholeness, wellbeing and grace is the reason we practice yoga.
I hope we can meet on the mat soon, and breath-by-breath, take our own steps towards making the world, and ourselves, healthier, happier and even more peaceful.
