In my classes I attempt to create a space where one can get in touch
with their body. To me being spiritual means being embodied. Most of
us spend so much time in our heads that we forget to feel. I find the
breath to be a gateway to the body. By focusing on our breath we can
clear our minds, come into our bodies, and engage in physical
sensation. That is my focus as I teach.
I also see yoga as a metaphor for life. The more mindful I am on the
mat the more mindful I am off of the mat. The more I slow my practice
down the more I slow down in life. If there is something missing in my
day to day I introduce it to my practice. I have found this to work
for me and my hope is that it works for others.
My relationship to my mind, body, and life has changed dramatically
since beginning my yoga practice. It has brought me so much joy that I
want to share what I have learned with others in hope that it will
effect them positively as well.
