In teaching I want to see us locate and find our individual, internal, true self through experiencing our body in expressive movement on our mat. Bringing awareness to our strengths and weaknesses, mental physical or spiritual. To feel and remain grounded and present in the midst of life’s cycles.
What yoga means to me
Practicing yoga is a place where I can come into my own world, my own space. I feel exactly where I am at the present moment, emotionally, spiritually, and physically. It helps me recharge and gather strength and let go of unnecessary weight I may pick up in life’s circumstances. The courage to take risks. And be open to good things.
One word to describe me is “ecstatic”
I would say people know I’m honest, loyal, and funny.
I consciously put an effort toward putting others first.
I like a challenge. I believe healing happens. I love a good joke.
I like to cook for a crowd. I listen.
Nutrition and preserving health is important to me. I enjoy learning about societies in history of all cultures. And I know there is more to life than what we can see with the naked eye.
I was introduced to yoga by my mom when I was a teenager. I came back to it as a mother myself looking to help deal with stress. I was instantly hooked once I felt the yoga glow. And when what I was learning on the mat showed up into my daily life. I could stretch up easier to grab a dish and developed more strength to accomplish day to day tasks. And I could breath and regulate my breath along with my body. Still working on the mind part of that! On top of an overwhelming feeling of contentment being in my own skin. I’ve practice yoga with goals and discipline for almost a decade now and feel like I have just begun at times. I have collected nuggets of wisdom from my own experiences on and off the mat. I give much love to my teachers and friends who have invested sweat and tears into my practice of life. I am eternally grateful.
