After 25 years of practicing yoga, I feel compelled to share what I’ve learned along the way with you. The physical practice has brought me strength, flexibility, and health; but the lessons I’ve learned, through facing and overcoming obstacles that once seemed so insurmountable, are much deeper than the physical. False assumptions that I once made about myself have been proven wrong, time after time. I have been continuously surprised and amazed by my ever-evolving journey through yoga. The story is still being written, and each day when I step onto my mat, new revelations await. I will always be a student. Approaching this practice with a beginner’s mind and an open heart, letting go of judgment, comparison, and self-criticism, has allowed me to experience the bliss and joy of healing. Each day I experience more calm, more ease, more openness, more stability, more balance, more peace. Each day I strip away another layer to reveal the essence of my true self. I hope to share this process with you along the way, and also to impart to you that it is never too late to start yoga; and that once you start, you will have this invaluable tool in your tool belt for the rest of your days. What you choose to do with it is up to you. Yoga is an opportunity to learn the art of self-healing. Put your own oxygen mask on first; then you will be ready and able to assist others.
In gratitude,
