As in life, balance in our Yoga practice is more about our conscious awareness of the present moment than it is about physically muscling our way through the pose or the circumstance presented to us. I believe that Yoga nourishes the Soul and that the time we spend on the mat working on the Self is helping to elevate the collective consciousness in our communities. Yoga transformed my life over the last decade by strengthening my sense of Self and my physical body, so I am inspired by my own spiritual evolution to share the gift of Yoga with the world.
Although my educational background is concentrated in Geology, I consider my Self to be a student of the Universe. As with everything in this life, my Yoga practice is constantly evolving and I make a conscious effort to explore all styles and expressions of Yoga to build and expand both my practice and my ability to communicate the intricacies of the Yoga postures to my students. The powerful Vinyasa and the restorative Raja Yoga classes are the perfect complement for every Body in creating a balance of strength and flexibility while permitting students of all levels to practice together regardless of physical limitations or injuries. I incorporate both Vinyasa and Raja classes during the Yoga retreats I lead around the world that give students the freedom to attain balance of mind, body, and spirit to reinvigorate the Soul while connecting with our Mother Earth in spectacular locations across the globe.
In every class my goal is to give students an enhanced awareness of the power of their own presence and the power of their contribution to the global collective consciousness, knowing that the work we do on ourselves on the Yoga mat is the preparation for the work we do in our communities and the world. The energy we create in our own lives will shift the collective consciousness of the global community, so we must make a positive contribution and BE the source of positive energy in our own lives to leave behind a legacy of love.
