My own personal practice is reflected in the classes I teach. This practice involves mind, body, breath, assessment, observation, enhancement, and play. I aim to teach the ways I have found to live a mindful existence, not just a mindful movement practice. I believe I am sharing my own tools with those who wish to learn how to add things to their own toolbox. I believe every time I share I get to connect with someone and lift them up. If I can guide you to connect to yourself by means of breathing on purpose, listening to your body, listening to your thoughts, using a weak muscle to its full capacity, or find the edge of your strength, then I have succeeded in creating a connection between you and you. My goal is to inspire you to unlock the doors that reveal the depths of you. I encourage you to liberate yourself from your own bonds and to connect with the world around you as much as possible.
Yoga is time spent on you, and therefore an act of “receiving love” from you. In my “Recipe for a Full Heart”, the second of 3 ingredients is “receive love”. That includes, or perhaps begins with your own love, your own acceptance, your own compassion (on and off the mat) before you can receive these things from other people. Giving your practice your focus and attention will take you away from who you’re trying to be and bring you towards who you really are. You are courageous and you are incredibly powerful. You are a one of a kind, majestic, divine piece of art. At the root of your being, you are full of acceptance, compassion and love. And a full heart, is only a breath away.
