Yoga is a life-long healing practice and a state of mind. By immersing ourselves in the sensations of the body we can distill our experience to the present, rising above the stuckness in our bodies and flickering in our heads.
It’s not about flexibility. You’ll learn to develop attention, disconnect from doubt, and better understand your natural state of being. You'll learn to participate with each posture, surrendering to what’s available to your body. This discipline allows me to see ways of least resistance and walk my path more decisively.
I simply adore the yoga practice, in the geekiest way. After extensive study at South Boston Yoga, I participated in their 500-hour teacher training in 2009. I heard the calling profoundly and took the leap, leaving my 'career' in architecture to wait tables and practice. Today, yoga has moved from flirtation to love affair. I've been teaching and giving bodywork full-time for 9 years! I continued formal study with Barbara Benagh with another 500 hour training in 2014, and Restorative Yoga Training with Judith Laseter. The way I move changes so much year to year and I believe it's important to always remain a student of life. I spend my time addressing the 'special needs,' the experience, the human, rather than the show and prefer not to play music. The ability to focus on what's going on inside is just too good!
Nothing makes me more enthusiastic than sharing my experience. I believe that no one style of yoga holds the key to understanding ourselves. My deepest gratitude goes out to the teachers who have influenced me most, opening the doors of my heart: David & Todd of South Boston Yoga, Cat Kabira, Barbara Benagh, Richard Freeman, Carrie Owerko
