What in your practice inspires you to teach? My yoga and meditation practices have served me well both
on and off the yoga mat. Yoga has given me the opportunity to come to know the many benefits of uniting body, mind and spirit; as well as the opportunity to learn to practice and live mindfully. Yoga and its branches have provided a framework and a path for living both on and off the yoga mat. It is the opportunity to share this path that leads me to teach Gentle Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga and Meditation. Whether teaching or practicing I am always learning.
Tell us a little about your yoga journey and how this influences what you bring across in your teaching. I came to the practice of Yoga through Meditation Practice over thirty years ago. I was searching my way through recovery from post traumatic stress disorder I found healing in the very first class I took. My journey began with Mediation Practice. Yoga followed soon after. I found healing in the very first class I took. Both of these practices provided great support. I have been practicing and teaching ever since.
What is your favorite activity outside of yoga and how does yoga help this activity. My current passion is learning to play the piano. My Yoga practice has helped by giving me the ability to focus on, and breathe with, the music. It also has given me the strength and patience to sit and practice. The flexibility and strength that come from a consistent yoga practice are a great aid to all the physical activities I love to experience.
