My favorite quote is from the Yoga Sutras as translated by Ravi Ravindra: "It is important not to abandon the practice of yoga because we believe it is driven by the wrong motivation. The practice of yoga itself transforms. Yoga has a magical quality." It does not matter if your motivation is to look good for beach season, relieve stress, or augment a physical therapy routine that does not fully meet your needs. Yoga will touch every area of your life. Expect improvements in physical and mental health, as well as relationships. I am blessed with a supportive and diverse community of teachers and mentors and truly appreciate every resplendent soul that I encounter on this life-changing journey!
