My motto? YOGA IS LOVING, from here everything flows.
Before anything else, yoga is an healing art, so I try to make each and every one of my students feel comfortable and accepted in a safe and welcoming environment.
I repeat the following words often (like a mantra): "No judgments. No competition. No comparison - not yesterday or tomorrow, and NOT to the person next to you. Just BE in the moment, accept your strengths and love your limitations!" Throughout my yoga sessions I empower my students to be kind to themselves.
Another favorite of mine is: "You play the best game with the cards you get today!"
My hope is always that my students will leave the class supportive environment feeling better on multiple levels -
body, mind, heart and soul :-)
