One day, not too many years ago, I started thinking I wanted to experience yoga. I had read about how good it was for the body. I'd seen the magazine ads of people doing yoga and they looked so fit, relaxed and serene. I started envisioning being inside my body lengthening muscle, smoothing out knots, feeling everything from my toes all the way to the top of my head. It was a really nice picture. I went to my first class a few months later. It didn't take long for me to see there was so much more to it than just a workout. Becoming fit was not just about the physical body but also becoming fit in the mind. The postures were just a way to get to the really good stuff housed in the head. I saw how a physical practice could open a door to the emotions and to the soul. It has provided me with answers I have looked for much of my life. Ones tucked away in the tissues of my body. I wanted to share what I found so beneficial to me with others. I took the 200 hour Teacher Training at Antahsara Yoga Shala in 2017 and started teaching there. One of the things I find so important to my practice, and in my life, is the breath. My classes are slower paced, have a big focus on the breath and really experiencing the postures. It's all about the journey.
