Skylar discovered yoga through a prenatal practice during the pregnancy of her second child, Silas. The teacher of that class, who has become her guru, awoke a remembrance of wisdom that lives inside the heart. To Skylar, yoga is a return to being, a remembrance of the true nature of life. This resonance of the heart, which echoes as an internal, infinite hum, has unveiled the path of yoga, and inspired an observance of herself, as herself existing in a world surrounding. It has taken her into the depths of being, and in sitting in herself, with herself, as herself, she discovered the expansive love of the universe, the pulse of life that swirls in every being, wanders through every living cell.
Spanda, the delicate dance of balance between opposites, interweaving of expansion and contraction, the interplay of light and dark, the ceaseless seamless exchange between gravity and levity, the intertwining of sky-soaring Shiva and earth-rooted Shakti, this eternal spiraling steadiness of opposite forces in unity is yoga. Attuning to the song of the universe, the cry of creation, the melodious rush of life is yoga, and that is what Skylar wishes to share with others. Embodying this truth, acting in authenticity, amusing at existence itself creates a life of joy and fulfillment.
Skylar is certified RYT 200 with Yoga Alliance and continues her study through workshops and trainings, assisting other yoga teachers and, most importantly, through practice. Yoga is the experience, the doing, the practice, the here and now of being, the embodiment of spanda. Skylar has a husband and two young children, Isla and Silas, a dog and a cat.
