One of my favorite activities is reading, so I frequently find quotations that speak to me. One of my recent favorites is:
“What if our religion was each other
If our practice was our life
If prayer, our words
What if the temple was the Earth
If forests were our church
If holy water-the rivers, lakes, and ocean
What if meditation was our relationships
If the teacher was life
If wisdom was self-knowledge
If love was the center of our being.” ~ Ganga White
What made you want to teach Yoga?
My love of yoga stems from the balance, inner peace and sense of well-being my practice brings to my life. I believe we all have the ability to access this deep sense of inner peace given the proper tools, techniques and practices. I teach yoga to help others learn ways to integrate body, mind and spirit for wellness and empowerment.
What is your favorite yoga pose?
My favorite standing yoga pose is Utthita Trikonasana, Extended Triangle Pose. I love the way the pose strengthens the legs, stretches the hips and opens the chest and shoulders.
What advice would you give to someone just starting out yoga?
I think the most important thing for beginning yoga students to recognize is that your yoga practice is about you – your body, your mind, your spirit. Respect your body’s inner wisdom and limitations. Don’t push yourself to do anything that feels wrong for you. Progress in your yoga practice is defined by the healing and unity the practice promotes in your own body, mind and spirit.
