I love yoga because I have felt the effects of the practice to have an immensely spiritual and life changing impact on the way I live, feel, interact with others and how I react to my own emotions and impulses. Yoga calms my ever-busy mind, shuts down the meaningless chatter, and gives me a new prospective on everyday tasks.
I practice yoga because it gives me a sense of belonging to a community of like-minded people, in search of bettering their physical and mental well beings.
I practice yoga to give me physical strength and to help push me beyond where I believe my limits are.
All in all, I practice yoga because it makes me a kinder, better person, to others and to myself.
“While doing yoga we are more ourselves and more than ourselves.”
Who am I? I'm just an ordinary woman who found that this practice helped heal my brokenness and offered comfort in community. When I first started yoga it was an occasional trip to my mat to help me to feel rejuvenated, stand up taller, and support my high impact sports: sand volleyball, skiing, running, and weight lifting, to name a few.
What I felt as my body started to break down and sustain injury as result of 49 years of high impact sports, was a bit of disappointment that I might have to give up staying "active".
I found my way back to the mat via embarking in Core Power teacher training - learning that a daily practice of power yoga combines the physicality and challenge of high impact sports with the breath, heat and postures.
I discovered how to integrate spirituality deep into my body and a new season of fitness that empowers and strengthens - while offering a community of supportive people.
