I came to yoga at a time when I felt very broken, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I continue returning to my mat to heal, connect, and grow. I teach yoga because of the profound effects a regular practice has had on my life. As a teacher I bear witness to breakthroughs, breakdowns, strength, growth, setbacks, hurting, healing, and most importantly connection…connection to oneself and connection to the consciousness that none of us are in this alone; we are all interconnected.
I truly believe yoga is for everyone. Not every type of yoga or teacher is for everyone, but yoga, the union of mind, body, and soul, is for everyone. Through my own practice and witnessing my students’ practices through injuries, illnesses, and the big and little hurdles life throws at us, I have learned that everyone’s practice looks different, and every day looks and feels different.
