I am grateful to have a daily dose of inspiration from the students who attend my classes and join me on the retreats that I lead. It is beyond inspiring to witness such tremendous growth and courage, let alone facilitate great transformation in the lives of many. My family is also a huge source of inspiration; they have triumphed over immeasurable adversity and lived to tell the tale. Good music also keeps me going.
Why I Practice
Even though I've been practicing yoga for 23 years and teaching it for 12, it is essential that I always remain a student, both in the yoga studio and in life. Teachers must always remain the student. Yoga has a way of humbling us no matter how much we think we know.
Why I Teach
Yoga has helped me through some seriously difficult times. It is a privilege to give back the many gifts yoga has bestowed in my own life. Honestly, I'm just here to remind people of how incredible they are already. The fact that I can have a great time and make an honest living while doing it is just gravy!
