I'm inspired by anyone who has overcome adversity. There is something honorable...almost sacred...about someone defying the odds and achieving their wildest dreams. It's often a blend of will power and faith in something greater than themselves.
Why I Practice
Getting on the mat once a day is like any other necessity in life (eating, sleeping,...taking a shower:)
If I don't spend at least 15-90 minutes clearing tension from my body and my mind, I notice it for the rest of the day...it's like if you forget to brush your teeth. There may not be any visible signs, but you feel it between your teeth!
Why I Teach
At this point in my teaching career, it's about sharing what I've learned, and providing a safe environment for students to do something for themselves. Using the poses as a portal to look within rather that looking out for fulfillment.
