Breath of Life
Yoga & Meditation
Yogis have known for ages that it is the regularity of breath that brings good health; and that the irregularity of breath is the cause of all illness. That the way to bring order and harmony to our body, to bring order and harmony to our mind, to harmonize body with mind, and to harmonize body and mind with spirit, is by the breath. It is the development, the knowledge of and the practice of breath which help to get ourselves straightened out, to put ourselves in tune and to bring order to our being.
Within each posture/ asana, students will not only be instructed to align one’s body accordingly, but one will be guided to turn ones attention to breath. We will practice the control of breath, its balance, its rhythm, the expanding, lengthening, broadening and centralizing of the breath. A space will be held for each student to cultivate a relationship with breath, which through consistent practice will come to act as a guide through physical, mental and emotional limitations bringing one inwards toward the ultimate goal of self-discovery.
My yoga journey began in 2009 as a way to improve my physical health, mental clarity, and creative drive. After experiencing the physical and mental benefits of an asana practice, I delved deeper into the study of yoga and meditation, as an art form, a science and way of life. The practice of yoga in its various names and forms has transformed the internal landscape of my mind into a simpler and more peaceful space. My continued yoga practice allows me to live in balance and harmony within myself and with my surrounding environment.
As a yoga teacher, I simply wish to share with others what is closest to my heart. The work of the teacher is not to teach, but to tune, to tune the student so that one may become the Divine instrument they are meant to be. My aim for each class is to guide students on an inward exploratory journey, utilizing the tools of breath, postures, mantras, and concentration. No matter where you are on your journey, I invite you to come experience the tranquility and beauty that resides within.
