Movement is natural and simple and essential to life.
Yoga practice is a way to make this natural movement mindful. To become aware of ourselves, to awaken to who we are, to deepen our knowledge of ourselves through movement and stillness.
When we pay attention to our bodies, the breath moving through us and our relationship to our immediate environment, discoveries happen without effort. When we try to make our bodies fit a regime that is enforced upon us, there is less space for such discovery to arise and our movement can become effortful and less spontaneous.
I want to always stay curious, allowing intuition to arise, ever listening, and watchful so that I can be present to the needs of the moment. This attitude permeates my practice and shapes what I share with you.
Yoga has been my ‘thread’ for the last 25 years. It is said to be the journey ‘from the head to the heart’ and gives us a set of tools for developing relationships first with ourselves and then with those around us. Once we have opened our hearts, it remains difficult to foster notions of separation. As the transformative qualities of Yoga continue to connect me to my authentic nature, this naturally leads me to a deepening commitment to the care of the earth.
