I know that I am not my body but its where I live and its an incredible teacher; to be able to move daily in a healthy thriving body is a gift.
Being an athlete, a competitor and a “driver” has meant that I’ve typically operated at full speed, taking many of my interests to the extremes; living at a rapid tempo in all areas of my life - slowing down has been my life challenge.
Yoga has taught me presence and to celebrate daily rather than getting fixated on end results. The BIG thing for me, is that I move to get still, to quiet the mind and feel a spark that provides a creative presence; its working from the outside in; working the body to connect mind, body and soul.
What continues to be most impactful for me as a student and is the foundation for my yoga teachings is that when we participate with the intent of tuning into our bodies intelligence we learn how to connect to ourselves in a deeper way.
We begin to understand it has less to do with what the body can do and more about the happiness that unfolds in learning about ourselves - so let’s dive in, get messy, move, sweat, stretch, breathe and allow some fun hard work and play to teach us something more powerful and purposeful.
