YOGA IS NOT ABOUT TOUCHING YOUR TOES. IT IS ABOUT WHAT YOU LEARN ON THE WAY DOWN.
What you need from yoga is unique to you.
It will vary greatly each and every day. Whether it is a physical practice to bring movement, suppleness and strength to your body, or a quiet reflection inward to bring stillness and solace to your mind.
Yoga Asana is the physical practice of yoga and this is where most people begin their yoga journey, including myself.
My Yoga Asana classes and one-to-ones are dynamic and challenging, yet reflective and nurturing.
My TEACHING INTENTION IS to empower. STRENGTHEN. RECONNECT.
One of my inspirations, Donna Farhi, says...
“The emphasis on asana is specific to the age in which we live in, for we live in a time of extreme dissociation from bodily experience… This limb of yoga practice reattaches us to our body. In reattaching ourselves to our body we reattach ourselves to the responsibility of living a life guided by the undeniable wisdom of our body.”
For me... yoga is about reconnecting to our body and listening carefully to the messages it gives us.
I believe that if you can maintain your breath, focus and connection to our body during a challenging yoga pose, then you will be far more likely to cope with the challenges in every day life. And let's face it - real life has its challenges.
