Assume a posture that balances effort with ease, strength with grace - this is an essential part of any yoga practice. A posture can be physical in the form of asana, or it can be an attitude or approach to life. Striving for balance versus perfection we find space to be unconditionally human.
Stretching and strengthening are a common draw to the practice of yoga and a perfect place to start. Releasing muscular tension and restriction can immediately bring a corresponding release of mental stress and anxiety. Add coordinated breath with movement and your nervous system calms, easing your state of being. You begin to develop body awareness as you gain fundamental strength and correct your posture. What you are really doing is beginning a profound journey inside your body, mind and spirit that will carry over into every aspect of your life.
The yoga I teach is meant to be versatile, evolving, safely experimental, fun and relaxing.
Most importantly I aim for you to leave with a deeper understanding of your body and a more integrated sense of self. Your approach to problems both physical and mental shift; as a result people's reactions to you shift. The hard lines between self and other blur and dissolve. Learn to speak your Truth and discover how joy, unconditional love and equanimity become your new foundation.
