The body is a marvelous conduit through which health and happiness can be realized. So many of us live with the understanding that the body is to be treated as a separate entity, an entity that often betrays us by gaining weight, becoming injured, or falling ill. Yoga kindly teaches us that there is no definition between body, mind, and self. When we move with intention, we can change thought patterns, learn new things about our selves, and feel more at home in our skin. Increasing our movement potential serves to increase our capacity for understanding our limits and our abilities, and teaches us to cultivate holistic intelligence.
Yoga is multi-layered practice that teaches body-awareness, steadiness of mind, and peace within the self. It is, at first glance, a fabulous practice that tones the body while expanding movement potential. With regular practice, it quickly becomes apparent that yoga affects emotional and psychological stability and serenity. As a yoga teacher, I am invested in exploring asana practice as a means of deepening one’s sense of wellbeing. It is my personal understanding that a practice of movement and reflection helps to shape a whole person whose body and mind are strong and clear. Using the physicality of asana as a means of tapping into reflection, I hope to offer my students a safe and explorative space to experience everything yoga has to offer.
