Before yoga, I had felt somewhat disconnected from myself and lost in the world. Physical discomfort to mental agitations or worries were normal, everyday occurrences. I felt out of control of my life. Losing sight of who I truly was underneath all the emotions, thoughts, and pains in the body. However, through this practice, there is a power that reawakens within us, for it was always there and always will be. By learning to connect with our breath and bodies, to detach from the thoughts and come into the present that is the NOW- we are able to find peace & stillness. The lessons we learn on our mats such as patience, compassion, and acceptance, not only carry out into our lives, but also transform our lives. Through years of personal experience with the practice and immense inner growth- I have come to be a teacher. Sharing this universal knowledge and practice with others is not only a joy but an honor. Together we can learn to break down our walls, let go of any self-limiting beliefs/thought patterns/habits- and in turn remember everything that we truly are.
