it honestly has changed my life.
the philosophy, the community, the studios, the practice, the kirtans, the books, the retreats, the stillness.
it has all drastically turned me inside out and upside down.
this practice gave me the gift of connection which allowed me to deepen my experience here on this earth.
before yoga, I was lost. always searching for something. inside I was a whirlwind of emotion and instability to all those around me.
now when I feel it coming.. I sit. i read. i call a soul sister and walk. I write. I practice asana. I get quiet and it passes.
it’s not always pretty and its most certainly NOT easy. To be in relationship- to feel hurt or pain. To “mess” up. to love so much.
“you must cultivate your practice over an extended period of time”
This is why more and more, each day- I’m sharing this gift with the world.
The more I teach .. and CONNECT the more energy I have- the better I feel. the more I can give. the more I heal.
I was always a bit wild. I was too intense, too passionate, too emotional. ” You do too much . You care too much . You cry too much.” they told me.
But, I believe this is all part of my gift to the world. To show you that you can love and throw yourself into the fire of truth. Do not hide from your part, from your history, from your dark side.. and I think you come out vibrantly alive & stronger.
We always have a chance to change, to transform, to go deeper, to LOVE more .
I’m grateful for my creativity, for my playful side, for my NEW crazy CURLY hair??!!??
but most of all- every damn day I am grateful for the yoga. the simple stretches and teachings that gave me a chance.
that opened me up to live this life and that kept me alive.
“May all beings, everywhere, be happy and free.
And may the thoughts and actions of my own life contribute, in some way, to that happiness and to that freedom for all.”
