Yoga and meditation resuscitated me from a ‘seemingly hopeless state of mind, body and spirit,’ I suffered from the chronic disease of addiction, chemically dependent on drugs and alcohol. My family, friends and medical professionals made painstaking efforts to keep me alive, yet I couldn’t seem to breathe from the oxygen masks they offered. I did grasp on to yoga, almost as a memory of how to organically move and really breathe. I began remembering how to simply be and I was inspired to continue.
To share the gift of yoga and meditation is my passion. I simply wrap it up and present in a way that others are enticed to open. Once they feel a deep breath, create movement in a way their body was designed, connect within and with others, that to me is yoga. It lights me up to witness others feeling that spark inside. It is different for all of us, at different times and on different days. There is no guarantee of a sparkly experience each class, yet over time the murk begins to lift and we become clear enough to shine between each practice. Shine not only for ourselves, but for those around us. The light in me truly honors the light in you- Namaste.
