I studied and then practiced architecture for nearly thirty years. There is discipline, attention to detail and an awareness necessary to create functioning, aesthetically satisfying spaces for people to live and work in. I love the world of design and I have enjoyed the privilege of working with many fascinating people but stress was starting to trump joy and I needed to make a change. I had this recurring dream that I was sitting on a hill under a tree looking out over a beautiful valley but I could not sit still. I longed for the stillness but I could not inhabit it. In 2006 I decided to quit my job and reconnect with myself. As always when you make space you allow new things to enter your life. It was then that I took my first yoga class. Coming to my yoga mat I experienced both a sense of play and a sense of stillness. I felt empowered and graceful. I loved the lessons on practicing non-judgment, moving beyond fear and opening my heart. Yoga re-connected me to my essential self and it has revealed a path of learning and teaching and love.
