“Today I consider my self a modern yogi. I choose to train outside to stay connected with the earth. Running, hiking, dancing and long walks in the woods. Sometimes I will doing an intense full practice of ashtanga, I have a strong meditation practice and practice pranayama and yin yoga regularly. The desire to stay connected to the earth and be in nature allows me to stay connected to my individual creativity. I remember taking my ﬁrst yoga class and the energy that it gave me by doing something new. It was an amazing experience. Taking my practice outside gives me that same feeling like my ﬁrst yoga class did and my creativity exploded. I continue to study masters around the world and I love sharing that knowledge. It is my life’s journey. Teaching others that the greatest teacher is the one inside of us and the path to get there isn’t bound to only in a yoga studio. It’s on the waters of the Caribbean, in the mountains of Peru, in the woods near by and right there within you.”
