There is always someone better at certain things than we are and always someone not as good at certain things as we are. If we remember that, we can be more at ease with who and where we are and enjoy challenge where we find it.
I've been practicing yoga for about 9 years(Teaching for 3), sometimes really intensively and for long periods, sometimes not at all for periods...I come with my body where it is, wear it comfortably and agree to challenge and enjoy it with you.
I like to keep the movement aspect of yoga simple and relatively slow for building strength, meditation in movement and steady expansion. Some days we need to shake things up and get in touch with our wild self, some days we need to reign ourselves in and listen more intently...always, we need to be with ourselves and navigate from within. My classes reflect this, drawing from my training in Tantra, Ishta, and Vinyasa yoga among other unusual teachings. The breath is key and music will move us too.
Meditations take us through whole body awareness, deep relaxation, expansion, visualization and gratitude, in that order. I also love introducing gentle Tantric breathing for building energy to fuel our deepest yearnings.
To me yoga is a coming to self, a yielding and enlivening and I most enjoy practicing outdoors for everything the elements offer in the direction of greater personal freedom.
