About The Teacher
I was influenced early in life by the practice of yoga, my first classes
were after school at 11 years old. In my adolescence and teen years I
became very fascinated by different tools for self discovery and
expansion of thought. This is what most certainly led me to pursue
meditation and inspired interest in Indian philosophy.
As a teeanger I found the practice of asana to be a great compliment to
my other physical activities, and meditation a tool for calming and
focusing my busy mind.
At 19 I took my first trip to India to study more deeply and intensely
the practice and philosophy of yoga. That first trip took me to a number
of Ashrams in Southern India. I developed a keen desire to know more
about the history, language and culture surrounding yoga. This
fascination led me to complete my studies in Asian religion and South
Asia and to make several subsequent trips to India.
Over the years I have been blessed to have the opportunity to practice
with many wonderful teachers in the Ashtanga, Iyengar traditions and
various movement practices. My personal practice is based in the
Ashtanga tradition but I am strongly influenced by the Iyengar method,
therapeutic practice and movement.
In my teaching I draw upon many influences but really encourage a
practice unique to the individual. I truly believe that practice itself,
of all the limbs, is the true teacher and I hope to inspire and nurture
my students to cultivate their own sadhana.Source: samasati.secure.retreat.guru
