Words to live by: “Get wildly enthusiastic about the little things, play with leaves, skip down the street, run against the wind…” -Leo Buscaglia
Why do I teach yoga? When asked in teacher training, “Why do you want to teach?” I had to pause. It just seemed like the thing I was supposed to be doing, but why? Yoga and movement brings me joy, invokes my curiosity and leads me to explore. I hope to impart that sense of joy seeking, wanderlust and exploration of both ourselves and the external world to my students. Mindfulness practices have taught me to be more considerate, compassionate, and kind and I hope that my students feel a little more filled with love after every class.
What’s my teaching style? Our yoga asana practice should feel good in our bodies today and for a long time to come. Therefore, I tend to focus on alignment with the freedom to do what feels right in your body at that moment. Whether teaching a vigorous Vinyasa class or a slow, mindful Yin or Restorative class, I try to invite curiosity of ones body and mind during every practice, sprinkled with a little humor so we remember not to take ourselves too seriously.
