yoga! I truly do. I love it for who it has helped me to
become and for how I see others transformed. For a long time,
I dabbled in yoga. I fit it in where I could, given a super
busy schedule as a software development consultant.
In 2004, after 14+ years of being a desk/airport-jockey software
programmer/consultant, I needed a major change. I was making money, but losing sanity.
2004 was also the year that, after much encouragement from the
wise-beyond-years man in my life, we got our first ever
dog, Seabiscuit. My life was filled with love, but somehow still
empty. I felt called to yoga, not to fill this emptiness, but with
the simple sense of being drawn to my mat time and time again.
Each time, I practiced, I felt better than when I started - no exceptions.
I continue to find this remarkable. No other activity quite compares.
These experiences somehow led me to walk away from my
job, embrace the unknown and enroll in yoga teacher training.
These past 5+ years of teaching have been challenging, uplifting and one
of the best decisions I have ever made.
Staying active in body, mind and spirit is my path to health and
youthfulness. Yoga is the only activity I have found to simultaneously
engage and challenge all three of these areas.
In my ashtanga-based vinyasa yoga teaching, I focus on helping students find and
respect their growth edge and move safely beyond it. At the same time, reminding us all to not to take our yoga practice
or life too seriously. Hearing someone chuckle or seeing someone
smile in my class is one of my great joys of teaching.
