Asato mā sadgamaya | From ignorance, lead me to truth
800hr Certified Jivamukti Teacher
200hr Ashtanga-Vinyasa Flow
Like many others, I first started practicing yoga asana for the its physical benefits.
I stumbled into the method of Jivamukti Yoga by chance. I arrived at my studio too late to join my usual class. That was my first experience of the yoga practices which exist outside of asana. The Jivamukti practice opened a deeper level of awareness of body, mind and spirit.
I stumbled into the method of Ashtanga by chance. Curiosity awakened by the practice of Jivamukti, I decided to go on a yoga retreat. I choose my destination based on a recommendation. That recommendation led me to India. That recommendation is how I came to my daily practice of Ashtanga, the practice that revealed to me the patterns and limitations of the mind.
I stumbled into the practice of teaching by chance. I did not have any great aspirations to be a yoga teacher. But I did have a desire to deepen my practice. I decided to do a 200hr training. When I completed my training I realised I was only at the beginning of my yoga journey.
I stumbled into the path of yoga and finally realised I had never stumbled at all.
I have so much gratitude to all of my teachers who have played a part in helping me to uncover this spiritual pursuit. I teach to pay it forward.
