I personally believe that if everyone on this planet would practice yoga for only one hour per week, we would see a shift in consciousness. It is indeed a small start but one that would have great impact for human kind.
As a former once per week practitioner, I witnessed my evolution of becoming gentler and softer from only one hour of yoga per week. Transitioning from a once per week yogi to a daily practitioner, I have personally seen a shift in my own consciousness towards a more "awakened" state. My practice has helped me in cultivating grace, compassion, and love for self and others.
Yoga is a life long study of self. I am both a student and a teacher of yoga, always learning and ever evolving. My hope is to be of service to others by sharing my love of yoga with the world.
Blessings and Jai Bhagwan!
My intention is to help students cultivate a mindful practice with attention to breath, body, and spirit, with focus on proper alignment for their individual body while remaining safe and pain free.
I believe that yoga should be accessible to everyone. As I continue to learn as both a student and teacher, I can see where teaching to the average is no longer feasible due to human variation ranging from differences in anatomical structure, body shape, injury, limited range of motion, and much more. Some asanas (poses) may not be for everyone. The aesthetics of a pose should not be the primary focus of practice but rather the emphasis should be placed on feeling into the body through the breath with proper alignment and safety, resulting in a pain free practice. What may feel good for one student, may cause pain in another. Simple modifications allow every student the opportunity to explore their body and practice individually.
