As I often remind my students, “When you practice yoga once a week it will change your mind. When you practice yoga twice a week it will change your body. When you practice every day it will change your life.” And so it did mine. The ancient science of yoga is transformative – life altering. Yoga practice went far beyond strengthening my body and calming my mind. Yoga awakened all of my senses. It challenged my perceptions and became a tool to cultivate deep awareness, compassion and connection with the world around me. Yoga has taught me that each breath is a new opportunity to begin again - to replace unhealthy habits with nourishing ones, and to listen to the true voice of my heart - and to practice that, on and off my mat.
For over two decades I have been a "caregiver" for River Yoga. It has been, and continues to be the greatest privilege to share the empowering teachings of yoga with our amazing community. I am humbled and inspired every day by each one of our students' unique practices!
