My main approach during classes is gentleness – an open invitation for you to be with whatever arises. I encourage my students to be truthful about the ‘ease and effort’, not about pushing through pain, but of finding that space with respect and curiosity in our beings. Adaptations are offered during class so that students of all levels can further their experience of yoga and meditation. This allows us to work safely with our bodies, and for gradual progression as we strengthen our bodies and minds.
I often say the stretch isn’t just about the body, but rather, are we prepared to look within and stretch away from old patterns of thinking, that perhaps do not suit us anymore? Are we ready to tap into our infinite source of well-being and infinite peace? This is our goal: to become more peaceful, healthier and happier, through our continued efforts and by showing up on our mat, just the way we are.
