I left my first yoga class, in 2000, thinking "This is all that I need."
The sky looked brighter. The urge to fill something in myself that felt like a void was no longer there. I felt peaceFUL.
Since that first yoga class in high school, the practice has been a constant in my life. In grad school, I joke I got my Masters in Recovery, in which yoga played a vital role.
The practice reminds me to breathe and be ambition-less. With a clear drishti and direction but no attachment to the outcome. It's a liberating existence.
The path of yoga has led me to many exquisite vistas not least of which was meeting my yoga partners, Liz and Henry, and opening a yoga studio for our community in Los Angeles, Hollywood Power Yoga.
In yoga we get to experience ourSelf and practice acceptance. We explore the inner workings of our body and mind so we can be guided to our life's purpose.
I've been lucky to have learned from great instructors like Larry Schultz and Schuyler Grant and to share yoga as an instructor, with so many beautiful souls who remind me when I forget, this practice is transformational.
I've come to expect the unexpected.
