YOGA FOUND ME AND I FOUND MY WAY
I have been practicing Yoga since 1996 but didn't really commit to the practice until I took my first teacher training at Jaya Yoga Center in 2011. I have struggled for decades with chronic back and knee pain. Even with all the asana practice I put in, I would sometimes find my pain so debilitating it would keep me from exercising for weeks. In 2009, I found my way into one of Sarah Powers Yin Yoga Workshops at a New York City Yoga Journal Conference. It was there I recognized I had forgotten one important piece of yoga...."Practice what you love, but also practice what you hate."
The stillness practice that Yin brought forth changed everything for me. I am now studying with Sarah and Ty Powers through their virtual school called Insight Yoga Institute. It is here that I have found a depth of understanding of my body, my mind, my practice, through a Buddhist approach to living and being in the present moment.
FIND MY CLASSES
I owe my way into intelligent teaching to the beautiful souls, Ramit Kreitner and Carla Stangenberg, owners of Jaya Yoga Center, my hOMe. Find me here teaching and practicing, it is where I feel best in my body. Visit the Jaya website to find out about special Yin Yoga Workshops. www.jayayogacenter.com
