When embraced beyond the realm of simple fitness, yoga, is a way of life. I entered into this sacred practice for exercise, and for many years practiced for that reason. It was only when great emotional challenge came to me that I looked at all eight limbs of yoga to heal. By learning the eight limbs I examined the way I treat myself, others, the environment and all sentient beings. In my classes I offer a challenge to my students, not just by the physical asanas but to connect to the breath to remain present with all feelings that come their way. When we are able to process emotions and traumas when they come up, there is both emotional and physical recovery. Read the profile >>
