What I love most about teaching yoga is the way in which it allows me to support others in discovering what it means to be human. What I mean is that, so much of our life is spent living in our head – reflecting on the past or anticipating the future. What it means to be human is to actually live and experience life as it is happening. From my own experiences, this is a peaceful place to be and I want to help others find it.
(2) What are you looking forward to sharing during the TT Intensive?
What I am most looking forward to sharing is how the breathing practicing are the fundamental tool in transitioning the practitioner from the body-based practices into working with the mind. My plan is to present pranayama as detailed in the Yoga Sutras and a few other classical texts. I have spent thousands of hours immersed in yoga philosophy and hope to give very educated, accessible and practical information.
(3) What about your own TT experience surprised you?
What I was most surprised by was how comfortable I felt teaching in front of a room full of strangers. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I was nervous at first, but those nerves dissolved so quickly and the high that remained was unforgettable. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine this would be my future.
