INSPIRATIONS My quote to live by states, “If you want to lift yourself, lift up someone else.” Whether it’s through my yoga practice, volunteering at an orphanage or being there for a close friend, the symbiosis that comes with helping another evolve evolves me. WHY I PRACTICE When I step onto the mat, all facades and troubles dissolve, giving way to the spirit warrior within. The mat, my practice, allows a grounding vessel from which to evolve to new destinations, merging my inner practice with the tangible world. The idea and act of making a difference in the life of another makes a difference in mine. For me, yoga is my church. WHY I TEACH I teach to inspire. I teach to help. Integrating a ballet background into my teaching style, the infusion of dance into asanas rhythmically sequences my classes to allow students a more graceful, centered evolution of their practice.
