An introduction to transcendental meditation in Grade 7 (!), a book that came into my life called "the finding of the third eye" by Vera Stanley Alder and an inspired Phys Ed teacher, who offered Yoga for a semester in grade eleven all conspired to help develop a practice which became part of a private ritual. But it is a constant journey. It combines an insatiable quest for information on the Dao, sacred geometry, life experiences of being a mother, of injuries born of the compression that life brings with it, of the constant feedback of a community of yogis I have grown to love and respect deeply.
In my classes, there's usually humour, creative sequencing and typically a few drops of sweat. My students are invited to use the design of the pose as an archetype, but to keep it accessible. Adapting to bodies and abilities, I try to guide with the kind of inspiration that is current, applicable and cracks a smile. Until you to feel, and breath and find freedom. In body, mind and spirit.
