Let me guide you to a more vibrant, meaningful and joyful life through the practice of Authentic Yoga.
This approach to yoga is simple: Yoga is being with what is
- Meet yourself right where you are
- Notice clearly what is happening
- Choose appropriate, intelligent and compassionate actions to create greater balance
- Notice the effects
- There will be distractions, just return to presence without strain, struggle or self-judgement
Authentic yoga enables us to contribute to the world through our mindful, attentive and wholehearted participation.
