I began studying yoga 20 years ago but for much of that time, because I was seeking approval and validation from other people, I practiced from my ego. I would literally contort myself trying to impress my teachers and embarrassingly enough, compete with other students.
It wasn't until a few years ago when my life fall apart that I had to look at myself with real honesty and begin the work of learning to love and accept myself. This path led me to make yoga and meditation more consistent and spiritual practices and to complete training to become a teacher.
I still struggle with anxiety, low self-worth, and perfectionism but I remember to have compassion for myself and return again and again to what has brought me so much inner peace, joy, and contentment. I'm grateful for the opportunity to share those teachings with you.
