Thank you, @naatlanta, for including me with such esteemed company as one of Atlanta’s four yoga luminaries. Without hesitation, I completely agree that Gina Minyard, Octavia Raheem and Jessica Murphy have all positively elevated yoga in Atlanta with great teaching, community development and rich practice opportunities. I’m honored to share this recognition with such inspiring and creative women. This month, it is now 30 years since I took my first yoga class in 1989 with my first yoga teacher, Lorna Brown. Above all else, she taught me that any and all yoga asana sequences aim to strengthen, open and steel our bodies so we can better experience a dynamic meditation to uncover the presence and stillness that is ALWAYS inside, underneath the clutter of mind chatter. My first years of practice, and the subsequent hundreds of hours studying Swami Kripalu’s Tantric Hatha Yoga with Yoganand reinforced for me that yoga’s benefits are embedded in breathing and how breathing evolves our states of mind and body. This approach to practice has supported me personally through my own ebbs and flows of asana practice and physical ability as my body has aged living with chronic and transient limitations from injuries. Thirty years later, yoga continues to fascinate and empower me, and keeps me finding new possibilities and insights. In 2001 when I started teaching weekly classes full-time here in Atlanta, I decided that I wanted all my classes to be Yoga for EveryBody. No matter who walks in the room, no matter what they can and can’t do with their body, my primary teaching goal continues to be helping people learn to breathe better and to use the power of their breath as fuel for feeling and savoring all of their sensations. Over this 18 year teaching career, I feel fortunate to have been part of Atlanta’s expanding yoga community, and I have tremendous gratitude to all the students and teachers who have shown up while I continue my studies and integration. My real teachers are now the students who show up in my classes and trainings; each person inspires, challenges and invites me to look deeper in myself to be a better teacher for them in that moment. Thank you! ♥️
When living a life Fully Alive, sometimes you just need to wear the party decorations! Thank you for being on this journey with me for my first 50 years. #50rocks #bestisyettocome♥️
