My Mission

 is very simple:

"Take the practice serious,

but don't take yourself so serious

while you practice."

I think 'practice' is ANY activity that you use

regularly to work on yourself & your own well being -

physically & mentally.

Finding the right practice

that works for YOU and bring you JOY

is so darn important, but also have the fun.

 

And a final word:

don't get 'too stuck' in ideas of

what it all should be or should look like:

Dolly Parton taught me as much about life as Ram Dass did.

Find what rings true to YOU,

doesn't matter the source.

My yoga journey & studies are far from over,

but I would like to express my gratitude to my various teachers (and their teachers)

on this trip so far!

And to every student I ever had in my class...

thank you for teaching me too!
