Like so many others, I came to yoga and meditation because I could not stand my life. Various events had led to each day being difficult and filled with anxiety and fear. After my first yoga class, I felt relaxed for the first time in several years and I understood that I had found a path that could lead me out of my suffering. After several years of yoga, I also found my way to meditation and Buddhist practice and for that I am truly grateful.
For me, yoga and meditation is about getting to know oneself, finding self-love and through that, compassion for others. It is to increase one's awareness of the body, emotions and thoughts. It is to take responsibility for one's actions and live a life that is based on love instead of fear. It is important for me to remember that we all practice, we practice being aware, being kind and being true. Yoga is one way to practice, meditation another, but all of life is practice and everything we encounter can be a path to awakening.
I wish to offer you the opportunity to experience your own inner world and your body's innate wisdom. I am more interested in the inner experience than what is "right" and "wrong" and I explore finding the balance between form and formlessness.
