I was somewhat forced into a yoga class when I was teaching dance abroad several years ago. At the beginning of the class, the teacher instructed us to lay down on our backs or in child’s pose if rest was needed, and I laid on my back most of the 2nd half of class, getting up every once in a while to attempt a few poses. (I thought being a dancer; I was going to rock it!)
After returning 3 days in a row, I felt a change happening. Clarity, strength, and lightness in consciousness started to appear; the heaviness of my negative thoughts started to subside. When I got back to New York city, I had a strong curiosity and started seeking out yoga classes. At first, I was noticing the physical change in my body and thought yoga was about performing poses on a mat for exercise. As I dug deeper and my inner world started to expand, I realized there was so much more than poses that made up the practice, which led me to my teacher training at Yogamaya New York.
Yoga has helped reconnect me to my inner child. That inner child that knows this world is full of magic. I know I am meant to share the gift of yoga, to shift others the way I had been shifted. I hope to help people dive deeper within themselves, past their thoughts, to see the vast potential that is inside each of us.
Do you have a yoga teacher that inspires you? Reach out and let us know. We would love to send some love to instructors all over the world.
