Early in my yoga practice, a teacher told me that my inability to forward fold was a body habit. IÂ had thought it a fact.Â After some time, I began to suspect that behavior, thought, and emotionÂ might be habitual too.Â Meditative movement of the body has allowed me access into formerlyÂ closed-off (or perhaps non-existent) areas like re-invention, spontaneity, acceptance,Â responsiveness, and creation.Â If little else, at least I can see them.Â My practice and teaching incorporate flow, alignment, and breath — three elements that bringÂ new perspectives into view. As a teacher I wish to be a conduit, a hand to guide students downÂ their (not my) paths.Â The paths might prove unimaginable and new.Â I am grateful for the inspiration and example, physically and beyond, that I have experiencedÂ over the last twelve years from the teachers Sarah Willis, Paul Manza, and Nikki Villela. I amÂ also certified in pre-natal yoga, a structure that has provided me, a non-pregnant yogaÂ practitioner, with greater allowance of self-respect, fluidity, expansion, and trust.
