Yoga is for everyone.
Yoga isn’t for the flexible.
Or the calm.
Or those in the right clothes.
Yoga is for people. People who do dishes.
Come and practice with me. Come to my teaching space, East Street Yoga Center, have a private class with me, or come for a special workshop. Sharing what I’ve been learning for more than thirty five years is one of the greatest joys of my life.
I tell my students, if you are breathing, you can practice yoga. I’ve been honored to teach some who are paralyzed from the waist down and those in the dementia wing of a nursing home. It’s also been my privilege to teach varsity athletes, school-aged children, babies, mothers, men, young adults, seniors and ordinary people who do not feel they “can do yoga.”
I teach yoga because it has changed my life, enriched my life and given me the single greatest tool I’ve ever been given for living.
That’s because yoga is a practice for the WHOLE person. It serves the needs of the body, the needs of the heart, the needs of the mind and the needs of the soul. And it does it all at the same time! It’s the perfect practice for people who want to multi-task! 😉 You get exercise, worship, therapy, inspiration, meditation, relaxation and transformation in one class. That’s a well spent $15.
If yoga doesn’t help us to live the lives we are living better, it’s not worth the organic cotton yoga pants we wear to it.
Yoga IS for laundry. It’s for domestic disputes. It’s for terrible days at work. It’s for heartbreak. It’s for joy.
It’s for a healthier experience of being alive: body, heart, mind and soul. No part left out.
