How did you find your way to yoga? I was living in Colorado when a friend shared that yoga had improved her downhill skiing. I started attending classes at a local recreation center to stretch, strengthen and build endurance so I could spend more time on the ski mountain. It was a few years later, during an [...]

How did you find your way to yoga and then to teaching? When 17 years of competitive swimming came to an end, I needed something to replace my workouts (and my swimmer shoulders).  I had no yoga mat, no stretchy pants, and no clue what I was getting into. The first few times on a [...]

1. How did you find your way to yoga? After I graduated from college I moved to Taos, NM. Everyone in Taos was into an alternative lifestyle. It seemed only natural that I should discover yoga in Taos—a pretty heavy place energetically and spiritually. After my first class, I immediately bought Donna Farhi's book Yoga Mind, [...]

1. How did you find your way to yoga? I found my way to yoga by a combination of looking for a low stress type of exercise and discovering in the process a powerful support for meditation practice.   It was fortunate that my first teacher offered a daily class that included a 15 minute [...]

1. How did you find your way to yoga? I discovered yoga when I was 17 through a friend in the tradition of Bhakti Yoga.  I learned the philosophical teachings through an Indian guru, practiced Bhajans, meditation, self-study, and asana (or the poses) were a small part of the practice for me.  In many ways, [...]

I grew up as a swimmer, so I have been working with my breath for a long time.  After college, I volunteered in Costa Rica for a year and taught English.  I started meditating while living abroad.  I remember sitting mountainside counting my breaths. It was gorgeous.  [...]
