1. Why Yoga?
We practice yoga so that we might be healthy in body, calm in mind, useful in life and joyous enough to inspire others.
2. How do you come back to your inner peace?
I regularly need to fill my cup back up. Sometimes I do this through alone time and silence, I’ll go on a personal retreat or simply spend a day alone in nature. Sometimes, I get reenergized through social interaction and just teaching one of my regular weekly classes is enough to recharge my batteries. But most of all, I get to go to Bali every year to lead a retreat at Kumara and this tops me off for the year ahead. Simply setting foot in Bali reinvigorates my soul.
3. Your top wellness tip?
Even if it’s just for ten connected breaths. Stop each day and ask your body, mind and spirit how you are doing. This simple technique of observing how you feel will lead you to make wiser emotional, spiritual choices.
