My Experience w/ the Spiritual Journey
I owned and directed the Shama-Bhakti Yoga Centre for 5 years.
I’ve been teaching yoga for at least 13. (mostly Ashtanga and stylized Vinyasa)
I’ve been practicing for over 30.
I’ve been teaching mediation for 7 years and practicing…all my life.
I’ve trained in Thai Yoga Massage.
I am a Transpersonal Therapist.
This is the breadth of my Yoga experience. I have developed my life of yoga to include all the above and I teach and practice accordingly.
As a student and teacher of yoga for a few decades now, I have experienced many things. I have watched my students grow and change. I’ve watched them come and go.
I have changed myself, in leaps and bounds with the guidance of my teacher(s) and my own practice of Yoga which includes: asana, meditation, journey of the heart process, pranayama, etc., and of course, I have grown as a teacher because of my students.
I have watched yoga practices change in the west and have commented on how it has been appropriated and reshaped into something that is accessible to the general public (those who do not seek spiritual work). Although to some, this may be the order of the day, I don’t feel that the practice of yoga especially the asana practice (Hatha) is the be-all-end-all. And I teach accordingly. (I will write about this and other things in my blog soon.)
It is my intention to share with you my ongoing commitment to my spiritual practice; share some of the insight I have gained through the years.
Please feel free to share your thoughts and ask any question about meditation, asana, the heart process, breathing, psychology, etc.
If you directly comment to anyone plz be mindful. If you need to vent or complain do so with grace. If you want to let anyone know how much you appreciate them say it with gusto.:-))
Oh and one more thing…if you do use any of the content you find here in my pages including images and text graphics or otherwise, PLZ be mindful and give credit where credit is due! Thx…
