September was an epic life-altering month for me: I had the privilege of studying with Faeq Biria for eight days in the Rocky Mountains. I am still digesting his teachings into my body and as for my body, she came away metamorphosed into a completely different expression than I have ever seen. We will never be the same. Each of his words penetrated into my body and my cells reacted and learned from his teachings. All of his appreciation and acknowledgements went straight to his Guruji, BKS Iyengar. I am so grateful for my teacher, Carolyn Belko who encouraged me to continue on in Denver to further open my body through the asana practice offered by Faeq. I am praying to attend two weeks of his intensive in France, summer 2020.
As you may know or may not know, I am entering my second year of training to become a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher with Carolyn Belko, who I have dubbed the “generous genius.” With her abundance of knowledge from many years with Mr. BKS Iyengar and Faeq Biria, she shares her teaching with such precision, while keeping a keen eye on each student. I am blessed and honored to be with her. I want to share my second year and this process because I think it is important for those seeking yoga as students or teachers to know the amount of discipline and devotion needed to truly walk the path of yoga. All I can say about that is, at this time on earth, I am doing my very best I can. I will continue to do my very best.
I am getting more and more excited to start making my youtube videos! This took me sometime to think about HOW I wanted to present myself, the background, the scene all of the various aspects I have yet to even imagine. You see, I am a girl who is good at a few things: being a wife, an animal mom, a yoga student, a yoga teacher and sometimes a chef. I love to communicate with people who are right in front of me; don’t we all?! Isn’t this what gives us the material to have constructive and deep conversations? To ask and be asked questions and to be able to answer those questions with sincerity and clarity through eye contact and magnetic heart connection?
My master plan is to create videos just for YOU. Quite frequently after class I am approached with questions about various topics that pertain to our practice, and most of the time I don’t have the time to get to answer them all with as much zazz as I think you deserve! So for those of you who connect with me, who come to my classes with specific questions, or those of you to whom my teachings speak on a soul level, I am coming for you to be of service to you through my videos. I have found that if one person has a question, the answers are of benefit to all! Thank you for trusting me. Thank you for inspiring me each day.
