The ecstasy I discover through the discipline of Yoga practice is unparalleled. The joy of seeing mySelf more clearly is constantly rife with newness, and yet, I recognize I have always known this light deep in the caverns of my bones. I have always been this radiant. The Yoga simply doesn’t let me forget it.
This is why I practice. In a world where we are constantly bombarded with material anxieties, and subsequently, their absurd remedies, Yoga is both a shield to protect from the insanity and a doorway leading to a buried reality. As long as we accept that we are human, we will encounter stuff that we tend to avoid: fear, insecurity, anxiety, doubt, loss, grief, rage, and pain. No one is exempt. Graciously, Yoga offers a reliable rock that we can sit on quietly. Here, we can listen to ourselves breathe freely and deeply. Yoga is a stand-in for the inner voice that has always known what to do and how to be.
During this retreat, my wish is to offer practical tools so that you can take them home with you and use them whenever you are feeling lost or out of balance. In turning our attention inward, may we see each other and be inspired to find our own way home!
