I took Charlie's Tuesday evening beginner friendly class online. What a wonderful class! Really good cues, great pace. And very nice sequence. Thank you!
Three decades ago Yoga entered my life, and it has been an intricate part ever since. Initially, my practice included meditation with a bit of asana to cope with a cancer diagnosis at the age of twenty. I began without the label of Yoga as I read books about a variety of mind-centering practices and the teachings of ancient masters. A thirst to live life to the fullest is fed by Yogic engagement pretty much every day, still. Early life experiences enticed me to also obtain a master's degree in Integrative Health Education, from the California Institute of Integral Studies, along with initial certification in Yoga while traveling in southern India. The traditional roots of Yoga intrigued me, so I am currently doing an additional 200-hour study of Sanskrit and mantra (a.k.a. nada Yoga). I am excited it will bring me back to India, this time to the north. Also, my commitment to the awareness of traditional Yoga is being fulfilled through a Yoga non-profit I founded three years ago, the Yoke (www.theYoke.Yoga). Whether sharing asana, nada, or other Yoga components from a mat, silk hammock (in the air), in a pool, or on top of a standup paddleboard (on the water) there is the opportunity for me to weave the ancient teachings with modern practices into any realm.
