Doing yoga has been a transformative experience for me. It has allowed me to turn inward and connect with who I truly am. In my practice I have found compassion, depth and intuition, both on and off the mat. I completed an amazing 200 hour yoga teacher training program at Samadhi in June 2010. I am pursuing a 500 hour certification, studying traditional Kripalu practices. I am profoundly grateful to the teachers who have nurtured my love of yoga, and am humbled by the love and support of my fellow yogis. I have worked as a Social Worker since I received my master’s degree in 1991-working with many traumatized people-and yoga has helped me to heal from all that I have been exposed to. I am moved by the blessing of sharing the sacred practice of yoga with fellow students. I applaud all of you yogis, whether this is your first class or your thousandth, for giving yourself the gift of yoga. Come as you are….Namaste.
