Welcome! I'm back from an 18-month Sabbatical in California and India, a time I set aside to let go of things and acquire experiences. It's safe to say I'm not quite the same person I was when I left.
The cells making up my digestive system have replaced themselves 80 times. I've worn 20 different skin suits. My red blood cells have renewed themselves 3 times. My liver is almost all new. And even though I've taken great care of my mind, I've lost almost 4 million neurons in my cerebral cortex. But my hippocampus, which is responsible for creating memories, has benefited from many new connections.
But the cells that were formed on the inner lens of my eye when I was an embryo are still intact, and I still see the world benefitting ever so much from the wisdom of yoga.
I will slowly but surely be making my way back to teaching group classes, albeit with a more focused approach, starting in November. And I will be expanding my private offerings, as I believe more than ever that this is truly the most effective and efficient way to find your yoga.
Check back here for more updates soon, and as always, feel free to get in touch.
Welcome and Namaste...
I hope this can be a place where you get to know me a little bit, perhaps read some of my thoughts on Yoga, and hopefully be inspired to cultivate your own practice. I look forward to seeing you sometime, maybe on the mat or at a Kirtan, maybe on the streets of Victoria, or just skipping stones on the ocean at our doorstep.
To paraphrase Jon Kabat-Zinn, wherever I am, there I’ll be. Hope you’ll be there too…
