Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves - slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future. Live the actual moment. Only this moment is life.
-Thich Nhat Hanh
I discovered yoga ten years ago as physical practice that fit neatly into my hectic travel and work schedule. One day, during class, the instructor read the quote above by Thich Nhat Hanh and I realized I had moved beyond the benefits of the physical practice into greater self-awareness about what in life is important to me. The connection to the moment I learned from yoga suddenly put everything into perspective, providing an answer to a question I had not realized I was asking. With this renewed sense of clarity, I soon decided to follow my passion and dedicate more of my time to my practice by leaving the corporate world to pursue teacher training at Moksha Yoga Center in Chicago (www.mokshayoga.com). There, under the guidance of Daren Friesen and the other generous teachers at Moksha, I found the opportunity to deepen my practice while learning how to share this amazing tradition with others. I am continually humbled by the awareness and self-discovery provided through my practice. I believe that what happens on the mat inspires each moment off of the mat and I strive to plant the seed for transformation with my teaching by incorporating traditional alignment principles, breath, intention, and meditation.
