I was trained in the Gitananda tradition of Yoga. This is a very traditional approach to Yoga, seeing Yoga as a whole system for living with the aim of bringing mind and body into harmony so that we can achieve spiritual growth. It is rooted in the Eight Limbs of Patanjali, which offers guidance for how we live, how we interact with the world, and ourselves, how we care for the body, how we breathe, and how we use the mind.
While I focus mainly on teaching Pranayama, this is just one of the Eight Limbs. Therefore, my teaching also incorporates the Yamas and Niyamas (the morals and ethics of Yoga, and being human), Asana (postures, relaxation, and the release of tension from the body), and Praytahara, (learning to focus the mind). Through working with these five limbs, you can achieve harmony and balance in life. When we work together, we will incorporate all into our time together.
One of the main principles of Yoga is that of self awareness and responsibility. I can guide you along this path, but it is up to you to do the work. My own recovery truly began the day I realised that no matter who had hurt me in the past, my future was mine to create, and I had to start from where I was.
We cannot change the past. We cannot control the future. But you can look at where you are, learn from where you have been, and step along the path that can take you in the direction you want to go. I can help you along that path, and look forward to taking this journey with you.
