For me, the inspiration and energy I have benefitted from in the practice of yoga has been transformative. Through my practice over years, I have gained insight into and have drawn the strength to slough off unwanted and unnecessary layers: unsatisfying careers, enervating work, situations of negative energy, destructive relationships (with people and things!).…and fried food and red wine (err…mostly: some Friday evenings excepted). Yeah, think my dharma and adharma still fight it out! But yoga most certainly is on my side in that struggle.
In the course of leading and instructing hatha yoga asana (Bikram and vinyasa flow) I have been and continue to be inspired by many students’ dedication and commitment to their yoga practice. I am enriched by observing the benefits – physically, physiologically emotionally and in subtle other ways – they have gained and been empowered by over time through a regularly maintained practice. I am always energised by the warmth, strength and kindness of fellow dedicated yogis and yoginis.
