To me, yoga is about life – your life – its not about escape, its about finding a way to stay, to be in the moment, to live in the moment, to accept and not to run, not to flee, and not to push away.
It’s about going beyond the surface, diving deep into the darkest parts of yourself and daring to ”go there” and see what you find. It’s about the day you know that something is missing in your world and stop constantly searching for the answer from your surroundings, and from the people around you. Simply daring to close your eyes, watch the breath, and begin the search from within. It’s magical, at first unbelievable, but it’s real.
I dedicate the rest of my life to continue that search, that journey within that gives me strength, stability and greater wisdom to be in a position to find the way to encourage others to do the same. The more I grow, the better I can serve myself, those around me and those whom I have not yet met, better understand and fully connect to nature, to animals, and make the first steps to begin to acknowledge that we are all the same, just in different forms and stages of development. The experience of Karma, Dharma and Sat Chit Ananda.
But, more importantly – for me, yoga should be simple, real, tangible, and accessible to everybody, not asking for change but instigating change, leading to the true happiness, freedom and contentment, union with ourselves and all we encounter, during our journey through life.
