Yes, it sounds over the top, I truly believe that everyone who seriously and sincerely studies yoga, its traditions, and its practice will find growth and guidance. I have been practicing yoga since the age of twenty-five, although for many years that practice was indeed in an on-again, off-again style. That changed at the age of fifty, when I decided to fulfill a "bucket list" dream by enrolling in yoga teacher training. I have since completed both a 200 hour beginning training and a 300 hour advanced training, both at the same Yoga Alliance affiliated school. In 2014, I joined Yoga Alliance; currently I am registered as an RYT-200 and working on the teaching hours needed to change that designation to an RYT-500.
As a practitioner, my focus is on achieving greater facility with both asana, pranayama, and meditation. I read and study yogic philosophy, and find that time spent with the sacred tomes of yoga is indeed time well spent. I am particularly interested in the application of traditional yoga philosophy on daily living in our modern world.
In my day job, I teach high school English. When I´m not at work or practicing yoga, I´m a wife, the ´mother´ of two ´bird children´ (or ´feathered kids´), and a passionate knitter. Namaste to my readers, and thank you for allowing me to share my love of yoga with you!
