What is my "why"? What is it that I am purposed to do as a Yogini and as a Yoga Teacher? This has been weighing on my mind for some time now and I believe that the answer has finally arrived. My "why" is to promote elevation to and remembrance of the Spirit. To continue my own evolution, to teach my students how to tap into the deeper work of yoga. To create peace within my family and among my friends. To create peace throughout my community, my country, the world. To raise the vibration, the frequency.
I want to remind people that we all have God in us. If you believe the creation story of the Bible, then you know that God breathed into Adam. We are decended from Adam so the breath of God is also within us. It is that Divine spark within that compels us to move this world toward peace and elevation towards the Spirit. Not only are we indwelled by the Divine, but we are also made of stars! Yes, everything in the physical world is made up of the same stuff and everything and everyone is One. When we are armed with this knowledge, how can we continue to harm one another, and harm our planet?
In yoga, we use our body as a means to create peace throughout our organism. Asana (pose) enables us to release tension from our physical body. Pranayama (control of the breath) helps us to calm the mind and meditation takes place after these in order for us to have vertical conversations with Spirit. As we grow into the practice, compassion grows within us. When we act on our compassion, we move into a space of Love and Love is God!
