Yoga, E-RYT500 & IKYTA Certified
I have been a yoga student, practitioner, and teacher since 1998. My first extensive teacher training was in Ashtanga, followed by Hatha Yoga, Yin Yoga, and Kundalini Yoga.
Many Yoga Schools and Ashrams hold great value, and yet, they are the finger pointing to the moon, not the moon. A great teacher leads you to beyond what they know, and freely lets you go. There is no substitute for the inner Guru - not through religion, Yoga style, or outer Guru. If someone leads you against your own conscience, they are leading you away from your Soul.
A true Guru does not seek to gather a following, a true Guru leads you to your Inner Guru. Truth is Inclusive, and does not let rules and regulations trump the Heart and Essence of what Is. May we have compassion for ourselves and for All that Is. For it is in being led away from the Self that we also find the Self.
Those who have greatly influenced me on the path are much greater than I can list below, but here are a few:
Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa, Devinder Kaur, Krista Novakowski, Nita Rubio, Brenda Jack, Sarah Powers, Angela Farmer & Victor van Kooten, Fateh/Julie Henderson, Guru Shabd, Guru Dev Singh, Guru Dharam Khalsa, Shiva Rea, Snatam Kaur, Tej.
