My first experience with yoga was way back in 1986, at my undergrad college, at a small, student center class. From that experience on, I knew that I had found a form of expression that suited me deeply. However, it was a long search to find the right teacher, to truly show me how powerful a devoted practice can be.
The Iyengar tradition has been a perfect path for me, in that it approaches yoga not as a thing that you do, but as a way of practicing life. Time on the mat is a time of play, meditation, exercise, research, and devotion. Hence, I view my mat as a playground, a laboratory, and a temple, all at the same time. I am so grateful for this gift of yoga, and the wonderful teachers who have devoted their lives to sharing it with all.
