“I found myself in child’s pose after a serious injury that severely limited my mobility. By some miracle shortly after my injury, I happened upon a yoga studio. For several months the only posture I was able to do was child’s pose. I would stay in the same corner, day after day, class after class, with my forehead to my mat, and I would envision myself doing the postures as the teacher called them; some days I didn’t listen and cried instead. Over time, I tried more poses, and as my body grew stronger, my inner resolve and sense of radical self love blossomed. The space yoga created for me to heal my physical body, my thought patterns, and connection with myself is something I remember every time I teach and practice yoga. I cherish the wisdom a yoga practice offers, and it is an honor for me to facilitate my yoga students through their personal processes.”
