Last August I completed my yoga teacher training. What is interesting about it is that my learning went over and beyond the asanas, or yoga postures. The seeds of the yogic philosophy infiltrated every part of me. I came out of this program a different person than when I first went into it. The most profound learning I embodied is the concept of duality and the understanding of the oneness of all beings - that we are all connected. Duality represents the opposites of all that we experience such as joy and sorrow, anger and happiness, love and hate. It is like light and darkness, one cannot exist without the other. I have been grappling with this idea for a long time. The experiences I had over the past months brought about a deepening of my understanding of self.
Braving the process allowed me to open up to new and brighter things. At the same time, it pushed me to the edges so I can lean into my deeper calling. As I move along this path, I am always reminded that I am supported. I feel this sense of knowing through various experiences and through people I meet along the way. Every relationship that came into my life in the past year has enriched my life in such a meaningful way... be it the casual acquaintances at work, or the yoga teachers that inspire me, or the few ladies that I get the honour of sharing my innermost self with... they all bring magic to my life.
I am a lover of life, beauty, and vitality. I believe that we are creators of our own reality. It is important that our thoughts, feelings, speech, and actions reflect our true, essential nature. Through stillness, we can find our true selves. My desire is to share the journey into myself in the hopes of creating a space that connects with others who find themselves on the same path. I hope that you will find inspiration in this place.
