WHAT I'M ABOUT

Thank you for taking time to check out what I've got going on here at Your Road Yoga, and hopefully find something useful while you're here. It is important to me to do my best and invite you to my experience and be open to yours.

 

          In this genuine wish for connection I still find myself wanting to sell you something like: constant peace, ease, perfect health and all the things that are damn near impossible to attain in this life.  That all being said...I have found that the practice of yoga, has brought relief to some of my overall suffering. I have witnessed myself develop skills that I always thought were out of reach for me, from flexibility, to finding calm when anxiety takes hold. And I do correlate my success to a daily yoga routine. A daily yoga routine only developed for me after finding myself in recovery from drugs and alcohol, regular meditation, and therapy for depression and suicidal ideation, and overall taking a little more interest in my wellbeing on a regular basis. I share all of this simply for the sake of connecting. These are experiences that are a part of my journey, and maybe a part of yours, and perhaps draws a bridge or at least tells you a little about myself, take from it what you will.

I've found on my own road that I've had reservations about becoming a yoga instructor simply because of the sometimes off putting market of what yoga is supposed to be. Yoga is a practice, and usually induces change; however, it is not about extreme flexibility or perfect form. It is an ancient grounding technique to help connect the body to the mind, and vice versa, ultimately bringing one to the present moment, where life is actually happening. 

 

Yoga is for you, if you want it. Anyway, what I want you to know is that I'm glad you're here.
