Every time I prepare to teach a workshop I ask myself why I teach yoga, why I do yoga and how does it make a difference in my life. What comes up again and again is how I find my self-empowerment through my choices to align with my heart. The Gita states that we are better to fail at who we are then become someone else which to me means to be who we are and through this we can find our power knowing that we are being true to ourselves and make better choices from this place.

Even when I cannot find the access point of a pose I know with my breath and intention there is a shift which shows me it’s possible even if not on this day. Force does not lead us to a place where we are able to connect deeply to ourselves where power is what we hold deep within ourself which can influence and inspire others. When we soften, align and take action to do the best we can there comes a feeling of accomplishment even if we don’t get the textbook pose. See how you can empower yourself by taking care of yourself and make choices that support what you believe in on and off your mat
