When life hits you with a pitch, there’s more wisdom in those cheers from the stands than I first realized: walk it off, or shake it off.
One of the greatest benefits I have found in practicing yoga is the way it increases bodily awareness. I teach classes for a variety of age-groups, and have found that from college students to seniors, our technology-dependent world and quick-fix mentality has left us quite out of touch with our bodies.
When I think about yoga and how it has affected my life – the most obvious answer focuses on my teaching. Being a yoga instructor and being involved in yoga teacher training has certainly taken me deeper into my own personal understanding of yoga. But that’s really just about where I am in my yoga journey right now. There's a lot more to my story that has nothing to do about me teaching yoga – but about what yoga taught me.
