I am a seasoned Ashtanga yoga practitioner and I have been practicing daily for more than a decade. I have made many pilgrimages to India and honored the Ashtanga Yoga parampara. Although much has changed along the way, to me the clarity of yoga always remains the same.
I have completed the fourth series of the Ashtanga System, which is something I never anticipated when I started yoga. My background is neither athletic nor spiritual. I sought out yoga simply to avoid knee surgery. However, it was not the physical practice that made me stick to it.
With time, my ability to concentrate has increased in such a way that I became aware of the power my mind had over me. I realized the illusion of needless thinking and drama and discovered simplicity and fearlessness. This enables me to exist differently now. Better.
Yoga is a lifelong research project and we have yet to find out what the mind and body are capable of when used to their full capacity.
Human beings are naturally happy, fearless and free.
For a long time has the illusion of our thoughts suppressed our free spirit.
Yoga is the path back to our roots .
