Finding Sanctuary in Tough Times

Wow has life ever been challenging lately!

That’s not to say there hasn’t been fun and beauty and love, because there has. Lots of it. But somehow there is also so much pressure and difficulty and confusion and tragedy and injustice that it can be rather discouraging.

What I’m trying to say is that, if you’re going through tough times right now, you’re not alone.

Yoga gives you a way to create inner sanctuary–a safe haven that cradles you and gives you strength when you need it most.

When you get on your mat and move and breathe, it clears out stuck energy and offers you a different perspective. It reminds you that nothing is permanent and that “This too shall pass.”

I’ll be honest and say that sometimes I don’t know how I can show up and teach yoga when I’m dealing with my own stuff. And yet, every time I start class I am able to get out of my own way and let source flow through. It’s amazing, and I’m grateful to do this work and offer what I can to you.

The wisdom that I bring to class is what I’m working with in my own life. And it’s astounding how frequently I’m told by students that it’s exactly what they needed that day.

This is our practice: riding the waves of life with as much kindness and gentleness and skill and strength as possible; supporting each other directly and also by creating an inner sanctuary that radiates peace; connecting to our highest selves…

Because the work you do on yourself directly affects the world around you.

It’s very helpful to do this in community, so thank you for contributing by coming to class and/or showing up to be present with those around you. We really need each other right now–not to be anything dictated or expected, but just to be who we are in each moment, real and raw and with respect.
