Flowing without any effort on the current of the infinite breath,
letting all the images of the mind dissolve freely,
enjoying the Life that you altogether are,
no force and no ambition…
Just feeling the joy of being alive, embodied and breathing,
relaxing into the depths of your Heart,
here and now,

I love interacting with people/my students in different creative ways. I enjoy having supportive communication and also learning from and with them. I also like seeing how much I can learn about myself by teaching others. I love the possibility that my teachings could make some positive impact on someone’s life. Teaching yoga for me is some form of activism and I particularly enjoy maintaining the authentic transmission of ancient knowledge and develop sincere relationships with serious practitioners.
