I believe every woman has courage and fear, strength and weaknesses, and also beautiful tears and smiles .We can learn so much from each other. We can support each other, share empathy, strength and compassion throughout the day. I just think as women we are so blessed. This to me is a form of beauty, an appreciation of life in its fullest sense. So, I am sharing with you something I found to be beautiful on my life’s journey.
Yoga as an art which takes a holistic view of person, came to me as a gift, which I have embraced into my life.
My journey as a yoga teacher started in New Zealand, after completing my Master on Leisure and Recreation, I became an accredited Yoga teacher. I taught classes to women and men but also became interested in teaching yoga to children. That time I had three beautiful boys in the school. I wanted to encourage them to be more aware of their breathing and their posture in class, so it would help them to relax and learn more effectively. Although I didn’t know it at the time I was developing the basis for Yoga Through My Day.
I did a lot of thinking on how I could share my ideas with more women and children. You would not believe how many monologues and dialogues I had with myself! So, I decided the first thing I needed to do was to simplify my priorities.
We all have different priorities during our different stages of life. There needs to be a way to simplify so many contesting priorities: for me yoga has given me that. Incorporating the beauty of Yoga Through My Day into daily life and sharing it for all to benefit from, is something I enjoy most about yoga.
