What does the new year mean to you? Maybe nothing. The ball drops, you kiss your partner, bang some pots and pans if you're feeling feisty, and then go about the rest of your life. Or maybe you get excited and motivated to make this-that-or-the-next change, only to watch your focus and determination fizzle away in the first few weeks of January when your old obstacles and repetitive patterns of behavior rear up.
Whether you are the "full steam ahead" type, the "what's the point" type, or some other variation, transforming your life in the year ahead CAN happen. But it doesn't happen in the space of a few weeks or even a few months. And it's not a measurable reliable process of steady improvements. Life happens as a series of stops and starts, advances and pitfalls. Without an intention to begin the journey of change, and the awareness of what you are looking for, a path forward will not present itself.
There is not just one path to addressing your own suffering, but the complete practice of yoga was the path that presented itself to me at a dark time in my life, and it worked (as I talk about here in my website). Because I continue the journey of knowledge and self-study, my life continues to transform. I know this with complete certainty, and I don't put that lightly, because I am a natural cynic.
I can't speak to all paths, and the yogic journey may not interest you at all. But if the physical, mental, and spiritual philosophy of yoga resonates with you as well, then join me in 2020 as I share with you the deeper practices of self-study and meditation that changed my life.
My hope for 2020 is to add more workshops and deeper teachings to my regular asana schedule. I also hope to set up a space to begin teaching private sessions. If you are interested in staying updated with the latest offerings, please sign up for my email newsletter. Thanks for reading, and I wish you all the best on your personal spiritual path.
I want to share with you the yoga I practice, teach, and live.
