The purpose, I want people to explore and discover Yoga... I know Yoga can be intimidating at the beginning, we all had those first classes, I didn't know what I was doing or being very frustrated with so much going on. I was fighting my ego, "why i couldn't do what people seemed to do so easily?"... But I continued to try, and practiced, and tried again and let go, and tried again; and one day things changed... and I started to enjoy it more and more. It is rewarding when we see our progress in our asana practice... And one day, this amazing YOGA practice opens other channels and bring us the gifts. One realizes: "Wow, I'm more peaceful, because of my yoga"; 'I'm not reacting as I used to, and it is because of my yoga"... 'I'm finding more inner peace, because of my yoga'... 'I'm sleeping better, because of my yoga'... "I have so much more energy, because of my yoga'... etc, etc, etc. And, that's what I want to do: I want HELP people discover how much is behind this amazing practice... We only need to make the time, be patient and let it come. I've gotten here thanks to the amazing teachers who had guided me and continue to do so... Thanks to all my teachers who had helped me get my practice where is at... You been my inspiration. I'm honor to extend your teachings, and the teachings of your teachers. I honor and bow to you, my teachers and the teachers of teachers. (prayer to the teacher) Guru Brahma, Guru Vishnu, Guru Devo, Maheshwara.
