"I believe yoga practice resides in the relationships we have with ourselves, others and the world around us. It is in how we respond each moment, each day, to the circumstances that life presents to us. This is where we deploy our yoga practice...
..and so we practice. Each and every day is another opportunity to wake up, breathe and experience deeply and intimately, our life."
Peace and Love from the mat,
