When I rediscovered yoga, my goal was not enlightenment. An old injury had flared up and led to surgery. Hoping to avoid that sort of discomfort again I grabbed my mat, found a studio, and began to practice. I began to feel better and soon teamed up with a friend and we committed to practice together. (yoga + buddies = brilliant!)
I found strength, focus, and a calm I had thought I could only find after hours of work on an art project. You could call it peace. It became important to me to share what I had found, and so began my training with Stephanie Keach, at the Asheville Yoga Center.
A childhood book planted the seed. Miss Alice Rumphius was told by her grandfather that she could, indeed, travel to far away places, and then grow old and live by the sea, but she must also do something to make the world more beautiful. Her answer was to spread lupine seeds as she walked, sowing color and joy. My answer is to teach yoga. My hope is that by helping people find their own strength and peace the way will be cleared for each to find his or her own answer.
