yoga • ayurveda • sanskrit

I have been practicing and studying ashtanga since 2008, initially learning from teachers Dave and Cheryl Oliver in Scottsdale, Arizona. I was fortunate because they taught me so much more than poses. They introduced philosophy, chanting, sanskrit and the adjusting of poses. I have also learned from many other teachers, books and classes, but what I ultimately discovered is that the best teacher is my own practice. I learn every time I get on the mat. I experience, I feel and I discover. I learn about myself. And I learn about my body in the poses. There is no better teacher than experience itself.
