Ohi Yoga

So I'm visiting family and friends in mid-Ohio right now, which affords some amazing opportunities to reconnect with people who have known me since I was teeny-tiny, and to teach yoga to those same people! It's a pretty perfect combination of laid back vacation and still doing what I love to do, and staying sharp at it! I'm making use of all the carpet everyone has to work on my headstand.

Even in such zen surroundings, I'm still dealing with my headspaces. There are things that I'm worried about that I know I need to step back from and let the universe handle in its own time and its own way, and it's such a challenge! One of those things I'm facing all over again from what feels like square one each and every day. Well, I'm not giving up. I know the person I want to be, and I know I'm not there yet.

Man, headstand seems so easy all of a sudden...

Yoga Teachers

You never know who's going to step onto the mat with you. It's such an honor to have this chance to touch people; to show them something within themselves that they can reach.

It can be scary too. Yogis sometimes can treat you like you're one part doctor, one part counselor, one part mother, and one part best friend. In a way I guess we are those things, but mostly we're not! We're just fellow yogis, helping to lead you down this path you've chosen for yourself.

Honor the teacher within yourself first and foremost. That's the one with the answers you seek.
