I glow

It’s official. I am a certified Ashtanga Yoga Teacher. I’m so proud. I’m almost glowing. I feel like a little light bulb, as if I’ve seen the light (Thank you Ronak, for guiding me to that feeling).
We’re all in this together. We all feel the urge to smile, grow and discover. We all feel the benefits of a good backbend, a deep twist of the inner organs, a smooth but strong prasarita padottanasana. How sweet it is to share my story with you guys, girls, yogi's and others. How wonderful it is to come home to a mindset of non-judgment, compassion, trustworthiness and faith. Let me repeat my new found mantra: Have faith, instead of fear. Have faith, all is fine. I am me, and I'm exactly where I should be.
Let’s finish with one of the lessons that spoke to me most: “Surrender is the simple yet profound wisdom of yielding to rather than opposing to the flow of life. The only place where you can experience the flow of life is the Now, so to surrender is to accept the present moment unconditionally and without reservation. Resistance is in the mind. Acceptance of what is immediately frees you from mind identification and reconnects you with being.”
Thank you Marc. Thank you Ronak, Tanya, Angelica, Gabriella, Alexandra, Elisa, Anita, Tracey, Yvonne, Sinziana, Céline, Fabiola and Maren. Thank you for sharing your stories, your time, your practice and light. Now let’s do what we are trained to be doing: Let’s live in the light, on and off the mat. Together. See you at the Studio.

let me in

Oh light, let me see. Oh God, let me in. Show me your light, the road I have to follow. Show me what is right. Tell me how to act, and when to be silent. Help me find truth. Help me be brave. Help me find my way in the dark. Oh light, set me free. Namaste.
