More Information on Ashtanga Yoga

When I first decided to get certified as a yoga teacher I thought I'd be teaching in gyms or studios, not really sure how I was going to get classes. Then Kaiser contacted the institute in S.F. looking for an instructor. I was and still am one of the few Yoga Burn  Integral Yoga teachers in the east bay. Living in Oakland at the time, Fremont Kaiser was a commute, but I went for the interview anyway. This is now my eleventh year teaching yoga in the tri-city area and I love every minute of it.

I began teaching level 1 classes, then added a gentle class because so many students were being referred by their doctors to me and had many varying health issues. Teaching people with so many different issues was challenging. There is no way anyone can show you how to teach and accommodate all these issues.It took me a long time to be able to tune in and help people modify poses according to their needs.

Gentle yoga students have a special place in my heart 'because I know it takes a lot more for them to show up, despite the discomfort they have. They have been more my teachers than I theirs, just because of my being forced to figure things out to try and help them. They are a very neglected part of the yoga population, as well as people recovering from stokes, cerebral palsy, polio, muscular dystrophy to name a few. Even the regular students who come are the kinds of people who would never go to a yoga studio, because of the seeming competitive nature, slim bodies, and latest yoga fashions.

I have been humbled consistently with the beautiful spirits of these special people and am honored and inspired to continue to reach out to those who thought yoga was something they could never do. I have taught a few people privately who needed the extra attention, and work to empower them to feel more comfortable in their sacred bodies. I believe we are given everything for a divine reason and I hold everyone in that space. Having a daughter with downs syndrome has helped me understand the special needs population more, and maybe the universe was preparing me for the path I am now on. The beauty is certainly in the journey, not the destination. Who knew?
