I must say that I am so, so happy to be teaching more and more classes. To have private students and six group classes per week is an honour. As I always say;
Without students, there are no teachers.
Thank you to everyone who comes to class, who trusts me with their body, who lets me hear their breath, who is patient with my bilingual instructions and who smiles, and looks peaceful afterwards. I am truly honoured.
I don’t think that, all those years ago at the YMCA in Toronto when I became a personal trainer and step aerobics instructor, I ever thought I would earn my living in this field. I just did exercise because it made me feel good, it kept the black dog at bay. When I found yoga, or when yoga found me, I realised that I could make that black dog stay away permanently. Now, my mission is to help other people learn this same thing. We can live happily, we have a fount of joy within us and we can find it, over and over again, reproducibly. Yoga shows us the path to our own inner joy. The Guru is within you, we just need pointing in the right direction. That’s all I am here to do, and I will do it to the best of my ability, consistently and caringly. I just want to make the world smile, that’s all.
