See the world how you want to see not how anyone else wants you to see it.
It is also important to me to give back. My seva (Seva (say-va) is a Sanskrit word for selfless service) I taught classes at one of Father Joe's complexes. These women were once homeless and absolutely incredible. Their stories touched my heart so deeply. The struggles they faced in the worst of times of their lives and how they climbed out of the deepest of deep submerges really put things in perspective and really inspired me. It was an honor sharing my teachings with this group. Yoga allowed an opening for them, which gave a sense of clarity and strength to incorporate throughout their everyday lives.

When people ask me about yoga, I inform them that this is a lifestyle, which takes discipline. I explain discipline as meaning love and devotion. It takes love and devotion to be disciplined in any aspect or activity of our life. Practicing or teaching the history, art and beauty of yoga is expressing and exploring the inner-play within ourselves through meditation and awareness. We are faced with many temptations and stresses; if we remain present and are able to pause and notice, we can make better decisions and react in a way that will benefit our being and others.
