What should you expect?
Patience. I have a lot of it to offer. If you navigate to the "About" section, you will see a photo on this site of me in dancer's pose, also known as Natarajasana in Sanskrit. It took me around 3 years to fully develop the mindset, flexibility, and concentration to understand this pose ("asana"). It was not the difficulty of the pose that took me as long as it did. Getting into an asana or learning how to balance on one's head is not the foundation of a yoga practice. Rather, yoga is a an eight limbed path in which self-reflection continues to drive your personal relationship with your practice. If you would like to learn more or even try out a coaching session, please contact me.
When contacting, please provide a good time to be reached and a brief introduction as to why you would like to begin to develop your practice. I teach other forms of yoga, such as pranayama or breath control. This is one way to develop focus and patience for guiding the body and mind into deeper self-awareness or Dharana. For more information on the eight limbs of yoga, please navigate here.
Want to try yoga, but afraid of attending classes? Please contact me and book a free teaching session in the DC Metro Area or via Skype.
“Undisturbed calmness of mind is attained by cultivating friendliness toward the happy, compassion for the unhappy, delight in the virtuous, and indifference toward the wicked.”
The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali
As a graduate of Washington D.C.'s Yoga District 200 hour teacher training, I am most familiar with Sri Dharma Mittra Yoga. I teach two different styles of vinyasa yoga: Dharma and Power. I modify my style to fit the needs of students.
"Anybody, who wants to, can practice yoga. Anybody can breathe. Therefore, anybody can practice yoga. But, no one can practice every kind of yoga. It has to be the right yoga for the person. The student and teacher meet and decide on a program that is acceptable and suitable to the person." - T.K. V. Desikachar, The Heart of Yoga.
