Yoga is hard. Because it's transformative.

It's not for the lazy.

It's for the damaged and the dedicated.

From the earliest 10th century Sanskrit treatises, yoga was presented foremost as a discipline. It's no coincidence that Patanjali's Sutras begins with an urgent call to attention in the study and practice of yoga.

Yoga, as a tool of self-improvement, is hard. You're meant to experience discomfort and to learn from it. You're meant to be pushed and to push back against those forces to find equanimity of mind and body.

Yoga isn't for the lazy, but the damaged and the dedicated. It offers each of us the promise that tomorrow can be better than yesterday. If you do the work of the practice.

As a teacher, I'm called to meet my students where they are—and, critically, to show them where they can go if they make the investment in themselves.

Asana as a tool

A yogasana practice requires you to breathe with intention and to move with precision so that you might learn what's necessary to do neither—to be still inside and out even and especially as the storm rages around and within you.

But one needn't contort themselves or defy gravity to access the profoundly therapeutic benefits of yoga, because there is no hierarchy in asana. One posture is no better than another.
