This practice is about transformation - The transformation of the self - The healing of the self
This practice is so much more than an exercise routine. Because of this practice I learned the importance of bringing the body into alignment with its natural rhythms. I know that when I am sleeping well, nourishing myself, honoring rest, finding time for silence, moving my body and connecting with those that feed my soul I show up more in alignment with my core values. I am a better teacher. I am a better mother. I am a better partner. And the world deserves that. I know that when my physical body is not in alignment with its natural rhythms I am more reactive, less patient, less kind, more judgmental. So I am committed to this practice. Everyday. Because I believe that when we heal ourselves, we heal the world.
Transform Your Life!
You deserve to live a life that feels whole. You deserve to feel the joy that comes from living on purpose. Your people deserve the best of you.
