"I practice yoga because it keeps me spacious, confronts me with the important work and allows me to develop an incredible friendship with myself. The practice never stops showing me the details in a very quiet, subtle way. Through dedication to the work I am able to find enjoyment in almost everything around me - I just operate better overall. I have incredible teachers and mentors that allow me to find my shine, the most important being myself. The influence of music, art, dance and friendship helps me find my stride on the daily and I love watching my practice spill over into everything I do."
