When we were born, our souls were dropped into a world of restraints: a physical form, within a family, within a community, within a culture, bearing the karma that came in with us and gradually building a lifetime of conditioning. It’s no wonder we humans often struggle to feel natural and free.
This is why love is such a powerful force for us.
Love is the word we give to experiences of connection – whether it’s to another human being, a piece of artwork, a special place, or an inspiring idea. During moments of connection, our boundaries shatter. The small self dissolves, and we tap into a spacious place of openness, tranquility, and ease. We enter into an experience of flow that reveals a glimpse of infinite possibility. We easily recognize our union with others, and we feel our interconnectedness with the world.
Love is the driving force of my work. I believe we, as human beings, have a vast capacity for love, kindness, and compassion, and we just need the nurturing support of educational experiences to expand into this potential.
Yoga practice is a vehicle to liberate ourselves from the bonds that restrict our capacity to experience love. Using the psycho-technologies and methodologies of yoga, we can repeatedly open our consciousness up to wider physical, cognitive, imaginative, and emotional possibilities and give ourselves access to more range, freedom, and flexibility on a daily basis.
