Namah Yoga: My teaching philosophy: I am constantly in such a state of awe that I bow. I bow to the inextinguishable longing, present within every human being, to realize greatness, truth and love.
My intention is to invite the possibility for knowing greatness, truth and love in every moment by exercising openness, discipline and trust in equal measures.
My approach is through the practices of Yoga, practices that bring one into greater awareness of oneself. These methods for self-study include but are not limited to asana, meditation, chanting, physiology, kinesthetics, somatic awareness, anatomy, contemplation, seva (offering of one’s time and services.)
My method is through the science of Yoga. I use the word science because of this definition of the word: knowledge gained by systematic study. I have spent over ten thousand hours intently, joyfully, wondrously studying the physical form: my own body, those of my students, meditating on the forms of saints and divine beings, studying anatomy, body systems and embryology, and over 100 hours plumbing the depths of human cadavers.
