I love to teach yoga but I also love to be a student – learning from talented and deeply experienced instructors. Most recently I participated in two different trainings and so my mind is reeling with possibilities – for myself which of course will extend to my students. My mantra is, “you can be too flexible but not too strong”.

I owe a special thanks to Jennifer Adams-Hater from Kentucky. We’ve had an exchange over fb and she has so kindly agreed to share her story. I know that many of you can relate. Enjoy!
The inspiration for this post comes from one of my students, Andrew, who made this simple comment after attending class.
“When I arrived I felt one day closer to death” (a quote from Pink Floyd’s song, Time) and now I feel one day closer to living”.
