‘Work alone is your privilege, never the fruits thereof. Never let the fruits of action be your motive; and never cease to work. Work in the name of the Lord, abandoning selfish desires. Be not affected by success or failure. This equipoise is called Yoga.’
Bhagavad Gita – Quoted in the Light on Yoga by B.K.S Iyengar
My journey into Yoga started back in 2006, were my practice was solely for the physical aspect, and the result of feeling that a runner’s high was something that kept me going back for more. During this period of my life I was traveling around North, Central, and South America doing my I.T. nerdy thing. While I was visiting these city/countries, my curiosity would take me to the local studios and try different methods of Yoga. It would vary from Moksha, Vinyasa, Iyengar, Ashtanga, Power, and Bikram’s to Yin/restorative classes. The list can go on, but the one thing that started to awaken within me was an awareness of something much greater than myself and a connection to something that I could not describe. Fast forward to 2013, I find myself questioning everything about my life, and the one question that always kept popping up was the one that asked me “Are you doing what you Love?” …It was the last month of the year and I had quit my job, now with no purpose or direction in life. The only thing certain at this point in my life was that I had a flight to catch for Oahu, after 2 canceled flights and a supportive community holding me up as a stumbled with my decision of not going back home. Yoga was/is still the light that kept the path illuminated as I face my fears, dealt with overcoming my internal obstacles, and continue to help me developed a type of discipline in my life that had never been before. It was in 2014 that I would become certified as Yoga instructor, and the story continues as more chapters are being written each day.
It is an honor to be of services in Yoga, and in this community
