I feel one of Yoga’s most precious gifts to humanity lies in its emphasis on our relationship to ourselves and to all other Beings around us. It is a constant challenge to apply a fluid stream of tolerance, kindness and contentment in our daily lives, but as result of my own spiritual search, I am persuaded it can only start from contemplative work we do within ourselves.
After attending my first class back in 1997, I continue to be drawn to Yoga as a daily practice, in and beyond its physical aspect. I am fascinated by Yoga philosophy, the work with our breath, and what lies beyond our physicality, and find myself drawn ever deeper into the legacy that Yoga has left us.
I completed my training at Brahmani Yoga in 2009 and since have had the privilege to participate in assisting and teaching at several of Brahmani’s TT programs and public classes of Asana, Pranayama and Meditation. I feel ever grateful to my teacher Julie for tutoring me. Her approach to educate us to become good teachers and the structure of her trainings is extremely thorough!
Today, my Yoga classes are inspired by my heart teacher and husband Emil Wendel.
My intention as a guide and teacher is to encourage us all to learn to be awake to the present, remaining self-observant, inquisitive, and kind to one another. I find that the quality of being joyous and non-dogmatic along our spiritual journey helps to cultivate a lightness of being.
