I think that…so, the way I look at it is that emotions are experienced in our body, and our body keeps that memory of previous experiences. And often when we have important events or like big experiences in our life, it will have an emotion...we will have an emotional response to it. And depending on how we process that event, at that time in our lives, I think those emotions can kind of get trapped or stuck in our bodies

I think where yoga can be helpful with that is that it helps us cultivate that self-awareness. And I think, when we make that intention to start to cultivate self-awareness, I believe that things start to make themselves more obvious to us. And we start maybe to see things differently, or to make connections that we may not have made in the past.

Like the way that I see emotions is that some of them that are easy to feel some of them are challenging for us to feel. And as we increase our ability to sit with the ones that are difficult to feel, is really how we can move them out and release them. And so, movement can be a good way to create awareness as well.

Core purpose / passion: | My purpose and vision is to change the way we (as a society and as individuals) look at emotional and mental health. I'm passionate about bringing the body back into the healing process through yoga. It's all connected and we're all connected. It's been so fascinating to me to see how different modalities, different cultures approach emotions. I'm passionate about people, learning how we operate and why we do the things we do. Yoga gives us a way to better understand ourselves and each other.
