Dear YogaDownload Students! You inspire me. It really takes something to cultivate a home practice. My hope is that you will explore the many incredible offerings from this community.

What are some other passions in your life or things that give you purpose and benefit your well-being? Aside from yoga, one of my dearest passions is being a beekeeper. I don't tend commercial bees nor harvest very much honey. For me, beekeeping is being a steward of the honeybees — I do my best to support them with nectar when they need it, aid their adjustments to the seasons and help control the spread of disease. In return, I receive from the bees lessons, both bitter and sweet, about how nature works and how to slow down and experience life in more detail. Going into a hive box pulls me into the present moment and every colony I've tended has taught me something.

How do you think yoga can help our world? Yoga doesn’t help the world. It’s not a magic potion, some sort of sacred ointment made of handstands and weird breathing you apply to life’s problem areas. All truly aligned, time-tested spiritual practices serve the same purpose – to (eventually) reveal to the seeker what they know, deep down, already exists, but perhaps forgot: that divine center, your “essence nature” – i.e.; that stable, wordless, unfucked-with Godhead, the Self that’s been there since the beginning of the beginning. When this Self is more fully awakened – be it with the help of meditation, asana, chanting, or myriad other sacred technique – what naturally re-emerges will look very much like… gratitude. Or kindness. Love. Compassion. Generosity. Empathy. Unicorns dancing on the head of Jesus. Pick any one, they’re all the same. For most sentient beings on Earth, this is the natural expression of your true Self. This is what spontaneously arises when all the other noise and nonsense of the ego have finally calmed down. So then: Yoga doesn’t help the world. You help the world, by skillfully, avidly expressing your divine Self, every damn day. Yoga is simply the revelatory catalyst.

Sweet YDL students, It is an absolute honor to be a teacher in your life. A concept that inspires me the most is the idea of a lit candle and the power of seeing that candle light others and those candles light others and so on. Before you know it, the whole world will shine brighter. The power of is that I have the opportunity to spark the light within you and you have the chance to spread that light. Together we make a ripple effect. To even consider that your downdog and backbend work in your kitchen or a hotel room might be impacting lives for the better across the globe brings a giant smile to my face. I bow deeply in gratitude.

To have a student choose to spend their time receiving guidance from me is the greatest gift! All I want to do through teaching is to connect to other people, to show up authentically with vulnerability, and to create space for students to do the same. When teaching, my aim is to guide students through a journey of self-awareness, which will gradually allow them to move through their lives with more openness and receptivity. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to practice with me. :)
