I feel I have a unique style of teaching due to my unique clientele, the athlete – from little league to professional. I cannot be the omming, mellow teacher when I am working with this particular group of students. I come across while working as having a tougher, bring-greatness-out-of-you attitude. I have a holistic view to teaching – I feel strongly about balance, strength, flexibility, focus, breathing and goal setting. Doing yoga as just asana is like expecting to make a cake with just eggs and no flour, sugar or milk – it just will not happen.
It is my undeniable goal when I leave a session, group or private that I have planted enough seeds that my student will become more aware of their body, how it feels, its alignments and what it needs. I feel if you can alter someone's path for the better just two degrees, it will dramatically change the end of the story. Imagine if the Titanic shifted its course two degrees how different its result would have been.
I have been and always will be influenced most by the grace, presence, determination and drive of my students. I am largely self-taught and never been much for a specific guru. I have been quite fulfilled by the amazing people that chose me as their teacher. I only pray people can rise above their rough rides with my teachings and what I have learned through my own difficult experiences.
