Movement is one of my biggest loves in life. It makes me feel alive. It makes me feel present. When I move and shift physically, I move and shift emotionally, mentally, spiritually. It's a mediation, a way for me to connect. Moving in nature is probably my favorite thing to do. I love that I can guide others to move too, through teaching yoga classes. My love for movement is a big reason why I do what I do.
This year has been the biggest year of learning I have ever experienced, in the books and in life. Studying osteopathy, Te Reo Māori and yoga while also going through the biggest changes in my life have been overwhelming at times, but also incredible. I love integrating all of this into the way I teach and sharing it at the studio. Sharing what I know plays a role in why I do what I do.
The same inquiry that brought me to yoga lead me to osteopathy, they are essentially both helping me to answer my "why?". The inquiry began at seeing the body as one unit, a physical reflection of all the components that make up my reality. It then grew to wanting to balance the imbalances I feel physically, in order to reflect that into my reality. This was where my "why?" began. I then realised I find joy and energy when I help others to do the same, another reason why I do what I do.
