Primarily, I practice yoga because it helps me to be a better person and it is the process by which awakening occurs, which is my primary motive. And I’m interested in awakening for the benefit of others. So I strive for enlightenment to help others encounter the realization as well. Yoga practice also feels incredible and is a process that I find endlessly fascinating – from the refinement aspects to the large, sweaty, flowing power of larger scale vinyasa. I enjoy Vashisthasana because of its dynamic exchange of core and periphery as well as the feeling of immense potential energy that emerges from that relationship – it feels like a celebration of life.
