I’ve discovered that we all struggle. We all experience stress. We all have fears and doubts and worries and frustrations. We are all human. As such, we also all have the capacity to love, to appreciate and to connect to the peaceful place that rests inside of us.
Teaching yoga and meditation for over 10 years, to tens of thousands of people from all around the world, I’ve learned that although we are each unique, we all inherently want to feel good, to love and be loved, to appreciate and be appreciated, to discover and uncover our best self. In these ways we are all the same.
I’ve noticed, for myself and many of my students, that although the practices of yoga and meditation certainly help us tap into the calm and peace that resides within, with sporadic practice comes sporadic results. However, when we establish a consistent daily meditation practice, that inner peace seeps more consistently and fully into every aspect of our lives.
I’ve never been someone who likes routine. I love change and unpredictability, so it took me many years of on and off meditating, to finally ritualize it and place it strategically in my morning routine, and the results have been life changing.
