Yoga was a natural fit for me when I began at age 26. A professional stage actor, I used my body in my craft. But I had little intelligence or knowledge about my body. My first yoga class intrigued me. My second one, an Iyengar Yoga class, moved me. I left that class feeling clearer, calmer. It may sound cheesy to say it but I felt more like myself. Not the "self" I show to the world through performing or daily interactions with others. But my real self -- the deepest part of me. Of course, the feeling quickly faded until I went to my next class....and the next...and the next. Before long, I started practicing on my own. I'm 46 now, and still performing in theatre...but I'm stronger and sharper than I was 20 years ago. All because of yoga. It took me 8 years of teaching to decide to become a Certified teacher. This journey has been the most adventurous and exciting of my life.
