Yoga & Buddhadharma
Are you ready to lean in to whatever arises?
A famous Buddhist parable describes the suffering of ordinary life. Imagine that you are struck by an arrow. It's painful for sure. Imagine you are struck by a second arrow in the same place. It hurts even more.
As we go through life, we are going to be hit with many, many first arrows. But that second arrow? The second arrow represents our reaction to the first one. The second arrow is optional.
Practices to Help You Survive and Thrive
In my classes and programs, I share time-tested methods that help you cultivate the essential inner resources of resilience, courage, and genuine happiness so that you can avoid the pain of the second arrow and lean into your life, no matter the challenges you face.
With over 20 years experience as a student and 18 years as a teacher, my influences are diverse. These days, my personal practice and teaching centers around:
Yin Yoga: a quiet, uncomplicated, and non-authoritarian practice that reduces stress and anxiety, cultivates balance, and can help you transform difficulties into lasting happiness.
Self-Awakening Yoga: related to Kripalu Yoga, the gentle movement kriyas of SAY are designed to recover freedom of movement, mobilize stagnant energy, and unleash the body’s natural intelligence for transformation and healing.
Taoist Energetic Practices (Qigong): meditations and contemplations to invigorate the energy body while cultivating a restful and peaceful inner orientation.
Buddhist Mindfulness & Buddadharma: from the Theravada and Zen traditions to train the mind and cultivate a compassionate mindset.
