My Dearest Yoga Students,
I am here to teach you how to recognise your own needs. How to receive love and how to heal yourself. I am here to teach you techniques for opening up your channel of energy and how to properly maintain that channel. None of this may make any sense to you right now. That is totally fine.
Being a yoga teacher does not make me an expert on life and all things spiritual. I can only authentically share what I have learned from my own experience. Do not put me on a pedestal or convince yourself that I have super human powers. Whatever wisdom I may or may not possess, you have as well. We are all perfectly imperfect beings on an endless path of self-healing and growth. I am always working on myself, just as you will be.
It’s your job to put these techniques into practice in a way that fits with your daily life. I can instruct and inspire, but you must do the work.
The days you feel like skipping your spiritual practice are the days you need it the most. Thirty minutes per day is sufficient, unless you are super busy, in which case I recommend an hour. After many years or lifetimes, your practice will be in each breath, every single moment of the day. Don’t worry—I’m a long way off from that too! We all have to begin somewhere.

There are bountiful rewards to a thriving spiritual practice, but you will not taste the fruits of your efforts if you quit too early or take on more than you can handle. It is better to do less, but do it with vigour and consistency.
Re-wiring your habits and behaviour will be difficult, but don’t forget to relish the incredible moments of pure, unimaginable bliss that you will experience! They will sustain you during the challenging periods and motivate you to continue. Know that the blissful moments will exponentially grow over time.
Despite my human flaws and failings, my greatest commitment to you is this: I personally follow everything I teach, and I know that it brings me greater joy and love. Trust in that. I only share and teach what I have experienced, and you will hear what you need to based upon what resonates the loudest in that particular moment.
As you change your vibration over time, you will internalise other, deeper areas of the yogic teachings. The practice will remain the same as always, but you will perceive it differently. It will constantly evolve and take on fresh new meanings, coaxing you into expanded levels of awareness.
