Yoga = Union

As a yoga teacher, I'm compelled to learn, continue to grow, meditate and pass on these teachings so my fellow yogis can do the same. Yoga means to join, to bring together.




Yoga teaches us to quiet the mind, the voices, in search of seeking our true selves.

Can we take this meaning of union into society?

Unionization of different cultures. 

Respect for different cultures. 

Respect for differences. 

Respecting differences in opinion.


We in America are angry. We are continuously shown our differences culturally and financially. 

There is a longing for acceptance. Yet, conversations today are more often than not shut down from differences of opinion. 


Finding peace in a challenging situation daily as well as in an asana is the practice. The search toward enlightenment, the practice of letting go of our ego, our thoughts, toward quieting the mind and working towards openness and guidance of love. ing finances? How is every aspect of their life different?


LOVE. 


We are made of love and we are in search of peace. 


Does rage get us closer to this goal of peace or push us farther from it?


“The pen is mightier than the sword.” E. Bulwer-Lutton


In order to reconcile differences, we need healthy dialogue and debate. 


Not violence.


How does this look in your yoga practice?

Do you have rage within yourself? Toward yourself? Toward others? 

Do you have love within yourself? Toward yourself? Toward others?


In order to understand one another we have to have compassion.  How do we have compassion? Step outside of your ego and into a new pair of shoes. How does someone else’s typical day look like for them? How is work? How is living? How is navigating finances? How is every aspect of their life different?


Placed inside different shoes can be an awakening journey. One toward enlightenment, one toward understanding, one toward compassion. 


Yoga teaches us to daily come to this place of compassion and understanding so we can find peace.

What do you believe in? What do you believe is mightier? Why do you believe it is the best choice? Can you picture this choice 50 years from now and how it affects everything?


Finding peace in a challenging situation daily as well as in an asana is the practice. The search toward enlightenment, practice of letting go of our ego, our thoughts, toward quieting the mind and working towards openness and guidance of love.
