This is one of the questions yoga helps us to answer. Because things are always changing, it is a question we should ask ourselves often. Here is my answer:
As a 67 year old yoga instructor having taught for almost 30 years, I cater to people who are having difficulties moving due to injuries, aging or inactivity. I have had many body issues over the course of my lifetime and I have great compassion.
I also welcome people who are fit and want to stay that way! All ages and sizes welcome.
I teach yoga as a spiritual practice and I integrate teachings from various spiritual perspectives. short meditations and breath work sessions are woven thru the practice.
I love teaching massage to couples. I teach techniques from thai , shiatsu and swedish massage. Using our feet and body weight helps make it easier to give a good massage.
I have done massage for more than 20 years. I use tools from thai, shiatsu , swedish as well as myofascial release and positional release.
I currently do massage in Shoreview and Spring Lake Park. Before covid I did masssage for employees of HCMC and I miss that..
Who are you, and how has it changed since covid?
