Greetings and welcome to my website 🙂 Here is a little about who I am and what Alternative Asana is all about!
When I was 17 my best friend had just passed away and I had arrived at a fork in the road of my life. I could have either gone down a path of complete self-destruction, or a path of spiritual growth. This was right when my Father gifted me Thich Nhat Hanh’s book The Miracle of Mindfulness, and when a few friends introduced me to the practice of yoga.
Let’s just say that I read Hanh’s book in a day, and walked out of my first yoga class in a state of pure bliss. It became clear that I did not have to believe in every thought that came through my head and let my mind control my emotions. I finally started to understand what willpower meant.
Since then, everything in my life started to transform: my relationships, my body, the way I related to myself and the world. Love and understanding started to percolate through every aspect of my life – and this is what I want for you, my audience, and the world.
I am a firm believer that our environment is a reflection of the universe inside of us – and that in order for broad positive transformation to occur, the real change must come from within each of us. We all want this planet to be a healthier, happier place – and as we as a species cultivate mindfulness for the true well-being of our bodies, we can cultivate positive change for our environment.
I am not perfect. I have flaws and goals, parts of myself I want to improve and strengthen. Sharing my personal goals and journey of spiritual growth is a way to hold myself accountable and walk the talk – so thank you for reading and listening! I hope that the information you read here also helps you in your personal journey to happiness and wellbeing.
