BRYNN BYRNE DARDANES
Yoga is something I came to my freshman year of college. It presented itself in a time of upheaval and quickly became not just a refuge but also a way of understanding and interpreting life. All people practice Yoga in some way. That is because Yoga is the awakening and the effort to become a better person. For a Yogi, this usually begins through restoring health of the mind and body. When the mind and body become healthier, it gets easier to be a kind person- and to actually mean it. It gets easier to share with the world the unique talents each one of us possesses.
I try, sometimes very poorly, to live Yoga. I do this by reflecting on my thoughts and actions. I do it by continually and gradually training myself to respond to life's circumstances in a better and higher way. Sometimes living Yoga means I can only be truthful, even if it hurts and it doesn't come out right. Sometimes it means I extend compassion. Sometimes it means I am willing to try something in a totally new and different way.
I say all of this to convey that whoever takes a Yoga Course with me is receiving the whole of my Yoga journey through that course. Yoga is very expansive. In the classroom setting I can only convey so much verbally and instructionally. My prayer is also to convey non-verbally the effort, beauty, surrender and humility of a life of dedicated to something much greater.
