Firstly you don’t need to believe in anything, or be anything but who you are right now. You can be a Christian minister or an athiest, male, female or transgender, young or old, fit or not. Yoga is for everyone. Yoga is a powerful tool that I believe should be accessible to everyone. For this reason my classes are non denominational, they are based around relieving tension in the physical body to experience a greater sense of peace, pleasure, contentment and joy. Wherever you are right now is where we start. We focus on releasing tension, individual needs, long term health via posture and the rejuvenating aspects of yoga. You will often find inspiring quotes and may find a deep feeling of peace and spiritual awareness.
“Yoga teaches us to cure what need not be endured and endure what cannot be cured.”
In my personal life I enjoy aspects of many religions as well as keeping an open mind in terms of beliefs. I do what works for me: Heartfulness meditation, 5 rhythms dancing, Hindu chanting, Christian singing, Buddhist non-attachment practices, athiest thought and very superficial concepts of quantum physics and listening to teachers like Ram Dass, Sadguru and Thich Nhat Hanh.
I find the physical practice of yoga invaluable. It has supported and transformed me through a variety of testing life experiences. I welcome you to try yoga, at home or in classes. To start all you need is an openness to experience the physical body, to feeling better and a curiosity to find out more.
