Why I teach

Teaching yoga is my excuse to continuously learn and grow. It allows me to master new techniques, develop my skills, and evolve alongside my students. Yoga is a multidimensional field that encompasses philosophy, self-development, anatomy, movement comprehension, energetics, and more. This richness allows for endless exploration, and it is this sense of exploration that excites me greatly.  I wouldn't change my job for anything in the world.
