The Essence of My Yoga Practice

Accrescent:  growing continuously, specifically growing larger after flowering


Open to possibility and possibility will open you


I took my first yoga class on the verge of fatherhood at the age of 35.  In the preceding year I began doing yoga poses daily, oddly enough, with my Nintendo Wii, as a way to “feel good” in the morning and fend-off some of the physical injuries that seemingly plague every male member of my family (note:  Wii yoga is not yoga, but the potency of the poses was apparent to me in even then).  Over the years, my practice has been so many things for me:  an escape, an anchor, a workout, a restorer, a portal, a teacher, an ego crusher, medicine. Now I find that while I may feel different on a daily basis, my practice is an unshakable, ever-expanding constant, where as long as I continue to show up, what I offer to my practice is offered to me in return, often with dividends.   The fact that I practice and teach yoga is a reminder of the potential of possibility.
