I believe that everything in life is a mirror for us. So when we take responsibility for what is in our reality, we realize we hold the power to create whatever it is we want.
Yoga impacts change in the world because the internal force that is awakened in the individual in this practice to grow, evolve, and heal, extends far beyond the boundaries of that persons skin.
I believe World Peace requires us, one by one to go inward. Yoga is a gateway to the portal of self-love and to loving all others and the planet. A heart space from which conscious decisions aligned to the highest good.
I see yoga as such a valuable tool for change in the world. Yoga has such a long running history of folding people into the wisdom of our own bodies and a way to take responsibility for our own actions, thoughts and lives.
Yoga can empower people to create a brighter future for themselves and their communities. In our own local communities, in schools, in prisons, and in underdeveloped countries, yoga is a powerful instrument of change.
