I am so joyful about starting this class! I am practicing asana to go home and to peal back the layers... I have a recurring dream (for years) about trying to remove clothing, usually before showering, and never achieving it. I pull off one item, and there is another. ...
Suzanna I'm so happy you are here! I absolutely LOVE the phrase -you practice asana to go home!

Asana, tai chi... walking in nature... dance... and so on - make me feel alive, I am more able to feel life flow through me. I can't imagine not MOVING in these ways... And then, to share asana with others and perhaps help them find new ways to open up to life's infinite possibilities : )

Wow, I had never pondered this question!

After the birth of my youngest 6 years ago, through some complications that occurred, I had to learn to walk again. Which I did! But at the time, I felt so heavy and so trapped in my body. So Asana for ME means freedom! Freedom, movement, strength and health.
Oh that's so beautiful Stacie !
