I have always loved to “move”; even as a child.
I loved ballet and dabbled in Yoga during my college years, but became completely enamored with it about 20+ years ago and continued with a dedicated practice when a local gym was the only Yoga offering in the area!!! So many of us studied under the tutelage of Nora Forte (Fox)!
I love this quote by Kino McGregor:
Yoga trains the mind to stay in places of difficulty instead of running away and developing protective measures . In yoga , there is no room for defense mechanisms . In fact , the yoga poses are designed to strip away every protective layer you may have developed to reveal the inner purity at the heart of your being . "
