Fire only burns as bright as there are flames to continue keeping it alive. Our Blissology Yoga Teacher’s Collective is burning bright and we are so excited to share the first of our Bliss Blogs on some of the amazing spirits and shining lights who are continuing to speak, connect and inspire their Bliss.
Where in the world you can find me:
Shanghai, China at Pure Yoga.
What originally drew me to yoga:
I worked as an accountant at that time and Yoga was a way for me to get out of my head and more into my heart. I was instantly drawn to the physical practice and it is what I use still today to keep my body, mind are heart feeling alive.
Blissology to me is…
a supportive community of people that not only share the benefits of Yoga with the world but protect the world they live in.
My life mission is…
to inspire with my practice and empower with my teaching.
The most important thing yoga has taught me is…
the only person that can transform you, is yourself.
When I’m not on the yoga mat, I’m…
taking photos, drinking coffee, reading Iyengar books or playing Acro Yoga.
The cause/project I am most passionate about is…
spreading the benefits of Yoga that has been passed to me through my teachers.
I am learning to…
take Yoga photos. I love capturing people in their full state of awareness.
What I want to teach others (through yoga) is to…
live more in alignment with our true self. Many distractions pull us away from living from this place; Yoga is a way to not only fully understand our true self but to reconnect with our true self through practice.
Most inspiring yoga related experience:
2015 Vancouver Blissology Teacher Training, at that time I just left the corporate world and was looking for my calling. The training was inspiring on many levels but the most inspiring part for me was seeing how Eoin created an environment where people felt safe to deal with any issues they had.
Favorite yoga pose:
Scorpion, I love inverted backbends because they show balance in a practice. The combination of strength, flexibility and balance.
Best way to fuel up after yoga:
Yoga and music are…
a way to realise our true self and also a way to express our true self.
I create community with Blissology by…
creating a connection between people. Each class I do partner work to create this connection. Also share a little bit of my Blissology experience before I teach each class.
I am most grateful for…
the chance to share the benefits that I have received through Yoga with others.
My advice for aspiring yoga teachers:
Don’t wait, when you finish your training teach straight away.
You will feel you will not be ready but that feeling gets stronger the longer you wait, go and share the love!!!
