The ideal of warriorship is that the warrior should be sad and tender, and because of that, the warrior can be very brave as well.
“ As I have shared with you before your beautiful studio has been and continues to be my sanctuary, and I hold a very special place in my heart for all of you. A few weeks ago my father passed away very unexpectedly. His passing has put a strain on my heart that I never knew existed. A few days after his passing my twin brother Evan flew home from his Naval ship in Japan. Upon his arrival he was struck with emotions he didn't know how to handle. I knew the only way to deal with the tragedy that had come upon us was to begin the healing process from the inside out....yoga.
Evan and I went to class that following night. Amongst all the pain that we were enduring, watching him practice yoga with a smile was the most beautiful contrast I have ever seen. We were amazed at the transformations that took place in our minds, hearts, and bodies in that short week. Being in the military, emotions are something you pretend don't exist, and I saw my brother learn to breathe, and confront his emotions. Learning to breathe is a lesson that will stay with him for the rest of his life.I can't express how wonderful it feels to be back in the studio, open my heart, let go and let the healing progress.
I want to thank you all for your amazing words, full hearts, and for sharing the gift of breath with my family and I."
