Who am I? In the words of the great Nisargadatta Maharaj, “I AM”….without any adjectives, without any finite labels or boundary edges, I am BEYOND THE LIMITATIONS OF MY BODY AND MIND…….LIMITLESS! While I do have glimpses of this experience, I more often define myself by the lovely labels life has given me or I have given to myself.
First and foremost I am a spiritual being having an earthly, human experience! I’m a WOMAN, YOGA PRACTITIONER, YOGA TEACHER, ACTRESS, SINGER, HARMONIUM PLAYING, FRIEND, WIFE, MOM, DAUGHTER who loves sautéd spinach or kale with garlic, olive oil and lemon! I’m often found teaching yoga class and lead the JIVASARA YOGA TEACHER TRAINING, that honors both the JIVAMUKTI and ANUSARA YOGA methods. I’m the creator of mantra mixed Indu Aromatherapy Products that were born out of MY LOVE FOR YOGA which bring happiness and serenity to the world!
What I am a TOTALLY AFRAID of but am going to tackle now? A polar bear, freezing cold plunge into 39 degree water! I am a freeze baby and have that Raynaud’s Disease where if the wind blows or the AC is at 65 degrees, my fingers go numb and often turn a whitish blue. I am going to BRAVE THE COLD and JUMP IN! EEEEK! I hear if I do this regularly it will heal my circulation issues as well as cultivate confidence, mental strength and focus! Yikes and Yipee!
