Discovering one’s purpose is like finding a hidden treasure within. Each breath connects mind and body to weave a tapestry of awareness with threads of courage, curiosity, and compassion. It’s a journey of self-discovery where every step reveals a new layer of meaning and understanding.

Along this path, we encounter moments of spiritual awakening where the veils of illusion are lifted and we see the interconnectedness of all things. It’s in these moments that we realize our purpose isn’t just about what we do, but about who we are becoming and the impact we have on the world around us. So let us wander, embracing the path that leads us home to ourselves, where we are both lost and found in the magical mystery of the moment.

In contemplation, I’ve realized my purpose is to stay awake and aware in whatever else I find myself doing. Whether it is being a mother, a lover, a teacher, making food, doing housework, standing in line, solving problems, running a business, being an artist, helping others…my purpose is not just one thing. Yoga; the movements, stretches, breathing and inner observation; have been an opening to my purpose and have offered me the strength and ability to be…to purposefully be with what is.

For these reasons, I think everyone should embark upon a yoga teacher training. There is no better way that I have seen or experienced to learn how to be with one’s self, to learn what one is here to share, where one needs to dig a litter deeper or heal a bit more, to purposefully shine and light others up through a language unique to you.

Vinyasa means “to place”. The concept implies purpose. Vinyasa yoga is all about existing with purpose and living in alignment with awareness. It is a journey with no beginning and no ending, a circle where the center is everywhere and the circumference is nowhere.
