What does Yoga mean to you?

Yoga comes from the Sanskrit word 'yug' which means union. The physical asana (poses) are designed to ease the body into sitting for extended periods of meditation comfortably. At its core, Yoga brings a sense of unity with all things and beings, as we all share the same soul. This soul is Satchidananda ~ eternal, all knowledgable, and blissful. Yoga is a personal journey to discover the true nature of our soul, the true purpose of our lives. It is the science of self transformation. "Yoga aims to bring you a peaceful mind, an easeful body, and a useful life." - H.H. Sri Swami Satchidananda

Where do you like to go hiking?

I love to explore new places! Generally, I like to hike in Essex County, Morris County, and Sussex County, NJ. I grew up in West Orange and have been hiking at South Mountain Reservation for more than half of my life. I love being in nature. This past summer I found a few new spots in New York (right over the 287 N border), as well as some places near the Jersey shore. I hope to bring you a well rounded schedule of hikes to beautiful spots in the area.

What do you wish to accomplish or learn as part of this group?

Teaching and learning go hand in hand, so I wish to learn from you, as well as share my experiences. I wish to meet new friends and share the gift of Yoga with you all. Everyone has beauty and bliss, let me show you how to find it. The peace we seek is already within us. I wish to empower and guide other love beings to find Peace and Joy, Love and Light.
