Tell us how you see yoga, and what kind of events you would like to see include yoga.

I think everything is yoga.

How long have you been into yoga?

Since the early 1970's. Notable teachers: Sri Dadaji (Amiya Roy Chowdhury), also Supreme Ultimate Fist (T'ai Ch'i Ch'uan) Master Wen Chi Huang. I met Professor Wen Chi Huang in 1971. Started yoga in 1972. I knew Dadaji the last 14 years of his life, from 1978 to 1992. I am teaching the lessons I learned from him, along with what I have learned over the course of my life and 40 years of yoga. Supreme Ultimate Fist (T'ai Chi Ch'uan) and Raja Yoga are integrated in my clinical practice as a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) and Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT), along with Dance and Posture. I am also Board Certified in Massage Therapy and Bodywork (BCTMB). The yoga I teach is centered in posture awareness. From working on thousands of people over the years, I have developed a method of helping people to align with nature, to find classic neutral posture, which helps many conditions. Yoga is integrated with massage therapy to help restructure the body.

Where do you want to do yoga next in the Portland Metro area?

My studio, at Healing Light Yoga and Massage, in the heart of the Hollywood District. Anywhere, everywhere! Yoga is every moment.

What would you like to see happen in the present and future with yoga?

Yoga is a way of life, of high awareness, with an open heart and mind. It is about giving with no expectation. Seva = selfless sacrifice describes the highest goal of yoga, to leave the ego behind, and serve all as one, equal. To me, yoga is about opening to love, high awareness, and helping others. The full 8-limbed Royal Path of Yoga as described by Patanjali encompasses this way, a natural path of life. Supreme wellness is attained through balancing of the 8 limbs, Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana, Samadhi. I would like to see this enlightenment blossom now and in the future everywhere in the world. Kaivalya, absolute freedom is our birthright. This is the goal and path of yoga. Path and goal are one. Namaste, Steve
