At some point in life, we all ask the question, “What should I do with my life?”. Sometimes, the answer finds us. Yoga snuck its way into my life, a little at a time, like water carving into stone. One fine day, I realized that no matter what else I do in life, I needed yoga, and I needed to pass it on to other willing victims.
While yoga may seem nebulous and has 5000 definitions (and counting), some of which can be downright esoteric and elusive, to me, a yoga practice is a personal exploration of my own body and mind. It’s me getting to know myself.
There are a lot of yoga styles out there, and surely many on the way. I focus on the fundamental principles of anatomy and kinesiology, the tools and techniques to build a personal practice.
When I teach, I have three goals: safety in the body, clear communication in the techniques of the poses and passing on the teachings yoga philosophy, and being very serious about having a sense of humor. I have a large repertoire of silly one-liner jokes that I hope you will add to. Find out more about me at Yoga with Nikki Chau.
