Welcome to Open Lotus Yoga the blog / website to follow my journey as a Yogi. I have been practicing and teaching yoga for more than 15 years. I have received yoga teacher trainings from Fittour, Integrative Yoga Therapy, Yoga for People living with Multiple Sclerosis from the National MS Society, Chair Yoga and Yoga Anatomy. Besides being a yoga teacher I am also a Reiki Master and Thai Yoga Bodyworker.
All that seems pretty amazing to me all written out but every now and then someone asks me have you been to India? I am now beginning my journey to the birth place of yoga and about to pursue a Traditional Yoga Teacher Training at the Sivananda Yoga Center with Swami Adhyatmanada. This is not a western yoga teacher training held in India but a Traditional Yoga Training for people that live in India. It is quite possible I will be the only American attending. To say I am excited, nervous and completely unsure what I am in for is an understatement. It has taken me 4 months to prepare and I am a week away from beginning this journey and I feel equal parts ready and equal parts unsure. It feels like it has been a journey already! I look forward to sharing my adventure with you.
