The Power of Being Magnetic: How I Teach Yoga

“In a plain piece of metal, all the molecules are in chaos facing every which way. A magnet is a similar piece of metal in which all the molecules are perfectly aligned – the north poles facing one way, and the south poles facing in the opposite direction. Because of this alignment, the magnet gains the power to attract and hold other objects. If you stroke the ordinary metal and the magnet together in one direction only, the magnet will align all the molecules in the plain metal with itself, causing a second magnet to emerge. The power to attract and hold has been transmitted from one to the other, while amazingly enough the initial magnet retains its full strength. As we align our energies this way through regulating our breath we maintain calm through the ordinary emotional rollercoaster rides we encounter each day. We find that when we are upset, everything around us reflects the same disturbance, as if it is somehow contagious. When tranquility prevails, it magnetizes everything with the same sense of calmness.”


Story from The Secret Power Of Yoga.


I teach yoga to be a magnet for all my students. I pass on to them what has been shared with me by my teachers, who served as my magnet. I want all that come to my classes to feel the power they hold within themselves to attract their best life ever. We accomplish this by organizing our breath and thoughts in a way that designs the future that serves our truest potential. In my classes you do NOT hide from who you really are: your untapped strength, courage and vision for your life. I don’t teach only a physically challenging class I teach a mentally and emotionally challenging happiness coaching experience.

Is this for everyone? No, not everyone is ready. Those are not my students. You are my student if something I say resonates with your most authentic self from my most authentic self. And you leave inspired to gain back your power to do good in this world, to live kindly, to be your most extraordinary on even the most ordinary days.

“What is a teacher? I’ll tell you: it isn’t someone who teaches something, but someone who inspires the student to give of her best in order to discover what she already knows.” – Paulo Coelho

This is the heart of why I teach yoga. My job description is to live my practice creating infinite love and gratitude. This is what makes me a strong magnet and inspires my students to become magnets themselves. I believe in the potential of each person to discover what they already know.

Love yourself, love your day, love your life!
