For a deeper understanding – Pam’s recommended reading list
These great 'rishi's
The yogi's knew that their practice was more than a system of exercise.
I’ve lost count of how many yoga classes I’ve taught in the last 30 years – each one is a unique exchange of prana (energy) between teacher and student.
Some students have taken my regularly scheduled classes and private sessions for several years with visible change. They have released their feet, knees, hips, shoulders, opened the spine, their voice, and most importantly their minds to this ancient healing art called yoga. I’ve witnessed the veritable surgical scalpel of the breath became the ultimate tool that inspires and heals them. My students confide in me with their stories of life, death, marriage, divorce and illnesses but it does not really matter the circumstance – I’ve come to understand that yoga has an avenue of wellness to fit any situation or need.
The real truth is that they are my teacher. It’s been quite phenomenal.
These days I teach mostly one-on-one classes and comprehensive modules where the application of the teaching is re-enforced on a personal level, this is where the most remarkable effects of yoga are witnessed. It is with passion and service that I share this knowledge. I give gratitude to my teachers, my students, and my extensive yoga library.
