Representin’ Austin, Texas Yoga this month in Mantra, Yoga + Health Magazine

Mantra Mag – is out on newsstands NOW.  Zoe Mantarakis and I – along with Yoga Illumined graduates Talitha Wallick and Brian Henderson were asked by Mantra, Yoga & Health magazine what our wishes were for yoga teachers.  Here’s what we said:

Talitha Wallick:

I wish yoga teachers would be more playful.  This is the only life we have.  Let’s make the most of it – on and off your mat.  Let’s embrace and practice while having fun!  It can be as simple as smiling at your students, playing an instrument while teaching, making a joke, laughing at your self, or simply just being YOU.

Talitha teaches a wonderful $5 Vinyasa yoga class at Amala Foundation’s Yoga Sanctuary on Wednesdays from 1:30-2:30.  Join her!

Brian Henderson:

I wish Yoga teachers would focus on teaching their students more and less on their ego’s needs.

Brian teaches a Focused Hatha Flow class at Your Yoga on Fridays at noon.  Join him!

Zoe Mantarakis:

My first impulse is to answer that I don’t wish anything on others.  We all do our best.  I wish only for each living creature to move toward what it loves.  Blades of grass grow toward the sun.  Kittens in a litter cuddle close to their mama.  May each of us, yoga teachers included, live closer to LOVE.

You can find Zoe spreading the love through Yoga throughout Austin, Texas, conferences and retreats worldwide.  Purchase some of her amazing yoga sequences on The Yoga Recipe and join us for our Yoga Illumined Life and Yoga Teacher Training programs.

Sumukhi (Kristina Lanuza, c’est moi)

I wish yoga teachers would chant the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali (let me in add, in Sanskrit), learn more mantra, study Sanskrit and Yogic Scriptures, visit Ashrams, teach more non-bendy people Hatha Yoga, practice Ayurveda, sing more kirtan, honor the Guru within, dive into Nadam: blissful, musical silence, meditate, see the yoga in everything and wish for things to be just as they are.

May all wishes come true!  Join me in the Akasha and at my Yoga and music and teacher training offerings and then some.  And at the financial institution where I work in advertising, etcetera.  I-AM that I-Am that I-am.
