Yoga Adventure: How my teacher Kelda Anderson laughs at her ego self & teaches her baby birds how to fly. Episode #56

In western culture we so often are focused on the individual. Taking care of ourselves and then our family and friends. Travelling the world I was always aware of how so many other countries and cultures were entrenched in the philosophy of union and a tribe mentality. Even when it comes to the Eastern practice of Yoga we somehow manage to separate the practice from the practitioner. We turn the union into a physical and material trend. How to we learn to adopt a union with ourselves, our bodies and our minds?

I will never forget the first time I tried Yoga. I was so nervous and really thought I would not fit in. My good friend Karen and I grabbed our coffees and walked into the studio and from that moment on I was hooked.

Yoga came in and out of my life, a sporadic practice that definitely did not incorporate my spiritual self into the mix, well not intentionally anyway. Even though I was never an athletic person and I hated going to the gym, something about Yoga called me to want to teach. So for my 40th year in this world I gave myself that treat and enrolled in my teacher training with Kelda Anderson at Love Life Hot Yoga. It was the best gift I could ever given myself.

Kelda Anderson was exactly what I needed in my life as a teacher. I had already gone through so many spiritual phases that I was ready for teacher that didn’t take themselves too seriously. Someone who knew how to make fun of themselves, still respected and loved spirituality but in a way that was grounded and fun.
