I was first introduced to meditation at 12 years old and then yoga in my late teens. They’ve both been a part of my life ever since and have influenced me in more ways than I can explain.

When I first began to practice it was with curiosity, then over time I practiced with dedication, and now after 30+ years I practice with a sense an increasing sense of ease.

I no longer measure my practice by poses I can hold or how few thoughts I have during my meditation, but instead I practice based on my intuition, listening to my body and breath for guidance to create space and balance in my life.

Blah! Cheesy I know, but it’s true. 🙂

One of the the greatest inspirations for my practice came while watching my children as babies. They would naturally move into positions that we’d call pigeon, or bow, or… you guessed it… child’s pose. Or they’d simply sit and “be”, with no agenda or goal. It was then I realized just how natural and intuitive yoga and mindfulness can and should be. We simply need to be quiet and listen so our body and breath can remind us not what to do, but how to “be”

          Jordan was introduced to yoga through a fellow Townie in an impromptu class at a previous job. What started as a one-off experience for Jordan turned into a regular practice that amplifies and supports his other adventurous activities! Has yoga changed since you started practicing?

        • Townie Profile – Kate

          Why did you start doing yoga? My doctor suggested that I practice yoga because of work related stress. I very quickly knew it was exactly what I needed – the perfect balance between physical exertion and emotional/mental benefits! Has it changed since you started practicing? I may have come for…
