Susan Schectar, founder of Karma Good Yoga -
What started as a gym class to mix it up, became a gateway to profound change.
What you do on the mat you do in life, they say.
Learning to take chances, I became a yoga teacher at 60. Nothing changes if you don't change.
Focused movement put me in that meditative state I couldn't get to before. Creating a calm inner peace, allowing space for more creativity and joy in all areas of life.
Listening to my body, "playing to the edge” in yoga parlance or when to push and when to pull back, allowed me to regain full function of my knee after an injury without surgery.
Then realizing that we are all part of a larger community taught me how to be more compassionate toward others and myself.
Whether you're on a personal journey or out to change the world, yoga can help.
In my classes we learn together how to use focus and presence to empower ourselves and give back to each other.
