Throughout my life, there have been several moments when I’ve felt compelled to make bold, risky, and — from an outside perspective, perhaps, wacky — choices. Somehow, in each of these situations I knew that any discomfort and challenge would pay off twofold if I could just suck it up and push myself. And so, I went to film school. And then I moved to London all by myself with no job or place to live. And later I traveled and lived in Maine, Texas, and New York City — still following this crazy feeling inside. It was that same “I don’t know why but I just have to” calling that convinced me to start building Yogatropic, and the exact same feeling that brought me to yoga teacher training only a few months later.
Retrospect is fantastic, because now I can see a pattern: following my heart has led me on the most amazing and soul-shaping adventures of my life! The “crazy voice” that led me to leap — even when the landing gear wasn’t deployed — was the voice of my deeper Self, or intuition, or God, depending on what you like to call it. And there’s something truly freeing and exhilarating about the idea of always having the right answer, always knowing the right direction, somewhere inside — even if you can’t see the full picture yet.
So with that sense of fearlessness, a little bit of self-reassurance, and a whole lot of hard work, I’m finally launching two-and-a-half years of dreaming into the world with Yogatropic, a tiny seed that I hope will grow into my blooming, towering contribution to make this world a better place. No matter what, I’m certainly ready for the ride!
