Now, at 62, yoga has helped me to break free from the limiting social construct of age, especially as a woman. My life experience is held in my body, and all 62 years have resulted in strength reflected in my muscles and my generosity, beauty in wrinkles that reflect my perseverance and dedication, and power in the ability to claim it all as my own.

Yoga is a tool for growth, equality, and change. There is nothing more important than that at this point in time. With the present fight for racial and gender equality yoga is a tool for social justice, for those who have not had a voice to begin to be heard, and for the forward progression of our society towards true and lasting equality.

Yoga is so much more than just the physical poses. There are 8 limbs of Yoga, and Asana is just one. The philosophy behind Yoga teaches us that we can literally change the world if we understand how it works. Its so much about ourselves and how everything is a reflection of us. And if that’s true, then why wouldn’t we love our reflections. The Beatles had it right when they said “All you need is Love”.
