My journey with yoga started 14 years ago and over half of this time has been with Ketna Shah as my teacher. My practice began as a physical practice and it has developed (with Ketna’s guidance) into both a physical and spiritual practice.
My path to the Divine Spirit has been through the awareness of breath which is emphasized in Ketna’s classes. The practice is profound in its simplicity. Once you connect your breath with your movements, “Breath Yoga” becomes a moving meditation. This has changed my life as Ketna’s influence and encouragement has led me to the next step in my yoga journey. This is called Kriya Yoga.
Yoga has enhanced my life as I have become more aware of the Divine Spirit through conscious breathing which has helped illuminate my path to God.
A yoga teacher once told me that the practice of yoga is like peeling the layers of an onion. The more you peel away, the more you realize you don’t know. The journey of yoga is infinite. God blessed me when Ketna Shah entered my life.
