Trusting the voice within

After spending over a decade together in Canada, my wife told me she felt a little homesick and wanted to get closer to her family again. The idea of relocating near to our childrens’ grandparents would also give them some precious childhood memories. I am always up for an adventure, so I agreed to move our family to Israel in the fall on 2013.

It was a liberating experience to get rid of all our non essential items and to begin a fresh new start. After our arrival I wondered what kind of work I could do to keep supporting my loved ones and at the same time following my passion teaching yoga.

In a foreign country where one does not speak the local language, I braced for the worst. The questions that I asked myself were would there be a communication barrier in the style of my classes, and how would my style be received? I also, wondered if I would find enough classes to guide on a full time basis.

It was a great lesson in trust that proved to me that when we are moved from the whispers of the heart, everything falls into place. Our inner guidance spoke and we began to take actions to set the wheels in motion.

The yoga community accepted me with open arms, I found plenty of opportunities to share my teachings and I feel blessed to have undergone this experience

What does your heart murmur to you? Your ego enjoys to doubt, to question and to silence your inner voice but I believe we are here on this planet to act upon it.
