Hi Sindy. Thank you so much.
Oh my God. It’s a pleasure to have you in my show and let’s start asking you this question. What’s your healing superpower?
Teaching yoga, but not just the yoga poses. Teaching yoga as a philosophy, as a way of life, as a way to … as you said, cultivate self-worth and your own inner shine.
Oh. Love it. Will you please take us back to your early years and name one memorable life lesson that is useful for you today in this healing process.
Absolutely. I’m not going to take us all the way back to childhood, but I’m in my mid-40s now. I’ll take us back to my mid-20s and I married my first husband who happened to be my law school sweetheart. I think so much of what led me to that marriage was … I hate to use this word, but inertia. I wasn’t making skillful choices based on my heart’s truest desires. I was doing what I thought I should do based on influences from the external world. I was at the age I thought I should get married and we had all the right credentials on paper and et cetera. So, I think I was more guided by the external world than my own interior landscape.
And the couple short years later, we amicably split up and now I’m married to the man of my dreams and we have a daughter and I think that through that process, I’ve learned how to be more guided by myself than by what’s around me.
I’ve really appreciate and I believe that is a very useful key in life when you go through hard situations, but you can see the life lesson. I think that’s the piece of salt missing in our lives. When we can go and see the life lesson behind the pain, behind the struggle, is where we can create a masterpiece. Thank you so much Sin for sharing that with us.
Was there a burning bush … and according to what you just said, I think there was a burning bush moment that made your heart desire changing your path in life?
Well. Boy, I feel like I had several of those burning bush moments. One was I remember just having this calm clarity come over me, realizing that I would be happy and okay on my own much more so than in an unsatisfying relationship. And there was also the moment when I really fell in love with the yoga practice, which is probably more relevant for our conversation this afternoon. But I remember that moment where it occurred to me or I realized that yoga was so much more than just moving in a fun exercise kind of way on my yoga mat.
I was thinking just because I love what you said. What is the meaning of a yoga mat for you and I didn’t have this question here, but what does it represent in your life?
Well, the yoga mat is a physical mat when you unroll in a yoga class and it’s where you go into your practice. And for me, it really does represent a coming home to myself. So, I think it sort of mirrors what I was saying about my first marriage which is as I’ve gotten older and further along my own spiritual journey, learning to direct my focus inward while still being in the world, but not guided by external expectations or societal demands.
The mat is where … It represents coming home to myself. I love that, Sindy. Thank you so much.
