My name is Laruga. I think it's pretty obvious I have a passion for Ashtanga yoga. Above all, I guess you can say, I'm a truth seeker. Always have been, probably always will be. Precocious as a child, I have nourished my curiosity into adulthood. A constant gnawing from the inside, somehow I've always known there was more to life than meets the eye.
I've been a practitioner of yoga for over 18 years, including 15 years of daily Ashtanga yoga practice, in the tradition of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. I'm an Authorized Level 2 Teacher in the lineage, and truly enjoy nurturing a space for students to grow and explore the self-reflective method of Ashtanga yoga. I feel sincerely blessed to have found the practice, or better said, that it had found me. To arrive on my mat regularly, essentially starting over from the beginning, one breath at a time, allowing each cell of my body to become fully alive, and hopefully my innate wisdom awakened, has nourished every layer of my existence.
Thank you for being on this journey with me! Through this blog I hope to share with you some of my thoughts, humors, experiences and insights along the way. Please, be in touch.
