It’s a common question, but I give what some may think of as an unusual answer. That’s because where I was born or grew up is not who I am. It is simply a place and period of time in the past. What matters more to me is where I AM NOW in my journey of life. So whenever someone asks me, “where are you from”, I think of it more like they are asking me, “where are you coming from”. Then I answer, “I’m from Yoga — the United State of Being.” Yoga has no borders, no politics, no constraints. It is a “state” with a divine nature that has infinite reach, total freedom, and endless possibilities. Its “constitution” consists of kindness, well-being, movement, breath, self-discipline, directed focus, reflection, and the experience of selflessness. Anyone and everyone is welcome to reside here. It’s a place where as soon as you move in, you’ll feel “right at home”.

    NOW is our reality. And yoga is our mindfulness. Thanks for your post. I read it while having morning tea “with you” in spirit.

      Hi Kathleen,
      You’re right, NOW is all we have. And yoga is my everyday life! Thanks so much for reading and sharing. I’m responding while having my morning tea, too. I’m with you in spirit always!

    Hi Kristina,
    Love your post. Where am I from? I was born far from my parents’ home, just because my mom wanted to deliver near her mom. Sort of coming from love and connection, I think. Yoga means love and connection to me, and the truth is I started my journey because I saw you posting your poses, and I saw joy, love and creativity.
    I am drinking “matecito” while I type my answer.

      Hellooooo Debbie!
      Thanks so much for your lovely comments. Indeed, yoga is all about love and connection. I LOVE the fact that the Universe has CONNECTED us in so many ways — through teaching, the sisterhood, and now YOGA! There’s no doubt that it was meant to be. I wish I could join you in that cup of “matecito”, but for now it will have to be a cup of “matcha”. 😉
