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”.
