Let me start by saying I started practicing and studying yoga in the early 2000s, and tomorrow is the first day of my teaching a yoga class.
I feel I am on a path of growth as a Dominant Woman, hopefully at some point also as a sub (I'm a switch!), and also as a yoga practitioner. Having recently met a submissive man who is inspiring my Dominance to come out and play in a major way, I am now yearning to sub again as I did many years ago, but rarely finding the Dominant Man to truly inspire this brat to Obey and Serve. And teaching always improves one's practice or mastery of a craft, so my yoga is growing as well. I think there's a connection between all three of these things, so being here with all you kinksters who also practice yoga seems perfect!
I practice yoga because it helps me connect to my body and experience the sacred through the physical.
I was reared fundamentalist christian and then betrayed at a very early age by a close family member with sexual and physical abuse, so these two things put me at odds with my body.
I am now drawn to spiritual practices that honor the body as sacred, and yoga (along with tantra and tao), help me a lot with that.
I am so grateful for what I've learned in BDSM, the community and warmth I've found here among people who are true to themselves and passionate about their authenticity.
Yoga helps me get in my body so I can get more out of life. That's why I practice yoga. :)
