Spirituality does not have to mean giving everything up, running to the mountains, sitting in the lotus position, and chanting ‘Om'.
Although I respect all ancient teachings and practices, I believe that rather than separating your spiritual practice from everyday life, we should learn to take these teachings and use them when we're dealing with family, friends, partners or even running a business.
In my classes, trainings, and seminars, I emphasize that yoga and meditation are metaphors for everyday life and can help when dealing with all of life's stresses. Rather than internalizing these stresses and allowing them to affect you physically or mentally, we can view them as challenges to overcome.
The underlining message in all of my work is that although life can be busy and intense, developing a sense of humor about it is vital on the journey to reaching our full potential.
