On September 9, I went to the Brookline Booksmith to see my mentor Seane Corn, who was promoting her new book, “Revolution of the Soul.”  It is a memoir of her journey through yoga.  Seane is a world-renowned yoga teacher and activist. The purpose of her book is to help people understand theirtrue selves and to see love and truth everywhere through the practice of yoga.  She shared her personal story of healing and transformation to finding her purpose.  Seane shared how she wrote this book from her heart and soul.

I have known Seane for over fifteen years.  I came into contact with yoga at a time I was feeling lost and disconnected.  Her DVDs were perfect for me because she put emphasis on proper alignment and using props to flow through the poses.

Over the years, I have learned about Seane’s work with organizations such as Off the Mat Into the World.  She inspired me to find my purpose, which is my passion for writing.  Through writing, I have hopefully inspired and helped people with disabilities.

After moving to Massachusetts, I was given the opportunity to meet Seane in person at Kripalu, where our bond grew stronger through yoga and many in-depth discussions.  I was also given the opportunity to go to Omega for her Off the Mat Into the World Leadership Training, where I was empowered to become a chair yoga teacher.  We have remained friends through social media and workshops.

Today, we are kindred spirits, sharing our love of yoga through teaching and practicing while living our purpose of helping and inspiring many people.
