Who is Ena?
In the south, where I was raised, faith and prayer are the fabric of daily life. My grandfather was a Pentacostal tent revival minister in Alabama. He and my part-Cherokee grandmother spoke in tongues and adhered to strong beliefs. That passion has kept me spiritually curious my entire life. Yoga has impacted me deeply for its shared, underlying message: practice, and the feeling of deep connection will arise. It is always there.
I have been a student of the arts since childhood. My professional life has included, acting, writing, painting and designing. In 1997, I discovered yoga while pregnant with my son. The esoteric, yet accessible, practices fed my creativity. Where creative pursuits are fulfilling, the dogged perfectionistic approach I had been using was not. Yoga soothed me. Friends and family commented on the shifts that they saw.
Through yoga, patterns reveal themselves and feedback comes from within. A yoga therapist simply meets those insights with practices that guide you deeper into your own innate peace and clarity. Whether through poses, breathing, meditation, philosophy or psycho-spiritual discussion, students feel more resilient and peaceful in their lives. Daily life has potency. Yoga shows us how to feel it.
