All that aside, Cypresse believes in the great gift of Yoga for anyone who is willing to walk its path. She has seen great healing, both out of imbalance, as well as into acceptance and equanimity in the face of those imbalances.
Each being has a starting point and a profound opportunity on the path of Yoga. As each of us enters the stream, we find ourselves in a place just right for our learning. Beautifully, Yoga will never offer us anything we aren't ready for, but certain teachers will. That is why Cypresse has such a focus on alignment, stability and balance (poses, breath, meditations, etc.) to be sure that each individual has a place to feel safe and welcome to explore her or his own breath, body, and path. Suggestions, modifications and amplifications help participants to find themselves in a place just right. She describes her teaching intention as “.” Facilitator and practitioner work together in learning trust of Self and experiencing each's complimentary abilities. Once one learns to trust the inner voice, time together flourishes with great energy and smoothness; a quality that begins to flood off the mat and into one’s life.
