how do you take what you learn on the mat into your life and work off the mat?

As a practitioner that has limboed between student and teacher, the lesson that sticks with me is one of constant presence in the face of inevitable change. In a city as busy as NYC, it’s easy to get flustered and thrown off course when you try and stick to a regimented routine. Instead, I work on rolling with the punches and finding equal grounding and lightness in unforeseen situations.
