This Amy Beausang kid is my favorite yoga teacher in Manhattan Beach, California. Amy used to teach at the nightclub known as Equinox Gym on Rosecrans Blvd. Great gym, excellent teachers, typical elitist “locals only” clientele. Amy Beausang had live music once a month or so in her classes. I just like her energy and her moves.
Aimee also used to teach at the big box Equinox on Rosecrans. Aimee Donahue was my introduction to Kundalini yoga. I got more kundalini yoga out of Aimee than I did in five months at Yoga West LA in Beverly Hills. I still use things that I learned from this girl like keeping my feet flat and flexing my toes upward.
The only thing better than Manhattan Beach is Hermosa Beach and that’s where you’ll find Josie Kramer the “Laughing Yoga Teacher.” Lyfe Yoga on Pacific Coast Highway at Pier Avenue has a typical “local women only” vibe and the owner is either a closet case or some kind of flaming yoga queen but Josie is well worth it. Josie is also a nutritionist who pushed me into proper yoga breathing. It is not real yoga unless you are breathing with the movement. One breath, one movement. By setting my intention to breath exactly like Josie said, my breath was healed and my soul was healed. Heal your breath heal your mind.
End of the Year
These three yoga teachers gave me the tools to develop my sadhana. My personal yoga practice is making me taller. My spine is lengthening with my breathing. Josie Kramer said that you know you are into yoga when you get off on just hanging out in down dog. These days my down dog has both heels flat on my yoga mat and that feels blissful. My lower back spinal curvature feels blissful even in mountain pose and now I also get the same blissful lower back curvature feeling in cat/cow.
Both of my heels touch my yoga mat in down dog again! I am at union with the universe as a result of my personal yoga and mediation practice. It takes a long time to become one with God. The only God you are ever going to find is within your own consciousness but it takes a long time to get there. I can barely watch television because of my meditative state of consciousness.
