Meet Ernie Santoro our featured student spotlight!
Ernie is a active and cheerful yogi that represents All That Matters well!
When did you start yoga and what attracted you to the practice: My wife began about 6 years ago and I noticed an
improvement in her strength, flexibility and balance; as well as an enhanced sense of inner peace. Hence, I wanted to experience those same benefits.
What is your favorite style of yoga: Yoga/Pilates, it combines the best of both worlds. Yoga-breathing, relaxation.
What other activities do you enjoy: I also enjoy Tai Chi,
gardening, biking, special times with family and friends.
Favorite sound: Baby’s laughter and songbirds signing!
Least favorite sound: Blaring car horns.
Favorite meal: Freshly picked home-grown veggies over wheat pasta!
What keeps you doing yoga: I keep doing yoga because I enjoy the daily benefit of enhanced physical vitality and balance to both the body and the mind. Being “on the mat” provides a peace of mind beyond anything I’ve experienced.
Advice to beginners: Approach the practice with an open mind and heart and one will begin to experience greater flexibility, strength, and peace of mind. Remember that everyone’s abilities are different, and it’s not a competition! As one of my favorite teachers said: “The postures all around the room should look different” What do you like most about All That Matters: The new parking lot:) ATM has a great atmosphere to practice yoga and to enjoy the benefits of working with a fantastic group of teachers and staff that are fully focused on teaching the yogic lifestyle.
Any other words of wisdom? New parking lot is small...so get there early!:) We are all on this journey together and we know it is the journey and not the destination that counts. Let yoga lighten your load as you travel on this journey.
