Colleen Saidman
As I bring you the last woman of this short series, Inspiring Women, I am aware that writing about each of these women has given me renewed fuel and drive, and even more inspiration. Especially in writing about Colleen, a friend and one of my teachers, she inspires me with her work, knowledge and life path.
While I was preparing to write this weeks post I realized I have been moving way to fast, taking on too much and not enjoying myself. While watching her interviews to brush up on anything I might not know about Colleen, I hear her say...
Yoga teacher Colleen Saidman is an amazing advocate and example of celebrating thefeminine, living healthy and having over all well-being. Being a constant student makes the best teacher in my opinion, not one to get stuck in her ways, Colleen has an insatiable appetite for knowledge and is always looking for new information to further her own practice as well as ours whether it be on the mat or in life.
Letting go of Ego, is our life's work in her opinion and in that work you realize that you cannot be to attached to being right or knowing it all, it is essential to be open to new information and to not be dogmatic about anything. Rigidity is the opposite of yoga.
Colleen lives her work and openly shares her struggles of being human and the daily work it takes to bring herself back to center.
Her love affair with yoga began in the late 80's and she has walked it's path ever since. Colleen has taken her knowledge of yoga and intertwined it with her passion for health and the importance of getting " out of the mind" and in to the body.
Colleen's passion for healthcare started when she worked at a geriatric center at the age of 16 and was deepened when she worked alongside Mother Theresa at the Home of the Destitute and Dying in Calcutta, India.
Colleen now co-chairs and had a hand in creating the Urban Zen Foundation's Health and Wellness Initiative,founded by Donna Karen.
Colleen along with her husband Rodney Yee lead a program that trains practitioners in alternative methods to treat patients, called Urban Zen Integrative Therapy.
Again by Colleen's living example, I am taught about humility, work ethic, the importance of using your voice and stepping into the role of teacher and service.
Thank you Colleen!
