I started practicing yoga when I came down with what I call, “The Corporate Common Cold,” consisting of stress, anxiety, and depression. Yoga forced me to still my mind, and come face to face with the walls that I had built up over the years. I have always been the type of person with a packed schedule, sitting down and being quiet wasn’t really on my to do list. To be frank stillness was the scariest thing for me, now it’s a daily routine that I crave.
Yoga allowed me to tear down my walls, and build my broken soul back into fighting shape. For once, I was working out to feel good instead of looking good (those new muscles were nice though). My perspective changed, and my ability to love others and (finally) myself grew exponentially. I felt like I finally woke up from a deep sleep, and was ready to live my life for the purpose I was created for.
When I’m not at the studio, I like reading up on the latest scientific research about our bodies, and how Eastern medicine correlates with modern day science. My aim is to serve up knowledge, a slice of humor, and a whole lot of soul in my classes. It’s my calling to expose my students to the connection, strength, and love that can be found in a yoga practice.
I guarantee you are so much stronger than you give yourself credit for. Let’s find that strength together.
