I love the fact that Yoga accepts anyone and everyone exactly as they are. Anyone can do yoga. I previously (before yoga) thought that yoga wasn’t for fat girls. I’ve since found out that idea is total b.s.!

Finding Hope... Accidentally

I came to my practice almost by accident. I was in the middle of a pretty rough patch; sleeping on a friends couch, staying out too late, unemployed, and recently diagnosed with a chronic illness. My friend suggested trying a hot yoga class, so we went and it was terrible, but I kept going. It didn’t fix any of my problems but my perspective shifted. After awhile, friends started asking my advice on yoga things, and I realized every teacher I had come across was more than willing to help in whatever way they could. I decided I wanted to be able to contribute just like they could, so I signed up for my first teacher training and the rest is history. 

Attraction to the Understated

I’m attracted to the aspects of yoga that are not obvious to most and take a keen observation: subtle energies, ayurveda, pranayama, and meditation. I don’t have my focus all figured out, but I’m enjoying the continuous learning in this direction.
