Like many, I attempted yoga and frustration got the best of me. flexibility never came easy and I threw in the towel on many occasions. I can pin it to a specific class when yoga became more than physical, when it shifted to a mind-altering, spiritual experience. For the first time in years, I felt alive, and I fell in love. My inflexibility was not an issue. This was the beginning of my self-discovery. This was the end of my anxiety. I chose to leave my well-paying, room for growth, supportive career to do something that allows me to impact my community as well as myself. I am still, and always will be a student of the practice. Yoga inspires me everyday and there is nothing I want more than to share it with people around me. Be inspired and get to know your true self.
