There are many times in a person’s life where they come to a fork in the road and the chosen path transforms them in ways that were before unimaginable. Shortly after I began my yoga practice three years ago I experienced such a metamorphosis.
Since high school I was always interested in physical fitness. For many years bodybuilding and powerlifting were my forms of exercise, but life was out of balance. Being a workaholic and stressed out was taking it’s toll physically and mentally. One day a serious back injury left me without a way to release the tension in my life. Enter yoga.
Perspectives changed; relationships with friends and family became more important, I took time to appreciate life instead of anticipating the future. My body became more flexible and my mind came along for the ride.
In a yoga practice I look for a guide who can ground my spirit yet challenge me physically; all the while still holding space to be safe. This is what I hope to offer everyone that comes to one of my classes.
