I started my yoga journey back in 2013. At first, I didn't truly value the practice of yoga. I found it difficult and I just wanted to get to the part where I could be super flexible. I had an on and off relationship with it for a while before I decided to become a yoga instructor. I decided to teach because I saw the mind, body, and spiritual benefits in my own life and wanted to help others discover those benefits. When I started practicing, I was only driven by external results and wanted to see flexibility quickly. Now, I am someone who's body is more aligned, I have better posture, and my body is stronger. I have developed a regularly practice of meditation to accompany my practice. I laugh when I stumble, I am less inclined to react quickly, or take life too seriously. This shift didn't happen over night, but it is completely possible through the regular practice of yoga.
I have so much gratitude for this practice. To honor its rich history that originated in Northern India 5000+ years ago, I constantly remind myself to stay mindful and continue to focus on improving alignment in the mind, body, and soul. Yoga gives us the tools to enhance our awareness for how we live, who we are, and how we treat ourselves and others.
