How many time have you heard, ”Your hamstrings and hips are really tight... You should do yoga.” That is how it all began… My “Why Yoga”? When I started practicing, I didn’t realize how much more there was for me to find within this beautiful flow.
When I was in high school I purchased my first Denise Austin yoga video. I thought it was great! A way to stretch out and have an “off” day, because there was NO way yoga was tough enough to be called a workout. That belief continued until I entered a class at The Woods Yoga Studio in Lincoln, RI. There I really learned about my body and mind. I learned how to flow, activate muscles and lift up and out of my joints to find length, strength and flexibility. After class I had a “yoga glow” feeling happy, calm and tall (I’m 5’3”). I realized that yoga was my time. A time to be out of my brain and present, focusing only on the movement I am creating now. With time and consistency of practice, old pains went away, my mobility improved, I could squat deeper and without hip pain. I was hooked and wanted to share this practice with others. I wanted to help them find the same symptom relief and calm I have experienced, so I entered a Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga inspired teacher training and continued my “Why Yoga”. My “Why Yoga” has changed and continues to develop as I grow and practice my flow. I hope you join me on this journey.
