as a Yogini

After reinventing myself in the wake of the relationship apocalypse (the winter of 2006 – everyone around me – including me – was splitting up…it was eerie) I found a way to train my body and mind on my own terms – YOGA. I began the journey with Bikram Hot Yoga classes.

In the summer of 2008, I ventured out of the Bikram world into a more spiritual form of yoga, exploring Kundalini, Astanga, and Moksha Yoga. Remaining open minded, and beginner minded, I started reading books about spirituality and Yoga Philosophy. I believe Yoga has begun to change my world in a drastic, positive way that is unprecedented and overwhelmingly empowering.

I have only scratched the surface, and I can’t wait to discover more. I leave almost every class with a grin, and the chronic pain in my back from my dance injury is gone. The meditation aspect of yoga has given me the discipline to recognize when I am falling back into old patterns, as well as the tools to draw myself out of anxiety and obsession. I truly believe that yoga (along with holistic food choices) will be a key factor in keeping my mind, body, and spirit working optimally.

Heartfelt thanks to all the teachers who have guided me on my journey so far, it is you who made it possible. NAMASTE!
