When I'm not at the studio, you can find me: When I’m not at the studio I’m with my family. I support my hubby and my kids in their passions -- mostly all related to soccer. It’s not cliche to say I’m a soccer mom, although I’m still trying to learn what in the heck “offside” means. I get joy watching my kids play.
If it’s a free weekend off the soccer fields I’m probably taking a bath, reading, cooking or connecting with friends.
My journey with Yoga One and Baptiste Yoga
I took my first class at Yoga One in 2009 about a year after having my first child. My oldest son was at his first week of “wee” school (he was barely 1) and I was ready for a break. I was in a fog of new motherhood, unconnected to my body, anxious and overwhelmed. My husband gently (ok shoved me) out the door to yoga. I’m grateful he knew what I needed even when I didn’t.
I took class and sweat my ass off. I called my husband to share my near death experience. He assumed I had hated it, being a person who doesn’t generally enjoy sweating my ass off. I loved it.
I’ve been loving it since that day in 2008. What got me that day on my mat was my connection to my body and the personal power I felt when I left that room. I had the courage and confidence to rediscover me. My mat was a place for me, a time away from kids.
I AM LOVE
