My Journey with Yoga One and Baptiste Yoga
My first yoga class was one-on-one in 2008. I was overweight, out-of-shape, depressed, and had some serious addiction issues to food. From that first class, I knew I’d stumbled on something different, but I had no idea how profound this journey would become. I’m continually amazed by how a rubber mat and an open mind can do so much. Through the unconditional support and guidance of fellow students, teachers and the yoga community, I’ve broken through mental and emotional boundaries and transformed my physical body.
On September 11, 2013, I had a near-fatal heart attack and spent two nights in ICU, Within hours of being released, I was back at Yoga One to practice. Yoga has taught me that failures and setbacks are part of the adventure to living a full life, and to truly grow takes courage no matter what age. To succeed we need the courage to get back up.
The practice, teaching and assisting of yoga is a beneficial factor in the quality of communication I have in all areas of my life. I am delighted to be working in this field of growth and expression with such a wonderful family of students, assistants, and teachers. I am committed to reciprocating the gifts I’ve received by sharing and leading others in their own journey.
I am enough.
