Several years ago, I realized that my “dream job” was making me miserable. My favorite part of the day was attending a yoga class before or after work. I decided to quit my job and complete my first yoga teacher training at the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health. That training changed my life.
I had been practicing yoga for over ten years, but it wasn’t until I deeply dived into the practice that I understood how it transcended physical postures and affected mental, spiritual, and emotional wellbeing. Yoga taught me about the power of authenticity, connection, music, and movement. I began to relate to the world around me in a completely different way – I became confident in my own identity (even when my path diverged from societal expectations), opened myself to vulnerability and the sense of belonging it provided, and found the answers to my search for joy in moving, dancing, singing, hugging, and connecting with other beings.
Like everything worth achieving in life, yoga takes practice and dedication. Yoga took me to Southeast Asia where I traveled for a year with only a carry-on suitcase. It took me to Bali, Indonesia where I lived and breathed yoga. I was able to reflect on the growth I had achieved as a teacher while continuing to deepen my personal practice.
Now I share my love for yoga, dance, and movement with everyone I meet. We all deserve to take care of our bodies and minds every single day.
