How did Yoga come into your life?Yoga came into my life my sophomore year in college. I had always wanted to try a class; so through my University I took a weekend long class which included intro to poses, intro to breath, and silent interaction.

What was your first class like?
The first class I took made me ask myself "why doesn't everyone do this?" It was physically and emotionally relaxing; eye opening.
What brought you back to the second class?
The feeling of how yoga made me feel strong, I loved how it made me stand up a little straighter with ease. I also loved how my mind could relax.

 



The perfect way to begin your week; a slow and steady stream of postures that builds up your energy and steadies your mind for the week ahead.
