One of my favorite yoga books is Light on Life by BKS Iyengar.
My Yoga experience includes… My first time doing yoga was in a small studio in Brooklyn circa 2008. I was that person who thought they were too inflexible to do yoga. My sister loves reminding me how I exclaimed to her after class, “my body just isn’t made to move that way!” Here I am 6 years later, moving that way and teaching others to do the same. Being in competitive sports my entire life left me inflexible and plagued with injuries – so for me, finding yoga felt like coming home. It offered the physical and mental challenge I loved about competitive sports but nurtured and healed me all at the same time.
I completed a 200-Hour Yoga Alliance Approved Teacher Training program with Cori Martinez in March of 2014 and have since dived head first into teaching. Being able to share the gift of yoga with others has been one of the greatest blessings in my life! I teach yoga because I want students to be in the best possible position mentally, physically and spiritually when life presents its inevitable ups and downs, allowing them to have the greatest possible positive effect on themselves, others and ultimately, the world.
