Like all good things in life, yoga found me when I most needed it. My relationship with yoga be-gan during a deeply tumultuous time nearly 15 years ago – a time where my soul was calling out for certainty, stability, and most importantly, a source of self-confidence that I could truly call my own. Since those early days, yoga has …

After just a few visits to the studio, I realized …

…As cliché as it may sound, for me yoga truly is about the mind/body connection. When I roll out my mat it is my safe space to be totally honest with myself; to acknowledge all of me—the good, the bad, the eccentric, and the totally screwed up. My yoga practice has helped (more like forced) me to get real with …
