I came to yoga recently, in part looking for low impact fitness that would accommodate some foot joint pain and in part to try something new.  I liked it, I loved it, I wanted it to be my “thing.” I struggled (and still do sometimes) with balance and focus, with everything else I had “to-do”, with the guilt of taking time to be on the mat, and with my ego.  I wasn’t “as good” as everyone else in the room.  

One day at the end of practice, I was in savasana and felt amazing, graceful, strong, empowered, capable and I knew in that moment I wanted this to be a bigger part of my life.  I took a 200 hour RYT this spring and it changed my practice.  Not just the physical aspect, but the mental & spiritual practice as well.  I learned that “I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be” and try to embrace that every day.

I have been honored to be able to begin subbing some practices in the FFamELHHY studios.  I hope to bring a piece of the feeling that brought me on this journey to other yogis.
