How did you get started ?
After playing basketball in college and having an ACL reconstruction, two knee scopes and surgery on both shins I finished my career unable to walk without pain.
A mentor introduced a short vinyasa flow and after practicing several weeks I began to feel differently in my skin. .
How has yoga transformed your life ?
The new sensation within was enchanting and I soon found myself engrossed in learning more about meditation, scripture and pranayama, in addition to asanas.
That passion led to becoming a certified yoga teacher in addition to being a personal trainer.
“Yoga creates a calm within, serves as a cleansing from the chaos and noise of the world, and provides a balance, a sense of groundedness, so we can continue to do our good works with grace. ”
Do you have any yoga tips for beginners ?
Biggest tip for a beginner is start right where you are and focus your journey on self discovery and awareness. Yoga is about learning how your breath feels, how your body is able to move and how to focus your mind on the current task at hand. If you take on Yoga as a means to explore and learn more about yourself – you are already winning. Often practitioners can get caught up trying to emulate their favorite instructo
r and or judging their practice on their ability to do a handstand or Pincha. It’s not about that outward sensation but rather learning about how you respond by being present, making adjustments and living fully in the now, moving mindfully moment to moment.
