“I began practicing yoga nearly 10 years ago as an elective in college. The universe presented yoga to me at a critical time in my life and it has continued to be a driving force. Throughout my training, degrees and research I have found that my favorite part of yoga is simply to arrive on my mat and ‘do what feels good and leave the rest behind’. I enjoy everything from a 27-sun salutation challenge to an hour-long savasana. For me, yoga is a creative and playful way to be present and express yourself.”
