I have struggled with anxiety and depression my whole life and yoga helped me be calm and centered and manage it. I wanted others to experience the healing benefits of yoga just as I have.

What would you say to someone hesitant to try yoga?
People always tell me”I can’t do yoga because I’m not flexible” but I tell them that is exactly WHY they should do yoga. Yoga is not about the ego or if you can get into some crazy pose, it’s all about the connection of the mind, body and spirit.
