In 2014, I started attending yoga classes at a studio. I didn’t know what drew me there at the time but now I would tell you it was the universe and that it was written in my soul’s purpose all along. The more I practiced, the stronger my desire and appreciation for the assembly of mind, body, and soul grew. In 2017, I applied to Practice Indie’s Yoga Teacher Training program and began the YTT journey under the instruction of Shannon Brasovan and Purvi Lippincott. I did not know at the time how transformative that process would be and I am forever grateful for the experience. It required me to dig deep within and work on the toughest messes I carried inside. As a result, I became the bravest and best version of myself and because I’m so perfectly flawed I get to wake up each day and work on me again and again. This is my practice. And now, I feel like the luckiest of all because I get to share my practice with you in the space that facilitated my deepest appreciation for a new way of sharing my existence in this world. I know I am sometimes branded the eternal optimist and it could be gag-worthy but seriously people: dreams do come true.
