Yoga is a way of life. It is about being your truest self in all situations. It has helped me to find myself and where i belong. Yoga is a personal journey which allows you to become aware of the things that are important to you. Through my practice i have discovered more about myself and my body and about my place in this world. It has taught me, and continues to teach me, how to let go of the things that I cannot control as well as the things that no longer serve me. It has taught me to appreciate both what I have and who I have in my life.

Every time I step on my mat, i know that i am on a journey to something new. Yoga is a place of no judgement or expectations. It is a place where I feel free to express myself through breath and movement. It is a place where i feel accepted and it instills in me a feeling that I can take with me anywhere i am in this world. I practice yoga because I love the way it makes me feel. It grounds me down and keeps me connected with who I am. Yoga has taught me patience, both with myself and the people around me. Yoga has also shown me how to be a better person than i was yesterday.
