Yoga is so much more than a workout. Asanas (poses), alone are just that: poses. However, when you combine breath with asanas, uniting the body and the mind, that is where true yoga begins.” I stumbled upon my yoga practice in 2011 shortly after moving to Texas. I never really had a yoga practice before this, unless you count Bob Harper’s “Biggest Losers Weight Loss Yoga” DVD as a practice. I purchased a Groupon for Gaia Flow Yoga studio in Uptown to find stress relief from my grueling Bar Exam studies. What I discovered, in spite of my belief of being a horrible yogi in terms of the poses, was a desire to keep trying. As I continued to find my way back to my mat, I found my breath, I found poses I never in a million years thought I could perform. I found strength, I found flexibility, but most importantly I found my focus. In 2012, I found CrossFit and fell in love after the very first WOD. The opportunity to combine two things that I am completely passionate about is such an honor and I feel very privileged to guide students through their yoga practice.
