I started my yoga journey in 2012 as a freshman in college. I immediately fell in love with the flow of vinyasa yoga and the mental relaxation of yin yoga. Yoga has strengthened my physical body and added a new perspective in my life. My yoga journey does not stop on my mat, but begins when I face everyday challenges. I would love to continue my yoga journey with you and learn humbly from each and everyone of you. Namaste.
