Yoga found me during my adolescence- a time when we are all extra squirmy in our own skin. I danced in and out of yoga most of my life. When I moved to Manhattan in 2009, the practice beckoned to me. It became my emotional safe haven.
And thus yoga itself became a teacher, a nurturer, a healer, and a friend. From the practice I have met my gurus and mentors who have been a means of support, tough love, and endless amounts of information.
