What do I bring?

What made you want to start yoga and why do you teach?
I started yoga as another form of exercise. However after about two months, I started seeing the health benefits and mind benefits. I was struggling with the every day demands of a career, parenting, being a wife and found that yoga gave me an outlet and helped me process and change the things that were truly wrong, and not just lash out at those around me in fustration.
I started wanting to teach, when people would say “Id like to try yoga, but I can’t bring myself to go to a studio”. This is a fair point – usually they are overwhelmingly white and everyone, even your fellow students, already seems an expert. I hope to change the perception of yoga and bring it to communities with the least amount of access to such a wonderful health benefit.
I’m not in shape.
Can I still do yoga?
Yoga is not a competition -unless you want to create a fake one in your head.
Whether your goal is just to try something new for a few weeks or make it to the bombest head or hand stand you can, your only limitation is what your mind says you can’t do. Also remember, whatever your goals, New Edition didn’t get a Grammy overnight. There were a lot of local talent shows in OP before they got a chance at the big stage.

A goal is just a dream with a deadline..
I'm pretty sure that quote is Drake.. About 2 years ago, I was sitting in the lobby of my daughter’s dance class, talking to the other “dance moms” (I miss them so much) and said I wish there was a place for us to practice yoga in Brockton. When they all suggested...
