My yoga journey started around 2010 when my friend told me we should try yoga at Amazing Yoga. We were used to cycling, aerobics, running, but had never tried yoga. I quickly became hooked! I loved the sweating, how sore I felt, and how relaxed I was after. It became such a great compliment to my other workouts, but then gradually became my main love. Yoga has become part of my life because of the physical and mental benefits. After my son was born, I was diagnosed with post-partum depression. I lost touch with my practice for a while, but eventually it was yoga that brought me back from the depression. Now, I appreciate how the practice is healthy for my overall well-being and not just a workout. I became a work exchange in 2015 and now I'm so grateful to be a manager! When I'm not at the studio, I'm a preschool teacher's aide in Wexford or spending time with my son and husband.
