My first "aha" yoga moment came ten years ago, at an LA Fitness, of all places. I had always been active in gymnastics, competitive cheerleading, and a few unsuccessful attempts at soccer and basketball. In each of these activities, my mind stayed busier than my body. I was honestly uncomfortable with the aspect of yoga that implied my thinking brain was capable of slowing down - until it did. In a well put together class by an Indian man, Dashboard Confessionals came through the speakers. I was surprised and right at home. In the closing postures of that class, my brain fell quiet for just a few seconds. It stopped worrying about my social circle, my obligations, and my insecurities - it took rest and my appreciation for yoga was born.

I wish that from there I became an enlightened young yogi, able to shun my concerns with the outside world and spend hours a day in meditation and asana, though that was not the case. I went to college in Los Angeles and created chaos in my personal life, because I thought that's what growing up was about. Whenever I could afford it though, I came back to yoga, fueled by the "yoga high" I would receive and the safe environments my teachers created.

After ten years of coaching recreational gymnastics, I signed up for a 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training, which I completed in 2015. I dove deeply into the regimented practice of Ashtanga. For the first time, I understand the role of the ego. It held an enormous power of my life and my practice that I let go. I began teaching a few classes here and there, for corporate clients, at the YMCA, and at a local barre studio. I loved the idea of teaching, but I felt a disconnection from my students. I allowed my ego to creep back in. For a while, I put the me into my practice and into my teaching - two places it certainly did not belong.

Fast forward to 2018. I've reenrolled in a much weightier 200 hour training and have fully immersed myself in the teachings of yoga. I have developed a daily meditation practice, a reverence for the ancient teachings, and an unwavering appreciation for the wisdom and relief that yoga brings. I live and teach from a place of connection. I recognize that I am a student and that yoga offers me countless lessons to learn. In a world so obsessed with living better, I'm glad to know these teachings will always offer their guidance.
