A bit about me
I began practicing Yoga over 25 years ago, but it really piqued my interest after 9/11.
The world was changing rapidly, and I could sense something very profound bubbling up within me.
I was working as a sales agent for a television production company, highly stressed out, and didn’t really understand that I was experiencing burnout.
There were days where I couldn’t get out of bed and I had to drag myself into work, often wondering, “Is this really my best life?” And "if I continue to work in this way, how will it eventually affect my health?"
I knew my life couldn't stay this way because, unfortunately, as a young teen, I witnessed my Mother, highly stressed out from her job, eventually pass away from cancer by the time I hit 19.
A few years after her death, I discovered Yoga and it was the only thing that really helped me move through those challenging days.
I was first drawn to the physical part of Yoga, the asanas, but I didn’t expect that the seated meditation practice would have such a progressive effect on me.
