I fell in love with yoga after my first class. I found it amazing how moving our bodies in unison provided me with a sense of community and acceptance that I had never really felt.
As a curvy practitioner, I became more interested in how using props in yoga helps anyone practice. I love using anything at my disposal to get others to feel good in their practice.
An ESL teacher by trade, I began to notice how underrepresented certain populations were in yoga, including my Hispanic, low-income, Spanish-speaking adult students. I decided that I'd become a yoga teacher to not only teach yoga in Spanish to the community, but also to anyone who feels alienated or not identified by the status quo.
Yoga is life affirming, healing and peace-making. I believe that everyone should experience the wisdom of yoga and a yogic lifestyle.
