I grew up in Kenya. I was drawn to Yoga's physical practice in my 30's as it's low impact methods suited me. The more I practiced, the more i benefited on a deeper and more spiritual level, as well as the obvious physical one. I was inspired to deepen my practice and pursue a teacher training course in November 2014, a year after losing my mother suddenly. The spiritual texts and philosophy behind the yoga practice are a source of grounding and are an inspiration in my daily life.
