My first yoga class was a college course, and I loved it. When yoga started to become popular, I would attend yoga classes mostly at the gym. I was looking forward to yoga one day and the class was canceled. I began to realize how important it was to me. I searched on line looking for a yoga class. I found a yoga studio and I was hooked. I didn't need the gym, I had all I needed in yoga, and so much more. Practicing yoga makes me feel mentally, physically and spiritually healthier. Yoga calms me. Breathing and meditating are re-set buttons for me. The yoga lifestyle is a compassionate way of thinking and a reminder not to judge yourself or others. Yoga helps me focus and reminds me most of life challenges can be managed. Almost always, I feel happy and relaxed after practicing on my mat. I can be on my own or in a class with the community. The feeling after just an hour of yoga truly is an experience that can not be understood with just words, it has to be experienced. I earned my 200 Hours of teacher training with Hot8Yoga in 2017. I absolutely love sharing this amazing gift of yoga. Namaste ya'll, Jan
