My personal yoga journey.
I have been a yogi for a long time since 2003. I started practicing yoga because I was curious about it. Then I liked how it felt in my body. I have been in and out of practice since then.
Today I come to my yoga practice to integrate my spiritual beliefs with the poses. My yoga practice is evolving and have had a tremendous opportunity to study as a BIPOC Yoga Teacher Scholarship recipient in 2020 when I received my RYT 200. Since then I have taken classes, studied, attended retreats and workshops hosted by Octavia Raheem, Elena Brower, Dr. Gail Parker, Jillian Pransky, and Cyndi Lee to name a few.
I have also received my RYT500 and seriously began my journey as a yoga teacher.
There is a definite difference been refuge and being. My yoga poses or asanas allowed me to sit with what comes up. For once in my life I have found safety and nourishment because of it.
Yoga has allowed me to go to a place that I feel nourished to create ground for reconnection to my goodness. In 2020, I came home to myself - the emotions, the physical pain and anguish of what was. However, yoga took me away from my anxiety to focus on the positive.
I integrate my practice as a part of my interior environment coaching and other services. I am looking forward to sharing how yoga is integrated in relationship to home.
Yoga is my refuge. It is my sacred sanctuary of home.

Self-care, or karma yoga for self, requires effort, focused attention and perseverance. It means choosing behaviors that balance the effects of emotional and physical stressors. Self-care at home should balance practices of stillness, exercise, love, aesthetic beauty, and healthy food.
Yoga is a self care practice that can be done in the home. It is part of the H or Health to cultivate within.
