My yoga journey was not by accident, it was an intuitive way of living. I had a yearning to understand the connection of the body, mind, and spirit. I was that person always reading non-fiction books about life, self-help, human relationships, growth, and organic living. Eventually, I found my way to yoga. The guidance of an experienced teacher helps to shape things. My first true experience of this “yoga” practice happened unexpectedly at the end of class when I started to cry in savasana and did not completely understand why. The teacher graciously said sometimes it just happens in yoga. That wasn’t enough for me. The experience left me speechless and euphoric, I wanted to understand more. Years later, I am realizing that I had a somatic experience. This realization helped shape me into the teacher I have grown to be today.
