How did you find yoga? What inspired you to start a practice?

I went to yoga with my Girlfriend Jocina when we first started dating. She said that she would never get serious with someone unless they went to a Baptiste Level One or Level Two. So after 5 months of practicing I went to Level One in Sedona AZ.

My biggest takeaway from level one is to calm the story in my head, and that my story is just that a story.

 

Favorite Pose:

Savasana

 

Pose I want to improve:

Chair

Why Baptiste Yoga? 

No other yoga has been as good, when I am practicing it is the only place where I can quiet my mind, so it make it my sanctuary.
