I found Baptiste Yoga on a fluke. I practiced with teachers who had trained with Baron Baptiste, but during my first few years of practicing power yoga I had never been to an official Baptiste studio. I dove in anyway and went to Level One. It changed my life. My eyes got wider. I wanted to talk to people in a real way. I left knowing that I’m not alone. With Baptiste Yoga, I feel strong and capable. Whenever I teach yoga, or whenever I practice yoga, I always feel better, that is why I keep coming back. When I am not at the studio, I am exploring, reading, drinking coffee, or hanging with my boyfriend and his dog. Baptiste Yoga has brought me mental determination, a body that I trust to support me, and a community that I confide in and love.
