"It’s not always pretty, it’s not always fun and it’s not always connected –
but it’s always there. It’s steady. It’s real."
I discovered yoga as a young college student struggling with body image, self- esteem and, though unknown to me at the time, anxiety. Yoga has always been my rock – my through-line though – gently guiding me back to my body and breath and a deeper sense of connection to myself, others, and beyond through all stages of life. It’s not always pretty, it’s not always fun and it’s not always connected – but it’s always there. It’s steady. It’s real. Inspiring me to stop, listen and connect.
Through my career as an orthopedic and pelvic health physical therapist, I continue to incorporate the breath, asana and meditation practices with a focus on alignment and awareness. The community that I have found at The Bhaktishop inspires not only my most connected and conscious self, but also my innermost anatomy-nerd.
