I joined Gaia Flow in 2013 as a way to find more balance in my life. I teach Krav Maga which is a very aggressive and intense activity and I wanted to find something that was just my own, which would allow me to completely unplug and just be a student again. I had no idea what to expect when I walked into the studio and I was in awe all throughout my very first class. Not only was the class exactly what I needed to calm my agitated mind, but I had never encountered so many people that radiated such kindness and love. I knew immediately that this was a place I needed to be.
Before I started yoga I was closed off and tightly wound. I was either completely detached from my emotions or overwhelmed by them. The further I go in my practice the more I have been able to open my heart, both to myself, and to others. It has been such a gift to be able to share so much more love and light with my friends, family and students.
I began teaching Krav Maga because I wanted to empower people, show them how strong they could be. I want to accomplish the same thing at Gaia Flow Yoga, as a yoga instructor I want to help my fellow yogis realize what they are capable of, who they really are, and then empower them to share that with the world.
