I began my yoga journey with my daughter on our Mother-Daughter trips. When we traveled, she always made sure we took time to practice. I practiced, but only to humor my daughter.
Our family is devoted to staying healthy and fit. Both my son and my daughter work in the health care industry. We have always spent a lot of time in the gym. I enjoy working out, but become bored with daily gym routines. Also, after two knee surgeries, I was becoming more and more limited in what I could do.
During a visit to the gym, we ran into a fellow devotee. We talked about what we were into at that time, what was working….what wasn’t. She told us that she had been going to the new, “hot yoga” place. She told us about the studio and the practice.
We called and set up “trial memberships” that day. That was in March of 2013. After the first class, we were hooked!! During the next 12 months, I started noticing a difference in how I looked and most important, how I felt. I was down over 20 pounds, my joints didn’t hurt as much and my back pain was gone.
I started teaching for Lava early in 2015. In July I completed my 200 hour RYT Certification with YogaWorks, taught by Jessa Voos.
I have practiced yoga in many studios, but have never found a community quite like the one at Lava Yoga. The environment fostered at Lava is one of kindness, understanding, and acceptance. No matter whether you are a beginning practitioner or a life-long yogi, you will enjoy practicing at Lava Yoga.
