How Has Yoga Benefited You The Most:
Practicing since I was 17, yoga brings me serenity and helps me evoke this in others.
Reason Started Doing Yoga:
I started doing yoga in the 90’s as it was a widely accepted form of exercise/meditation/relaxation. I found a local studio at the beach near my home in Australia and would take classes with the pro surfers. I found a deep connection to how I felt during and after classes and began to notice the amazing benefits of moving through pranayama and asana. I love the connection between my mind, body, and breath.
