How did yoga become a part of your life? What led you to a devoted yoga practice?
When Day Yoga opened their location in Vandalia, I seen the beginners series advertised, I knew it was something I wanted to try. I fell in love with the way I felt afterwards and how rewarding it was to try new poses and push myself. Bonus was having an amazing teacher who knew how to help me push my boundaries.

That you have to be flexible to do yoga. If you can breathe you can do yoga. It's for anyone!
