Yoga for a hectic lifestyle

mind body connectQUESTION: How do you focus and stay your best during the fluctuation between celebrations, losses, responsibilities, work, family, and self-care?

ANSWER: To stay focused I need my yoga and meditation practice, everyday…and it’s just that – a practice! Every so often a new level of awareness beckons. Sometimes I’m annoyed, other times I’m delighted, either way I am always rewarded with strength, flexibility, balance, serenity and a better version of myself.

Take a few breaths and remember the last time you felt your best. That is why I opened Yoga Born, my practice expanded beyond the surface and towards a deeper experience of engaging in life. I look forward to seeing you in the studio to make time for yourself, you deserve it….trust me everything else will wait. 
Peace, love & happiness,
