What has yoga brought to you life?: Curiosity brought me to yoga. Many years ago, I remember peeking through a glass windown at a gym yoga class thinking I should give it a try. Immediately after my first class, I noticed that I felt better, physically and mentally. I started taking a couple of evening classes every week. I was working 60 hours a week back then. My work life was out of balance; I was always anxious and under stress. I had a successful career, but I was not happy and felt like something was missing. Through regular practice, yoga has given me physical and mental strength, confidence, awareness, and greater self-acceptance. I have learned to be present and mindful on and off the mat. Yoga has brought to my life inner peace, gentleness, and an overall sense of well-being.

Favorite pose: Headstand. Because I have learned to trust myself and believe in my ability. A total game-changer pose for me. Practicing headstand variations requires all of my focus, and I love to exhale when I am upside down.

A few adjectives to describe you: strong, passionate, kind

I am a mother of two very active young boys and it was time for some me time. My friend recommended the Yoga NoHo Center because they offer both the new hot infrared classes and traditional yoga classes. I was brand new to yoga and they suggested to take at least one private lesson. I actually bought their 4 pack and I am glad I did because Karen actually took extra time with me, even after my four lessons and guided me through the first few months of taking public classes. Now one year later, I can't believe how much my life has changed for the absolute better. Thank you to all the teachers at the Yoga NoHo Center!
