Originally started practicing yoga as a physical exercise and eventually realized its potential for transformative healing. I expanded my view from the medical model and experienced that healing happens in many different ways. I am a dedicated yoga practitioner, primarily guided by the 8 Limbs of Ashtanga Yoga.
