I found yoga by accident. Literally!
It was 2001 and I was a rabid gym rat when I broke my pinkie toe and was rendered unable to work out.
So, as my toe healed but I still couldn’t put my foot in a shoe, I tried “that yoga thing” that someone had been telling me about for years.
The instant the class began, I knew this was exactly what I needed to complete.
Mentally, physically, and spiritually.
Yoga spoke to me on such a visceral level that I gave up everything to make it my life.
I was in the process of getting my MBA and had a terrific career, but life took an unexpected 180-degree turn.
At that point, I had never “quit” anything in my life.
But I left UCLA and I left my job, not knowing if I would ever earn another dollar again.
In the past 19 years, yoga has taken me around the world and back.
I have taught over 200 workshop weekends and met the most incredible people.
Some, I would not hesitate to call ‘family’.
Every night, I have to thank God for the unfathomable success I have been given.
Perhaps it was because I expected nothing and committed everything that I have been so lucky.
