I spent the majority of 2020 in a wheelchair and learning to walk again. So excited to continue my practice and begin teaching!

About a month ago, my husband expressed some interest in doing yoga for the first time. Now, every morning we do yoga together. I look forward to us inspiring each other in 2022.

I’m in recovery and took the plunge to journal and adhere to a daily yoga and pranayama practice about eight months ago. It completely altered my health and mental state. This year, I’m immersing myself in all of the principles of yoga and challenging myself to practice balancing poses while remaining connected to my breath.

Yoga saved my sanity this past year. In 2022, I’m excited to start teaching (I’m about to get certified!) so I can share this gift with others.

I would like to start volunteer-teaching simple poses, maybe chair yoga, to older people at a senior center or living facility.
