I became addicted to yoga in 2016 when every class felt like a safe haven, a respite from my chaotic monkey brain. Yoga allows me to be fully present and connect to my body in ways I never imagined.
I quit my corporate job and packed up my life to move across the world to Asia. My first stop was Bali, Indonesia to get my 200-hour yoga teacher certification. As I started traveling and practicing yoga consistently, I realized some profound truths about the world and the way I lived. These findings changed my mindset drastically, as I learned to let go of thoughts, people, and unnecessary stressors that weren’t contributing to my happiness.
I needed to find contentment within myself before I could even spend one moment being the person I’ve always wanted to be: confident, self-aware and unconditionally accepting of myself and others.
Through yoga, I was able to connect to my truest self and find contentment in all areas of my life.
I recognize the pursuit of happiness is one filled with a slew of challenges. Some days are harder than others, and I am far from perfect.
However, I can wholeheartedly say that now, living in a country with absolutely zero roots of my own, I am living the life I always dreamed of.
Now, I want to share my yoga practice and findings with you to help you get started on your own journey of self-actualization.
