I began practicing Yoga 15 years ago at Namasté. While there have been periods of time when I
have strayed from my mat, something always brings me back to this space of peace and serenity
– a space that is just for me. I believe that to find peace in the world one must also find peace
within the self. Yoga has taught me to be patient with my body, my mind, and the world I share.
