"Yoga came to me in early adulthood when my life was full of wrongs, imbalance, excess and disconnection. Through the grace of countless teachers and dedicated practice I have come to find all aspects of this practice to help me see my innate goodness and to challenge who I am beyond my self-conceived bounds.
