I started practicing yoga about three years ago, when my cousin brought me to my first class at a studio called CorePower Yoga. Before this, I had never done any yoga so I didn’t really know what yoga truly was or what it entailed, but I had known for a while that I wanted to try it out. So, when my cousin asked me if I wanted to go with her to her studio, I was super excited/nervous about it. Excited because I was finally going to be able to try it out, but nervous because I had no clue what to expect.
After taking just that first class, I knew yoga was something that I wanted to keep doing and learning more about. So, I signed myself up for a membership and started taking classes every single day - sometimes even twice a day. I never thought that it would have become such a huge part of my life, but I am really glad that it has. I have gained so much physical and mental balance since starting my practice. I can honestly say that being on my mat is my happy place and is where I feel I can just be my complete self, away from any judgment.
Overall, yoga has helped me in so many ways and I am so thankful that I am able to practice it as much as I do.
