Journey to Titanium Yoga

You have a plan for your life, right?

Your idea of what you will do and where you will live.

Then life throws you for a loop.

Life is an incredible journey.

Opening a yoga studio and becoming a yoga teacher was not on my radar.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had an entrepreneurial spirit. I began my career working for startups, and it was a thrill. But at the same time, I was working to advance someone else’s dream – not my own.

After my accident, I had time to think about what came next. I remember telling my significant other that I wanted to wear yoga pants every day – half joking, because who doesn’t want to wear yoga pants every day? – but there was some truth to my statement.

That’s where yoga came in.

Yoga was the only thing that made me feel better, and I was hooked after my first class. I became obsessed with yoga, all the different types of classes and the different poses that came with them.

I wanted to try them all.

I feel bad for anyone who travels with me because if I see a yoga studio, we are stopping for a class. From a ski chalet in Europe to hip-hop classes in NYC, there is so much variety, and I hope to bring the best of those classes to Ponte Verde Beach!

I have to do yoga every day for the rest of my life, but that’s a much better life sentence than the wheelchair I was supposed to be in.

Living pain-free.

Helping others.

And wearing yoga pants every day.

This is MY dream now.
