WHEN DID YOU START YOGA AND WHERE? I did my first yoga class at Yoga Tribe about 14 months ago from a trail pass from Lindsey Hill. I sat next to her at our kids baseball games, and she told me she is a yoga instructor. She invited me in to try it out, so I came in and did my first 90-minute class. Then I tried the 20 for 20 and took full advantage of that time. After that I tried several studios, but I could not get my mind off this one. It had everything I wanted right here in my own backyard. HOW OFTEN DO YOU PRACTICE YOGA? I practice yoga four to five days a ..

WHEN DID YOU START YOGA AND WHERE? I started yoga in 2005 before I lost my leg. My first studio was Purple Moon in Roseville,Ca. The first class I took I thought I was going to die, it was like nothing I have ever done before it was more of a mental challenge for me to stay focused. I have always worked out and ran but this was completely different and I became addicted to the challenge. I lost my leg in 2014 due to Necrotizing Fasciitis. I nearly died, but I remember being in the hospital bed thinking I will never be able to do yoga again… When I came home I weig ..

WHEN DID YOU START YOGA AND WHERE? I started yoga about 5 years ago. The first two years was a sporadic experience - like the proverb says “You have to kiss a lot of frogs to find your prince”, I had to sweat on many yoga floors before I found the right one. Among the popular studios I tried were Yogaworks and Corepower yoga, however I could not bring myself to fully commit to these places because the atmosphere was too competitive and elitist.
