I NEVER THOUGHT I’D SAY THIS BUT…
I’m becoming more and more like my parents as I grow up. My mom was my first yoga teacher, taught me how to meditate, and has always encouraged me to eat more plant-based whole foods. And my dad is all about the discipline and “push your limits” mentality. He quite literally had my little brother and I climb mountains when we were just 5 and 7 years old.
I grew up practicing Indian classical dance, hiking, swimming, but hated P.E. all through grade school. I thought fitness meant “running” and I despised running! I eventually took my first group fitness class at 24 hour fitness when I was 16 (was too scared to be the only gal lifting weights in the gym) which really unleashed my curiosity for all types of training. I am a 500hr ryt but have been practicing yoga for 15+ years and have spent the past 12 years marrying myself to different sports/movement arts at months/years at a time to explore, experiment and find purpose in said style of training. This includes dance, swimming, basketball, weightlifting, HIIT, kickboxing, calisthenics with added variations of each movement modality.
