It was love at first mat. 12 years ago, I met my mat for the first time. It was the first time I had ever experienced that moment. The present moment. I love yoga. It saved me from me. I believe you are able to heal yourself physically and mentally through your yoga practice. Allowing yourself to be in its perfection with all of your brokenness. I had a life long goal to become a yoga instructor. I was unable to find a Certification program within the DFW area that was a full Yoga Teacher Training. When we relocated to Arvada I found Asana. I graduated from Give Peace A Chance YTT in May of 2015.
