Think of all the time we spend bending forward in the day…at the computer (guilty!), reading over a coffee, texting, cleaning, eating… in actuality most of our day is spent in an unsupported forward bend. This makes the back very cranky.
I am reaching for this ring because from the moment I first stumbled onto a mat about 10 years ago, yoga has filled every corner of me with light and love. I have learned (and continue to learn) how to meet and face challenges on and off my mat with grace. I am reaching because I fundamentally believe that movement, serenity, and respect for oneself and other beings is a path to mind and body wellness. And though (blissfully) I will always be a student, I am reaching for this ring because I want to share these things with my family and friends, my patients, and strangers who are yet to cross my path.
