A very classic ‘yoga changed my life’ kind of a story of being 19, completely confused, living in London and struggling with self-worth etc. A friend of mine took me to a hot yoga class and my yoga journey began with discipline, lots of sweat and so so many tears. As soon as I reached the point of release and was allowing myself to cry and let go I knew I wanted to share this practice and support others in their journeys of self-love.
