How Yoga Has Helped Me: Deeper Than Poses

Back in high school, I struggled to find confidence and acceptance for myself and turned to eating disorders.  I worked out far too much and even did yoga, but I did not understand much about the ancient practice.  Feeling inadequate for 8 years, I battled bulimia on and off.

Let’s Talk Self-LOVE

Self-love comes easily for some, and no so much for others.  It's my mission to create that healthy, loving space for Lucca.  When he learns to love and accept himself, he will be confident, caring, compassionate, kind, and generous.  He will thrive and succeed.
