What got you into yoga?
I signed up for a local Yoga class during a point in my life when I felt like I had given up so much of Me. I was trying to reconnect with Vanessa, and fell in Love with Yoga!
Why yoga today, and why prenatal yoga?
Yoga today continues to be my safe space, my self-care, my personal sense of grounding and connection to myself. It allows me to show up better, grow better, extend grace better, and most importantly exude peace and walk in gratitude better!
Prenatal Yoga, not only for the emotional benefits and the support that it can provide to an expecting person, but also for the amazing hip openers, as a Doula, I Love those hip openers!
