I practiced yoga on and off for several years, but a running injury had brought me back to my mat more regularly. Because I’m a glutton for punishment, I continued running and it was during this time that I met LA. We were both training for marathons and fundraising for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
I started taking her classes when I could, partly because I knew her but mostly because her classes were challenging and fun. In LA’s classes, I found it easier to be present on my mat and I found it easier to accept my abilities and limitations, and as someone who is not a natural athlete, I had a lot of those! Through LA’s teaching, I have gotten stronger inside and out, and she has given me the tools to go further into my practice both in the studio and at home.
