During my career on Wall Street, my yoga practice kept my mind calm and focused. However, a permanent injury had taken me off the mat for over a year. During that year, I moved to Pittsburgh to pursue a very demanding MBA. The constant pressures of study and job search had eroded my confidence and positive perspective. Apprehensive about my new physical limitations, I purposefully sought out yoga to restore my mind and soul. I thank LA for helping me get me back.
LA helped me transform my personal outlook through both the self-actualization developed through her intense, power yoga practice and non-violence she asks each student to give to himself as his practice patiently develops. She worked with my limitations, and helped me deepen my established practice through careful readjustment.
LA gives personal attention and very real care to students so all levels might perfect the postures. While she coaches each asana and leads students through a tremendous “workout,” More importantly, LA gifts her students with self-confidence and a “don’t take yourself so seriously” attitude that revitalizes and fosters a yoga practice that is really practice for life.
