We are all on the same ground.

The most interesting experience I have had teaching and practicing yoga is when I traveled to Mexico for Level 2 with Baron Baptiste. It is there that I realized that I want to focus my teaching on women in my community. 

Everybody should practice yoga because it helps the body maintain fitness and relieve stress. 

I came to yoga while I was practicing acrobatics and getting a lot of injuries in my body. Yoga was healing me instead of hurting me. There are other benefits also, as a yoga instructor I have learned more about who I am. Now I am able to stand in front of a crowd and teach. I am 
much more confident, than even when I was performing in front of crowds. 

The slums are financially tough, but by bringing in yoga, we have brought in activity and unity. Various tribes have come together and are getting along.

I feel connected to everyone in the world who practices yoga. I feel we are all standing on the same ground.
