Yoga is a lighthouse. The light of yoga drew me through the darkness and home to myself. Once I felt the wonders of yoga, it was impossible for me to keep it to myself. I had to teach others.
Around my two year anniversary of yoga teaching, the pandemic forced us into our homes. I began offering virtual yoga classes. In taking those classes, we showed up for ourselves, and each other. In that dark time, we used yoga as our beacon. We welcomed each other into our homes, virtually. We met each other's families and pets. We laughed, we cried.
As time went on, we added teachers and members. And here we are a year and a half later. We've built so much together; we've learned so much (and it's never too late to join us).
The name Journey Forward Yoga centers around my tattoo, which says "Brave" with an arrow. It reminds me to continue moving forward, bravely. This is what we do together. On the mat, we bravely rise to the challenge of the poses. Off the mat, we find the same strength to handle the challenges of being human.
The journey of our lives is never in a straight line, but it's always forward. Each time we experience something, we learn; we grow. That's what we do together at Journey Forward Yoga. We find strength in mind and body from wherever we are: physically and mentally.
We hope you'll join us in this journey.
