how Full Heart Yoga came to be

My love affair with yoga really began in the summer of 2005, as I was searching for a new, healthy outlet to focus my energies.  For 10+ years my go-to was long-distance running, yet something told me it was time for a new challenge, a change of pace.  I stepped into an open-level Vinyasa class not knowing much about the practice, other than that many friends had repeatedly encouraged me to "just try it" over the years.  Well, all it took was one class - I was hooked.  The freedom that I experienced moving on my mat, as well as the deeper connection to my body, mind and spirit, both surprised and intoxicated me. There was no going back, only forward - with a yoga mat by my side and a new world of inspiration tucked in my heart.  I was certified to teach in 2011 and have been blessed to share my love of yoga ever since! ~ JLR
