lali webI came to yoga at a time of major life change, after years of working long hours as a physician while becoming a wife and mother along the way. After 17 years of delivering babies, I gave up practicing obstetrics and reshaped my medical career. But those years took a toll physically: long hours with little sleep, and a neglect of exercise and good nutrition for myself, while giving all I could to my family and my patients. A good friend recommended I try heated flow yoga as a way to empower myself physically, while learning a practice that could help quiet my mind as well. It took only one class for me to realize the power yoga would have in my life journey. I find a joy on my mat that keeps me smiling for the rest of the day. I hope to bring that same joy to my students.
