My yoga journey began in 2010 during a time of frustration from unmet expectations and struggles with self worth. I self prescribed daily workouts to combat this depression and create a sense of control in my life just as a yoga studio opened in my neighborhood. I joined out of convenient curiosity and 5 years later I took part in their teacher training, where I started to find my voice and envision a dream for my practice: Our Lam Yoga.
I decided my first responsibility in sharing my journey was to create a safe space to develop deep roots. Just as the first cakra Muladhara (LAM) focuses on the sacral root and letting go of fear, we focus on strengthening our basic foundation so that we can build the courage and trust – in the ground, in ourselves and each other – to grow. Each day is a new day and each time we come to our mats, it is different. Lam is also an homage to my family, my roots, and how I have been blessed with the freedom to fly.
Since embarking on our world wide travels, I lost any sense of regularity in my practice and took on a 30 Days of Yoga challenge to find the the discipline again. With the help of Carl, I used that video series to keep me accountable to my recommitment and hoped that it would encourage and serve as an honest representation of what a yoga practice can look like, especially while traveling. After the completion of our 30 Days of Yoga challenge, we start a new weekly series, Caturanga Workshop, which will help us build a strong foundation to come to the common but significant pose, caturanga. This new journey begins in September.
