When yoga came into my life I certainly didn’t know I was even looking for it. I grew up in South Dakota, a pretty conservative place, and people did not do yoga there 10 or 12 years ago. I sure as heck didn’t either. In fact, at my high school 10-year reunion a couple years ago, the people were saying that if there was a category in our yearbook; “Least likely to Become a Yoga Teacher,” I would’ve been the hands down winner.
However, somehow, when I was around 20-years-old, I came across this little book called Richard Hittleman’s 28-day Yoga Program, and found it irresistible. It was such a godsend, because my life was completely out of control, and when I actually started doing exercises in the book, it really helped me turn things around. I really don’t know where I’d be right now had I not stumbled across that book. Thank goodness that I did though, because yoga has made me a better human being in every way possible, and filled my life with all sorts of wonderful, good-hearted and interesting people.
Apart from yoga, I have a strong interest in fitness and healthy eating as well.
