2. What does yoga community mean to you?
I recently became an Inner Fire Luminary and not only becoming a brand ambassador for brand I became part of a positive yogi lifestyle community. I’ve gotten learn new things about my other Luminary family as well as about myself. Getting positive comments and messages encouraging me to keep going from My Inner Fire Family. I love being able to connect with people who have similar goals, vibes and active lifestyles like me.
3. How does yoga bring us together?
I believe yoga brings us together by helping us keep an open mind about different ways to stay active and fit. You can do all different types of yoga like classes, partner yoga, biran sessions etc. There are so many different types of yoga there is something for everyone. I also believe you can’t truly know someone until you know yourself. You can start learning about your self by upping your self awareness with yoga. Yoga has really helped me by learning to calm my anxiety to help relax my mind and body. I am one of those people who is always having a million thoughts per second and never can turn my mind off. After putting yoga more frequently into my workout regimen I have noticed that I can do things I never thought possible. In the end its all about making that first step to go to that yoga class you might be nervous to attend or making it a regular routine even if its only for 10 minutes a day. Make that first step and it will make all the difference in your life. I was recently visiting my grandma down in Daytona Beach, FL and I had just received my first Inner Fire Apparel package. As I was trying on the outfits I had gotten my grandma came in and was telling me how adorable they were. She also mentioned how it reminded her that she’s always wanted to try going to a yoga class in her sub division, but she was too nervous that she was too nervous about her age and never trying it before. Luckily I was down there for 2.5 weeks so I was able to surprise book us into a class one Tuesday morning. I didn’t tell her until the night before. After the class the next day my grandma was so happy she went. She was so happy that she had me to give her that extra push she needed to attend her first class that she was in tears of joy. She now attends a weekly class in her community and it makes her so happy to be a part of such a positive learning community.
