DRISHTIQ Yoga is not about taking yourself too seriously- who cares if you are flexible or not? Who cares if you have ever been to a yoga class or not? DRISHTIQ Yoga is about having FUN and letting the expectations fall away! Accepting where you are today and not worrying about where you may be in the future. Focusing on the present moment and taking full advantage of it. When you focus within, anything is possible.
I have practiced yoga on and off throughout my life in small spurts, but my yoga journey really started in earnest after the passing of my youngest brother. I was struggling to manage my grief, my career as an engineer, and the responsibilities to my family. I had a 1 year old and a 3 year old at the time and they needed so much attention that it was hard to find any time for myself. My extremely supportive husband Matt encouraged me to start with the new student pass at Drishtiq and challenged me to go at least 7 times in the first month. That was a turning point for me. Regular weekly practices have helped my body recover from having two kids and my mind recover from grief and anxiety. The community at Drishtiq is wonderful and I feel at home every time I enter the studio. I am passing my love for yoga on to my girls who are now 4 and 6 years old. I am hoping it will serve them as well as it has served me. I am still trying to convince my husband to try it. Someday I will prevail! :)
