My journey began 7years ago, it was all for fun. But the more I went for a yoga class the more I was amazed at what my body was capable of. And in 2014, I found out I had a tumor in my brain and had to surgically remove it. I was very depressed and stressed of the unknown. I started to take yoga and meditation seriously and every single day I stayed positive and worked out till my surgery day. Everything went successfully.
What made you take the leap into entrepreneurship?

I wanted to understand not only what yoga entitled but the anatomy and physiology aspect of the human body. I graduated with a 200hrs yoga training from a yoga alliance recognized yoga school and began teaching right after.
