Student Feature: Catherine

I got a really beautiful, grateful email one day from Catherine, only about a month into her practice.  She gave us her backstory and the different diagnoses she had been given.  Just one month of consistent practice and she was already seeing huge changes in her health.  It’s been six months since then.  As evidenced…

Student Feature: Joel

  When I first met Joel, he told me he was dealing with arthritis.  Really nonchalant about the whole thing.  After I got to know him a bit more, and had the pleasure of leading him through class a few times, he let me in on his condition.   Joel has lived with arthritis, gout,…

Student Feature: Mario

Mario was one of BYF’s first students back in 2014.  I started seeing Mario at the studio pretty frequently a few months ago near the end of 2016.    Then I started seeing him A LOT so decided to check out his profile to see just how often he was practicing.  Turns out he had…

Student Feature: Teresita

Before I asked Teresita if I could feature her in the BYF newsletter this month, I took a look at her profile and saw she’d been practicing for exactly a year! Looking at her postures now and after reading her story, I am in awe at the struggles she’s had to push through to come this far in the last…

Student Feature: Brandon

I hear all the time from other students who see Brandon’s practice, “Wow, that guy is so flexible/talented/awesome.”  And he is. Brandon is an amazing yogi.  But behind all the great flexibility and balance, is a story of great healing.  It may not look this way, but Brandon has a titanium rod in his femur!…

The Best Painkiller Your Doctor Doesn’t Tell You About

  I hear plenty of reasons why students can’t come to the studio to practice.  The one I hear the most is, “I’m injured.”   And as I sadly, (figuratively) crawl after them, I (mentally) yell, “But that’s WHY you need to practice!!”   Unfortunately, most people view yoga as a fitness trend.  What they don’t…

Student Feature: Cindy

  I love seeing Cindy walk in through our front door at the studio because she always rocks a beautiful smile. There is always something exciting that she’s noticed in her yoga practice or changes in her body that she runs in to tell us about.  The yoga has helped her physically with several stubborn injuries,…
