SoulTribe Adventures, Co-Founder SoulPlay Yoga, Founder Culver City, CA
Teaching yoga has opened so many other opportunities and doors for me to help empower others the way this practice empowered me. I now own and operate SoulPlay Yoga in Culver City, California, a bright, quirky and diverse neighborhood studio that celebrates our differences, and I also run SoulTribe Adventures: Yoga, Fitness & Adventure Retreats.
I was fortunate to have been introduced to the practice of yoga during my college years. I initially practiced yoga for the physical conditioning and as a form of workout. Similar to many young girls in college I suffered from an eating disorder and poor body image; yet, there was something about yoga class that was uniquely different than all the kickboxing and spin classes that I also participated in at that time.
