Join me, Heather Says, HoopYogini Master Trainer, for the HoopYogini Spinal Awakening Series! "This program is designed to tone your core, improve your posture and reduce back pain. Learn about the importance of the spine as the conduit that nourishes all other body systems. Cultivate Centered Pose, your place of inner power, strength and resilience. Integrate each pose into a flowing dance. Establish a healthy habit and the ability to show up for your personal well-being and empowerment." - www.hoopyogini.com We will move our spine in all directions, center ourselves and relax the mind, all while using the hoop as a tool for this true hatha yoga practice. We will bring the hoops onto our body, relearning that fun workout we did as kids. You do NOT need ANY hula hoop or yoga experience for this class, but you will need an adult sized hula hoop. Go to www.hoopcubed.com for more info on me and all the classes I offer!

I was never the most fit or knowledgeable person to go to when it came to working out. I wasn't the person you looked at and said, I want to be like her. It's been a long and trusting process to become what I am today, and there is still so much to learn. I started my yoga journey at the end of 2017 because I was in a time of my life where I just needed to slow down to listen to myself. My luck in the world of love had taken me away from myself. Right after high school, I was in a physically and mentally abusive relationship. After a broken eye socket, many bruises, and broken arm, I decided to leave for good. About a year later, I thought I was ready to go back into the world of dating. I quickly found myself in a relationship that was less than perfect but, hey, it was better than the last one. Still, I found myself unsatisfied yet jumped in to a marriage that I wasn't going to be completely happy in. Working 6 days a week from 7 in the morning to 9 at night, and wearing myself as thin as possible. I wasn't taking care of myself, and taking all my anger out on whoever was around. I was a person that I hated. About three months of a consistent yoga practice and changing jobs, I was finally able to see that my life was that way because I let it be, that my happiness was truly up to me, and not anyone else. If I wasn't happy, then it was my fault. I had been through so much because I chose to stay there instead of change my situation. By the end of 2018, I decided to file for divorce and move on with my life. It was hard, I cried A LOT, and I blamed everyone else for my problems for a while. Looking back now, I can see I just completely broke and in denial that I was the reason for my pain. I started focusing more on work; I had just begun teaching trapeze yoga and working full time at the studio, so it was easy for me to keep busy. I just gave it all to my work, and it helped. I started focusing on the present moment, just like all my yoga teachers had said so many times before. That is when my whole life began to change. I started focusing on me for once. I started eating vegan, kept up my practice, and let go of whatever did not serve me. I stopped being as selfish and tried to look at situations as if I was in the other person's shoes. Now, I've been teaching Trapeze Yoga for two years, have my 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training Certificate, teach Inferno Hot Pilates, and have an amazing boyfriend who has supported me through it all. Life couldn't be any better!
