"I got into yoga because I was injured. I was a runner, and I used to play basketball, and I wanted to do something to heal those injuries and also stay in shape. And I found all of my classes to be restorative, and also I’m in the best shape of my life right now. It’s a full-spectrum experience. I became more flexible and stronger. I had shin splints and I’ve healed them through yoga." - Kasey


"I practice yoga because I have a lot on my plate, and I find that yoga really helps to ease my mind. It’s really relaxing, and it’s always a good reminder to just breathe." - Monique

"I do it more for the mindfulness and the spiritual reasons, not so much for the physical reasons (although I do benefit from it physically). It has helped me to be more centered, compassionate, calmer, and less anxious. It has also helped with my flexibility." - Rob
