I got into yoga about five years ago in Ethiopia. It was an escape from the problems I saw everyday and stress of living in a small African village. Yoga gave me the confidence to face the issues surrounding me and eventually a way to bond with the people around me. Yoga was a universal language that bridged the communication barrier. My passion for sharing yoga has grown ever since. I have mostly taught yoga with youth and adolescents who are HIV+ as a tool to manage anxiety and increase self -esteem. Also doing fun and creative yoga classes with children. I received my 200ryt in India focusing mostly on traditional breath, Hatha, and a little flow! I just moved to Las Cruces to begin my Masters of Public Health and hope to continue sharing and learning about the healing spirit of yoga with the communities here!
