What do you love about yoga?

“I love how yoga allows me to be selfish. No matter what type of day I am having, I can leave it all on the mat. I can be present with myself and remember how now is all that matters. It allows me to recharge so that I can become a better version of myself so that I my better serve others. In case of emergency, put the oxygen mask on yourself before helping others. Yoga is my oxygen mask.”

How has yoga and meditation changed your life?

“Through yoga, I have met some outstanding human beings. That in itself has made my life richer. I have also been able to participate in a few yoga retreats this past year; France and Nepal. Both experiences have been extremely valuable. I started yoga for the physical benefits and I stayed for the spiritual growth within me.”

Bella Prana has been able to create a loving, accepting and supportive culture. The teachers are passionate and focused on the growth of its students. I love how each time I step into the studio, I am greeted with many smiles and hugs.
