What do you love about yoga?

I love Yoga because the more you practice the closer you are to becoming aware. In the state of awareness is where you can make the most change and overcome many internal obstacles. I will always turn to Yoga when I need to seek myself and come back to center.

How has yoga and meditation changed your life?

My life changed the first day I stepped on my mat and started to notice my breath. It was short and everything felt uncomfortable. I quickly learned that Yoga would be my ultimate teacher on and off the mat. The practice empowers me, the breath guides me, and the vibrations of energy align me with my true self. In my life yoga has become a place I always return to find comfort and reflection – a time to witness.

Why did you want to be a Desk Angel at Bella Prana?

Bella Prana is a place I find myself drawn to energetically. Before I was a Desk Angel, I was a member for a year. In my life I was looking for a way to give back and serve others. I heard about the Desk Angel position and thought it would be the perfect way to give back to the community that has given me so much. That’s when I reached out and took the opportunity to share my light, build community, and continue my yoga journey off the mat.

What’s one of your favorite (healthy) recipes that you would like to share with the Bella Prana community.

5-Minute Spinach Smoothie: 2-3 cups raw spinach, 1 cup frozen banana, ½ water/almond milk, ½ cup ice, 1 tablespoon spirulina powder/moringa power/maca powder (optional), 1 pitted date, 1 scoop of plant-based protein powder (optional). Enjoy!

Bella Prana loves and appreciates all that our desk angels do to make the studio and student experience magical. Bella Prana is voted Best of the Bay and is located in Tampa, FL offering 90 classes a week.
