Why FLY?

For as long as I can remember, I have moved in fearless pursuit of adventure. My family would always comment that I could never sit still or be in one place for too long. Ever since childhood, that has been true of me both physically and intellectually as well. I am a seeker of knowledge, experiences, and ideas–all of which I attribute to my Sagittarius spirit.

In 2009, I began the adventure of a lifetime when I took my first Bikram Yoga class. It was hot. It was humid. I was tired and out of breath. I was unsure of many things during that class (including why I had even stepped foot into that class in the first place), but the one thing I knew for sure is that I wanted out of that hot yoga room. For reasons unknown to this day, I signed up for class the next day. For about a week straight, I went back the next day, and the day after that. I now realize that was likely a result of my curiosity.

As I’ve journeyed through my Bikram Yoga practice, I began to realize that stillness is relative. Although others perceived my lifestyle as constantly being “on the go”, the reality is that I found stillness in every experience along my journey–whether that was traveling to a new place, spending time with friends, or simply driving along the winding roads in my hometown to catch up with my thoughts. The same is true of me today, and this journey is what Fire Life Yoga represents. As I share my passion for adventure through Bikram Yoga, it is my hope that this will become true for you too.
