Simone spent much of her life playing catch-up with her four older siblings.
With so many role models to follow, it was hard for her to find something that was uniquely her own. Then, after years of resisting yoga because she was “not flexible enough,” she developed a practice at the urging of a good friend. She found her practice helped her connect with what is unique to her body and spirit.
Simone completed the inaugural 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training at Be Here Now Yoga.
Favorite Style of Yoga
I love sweaty, powerful flow yoga that ends in deep relaxing meditation. The best way to handle what is going on in my head is by first exhausting my body.
My friend Mara James who pushed me into practicing. Without the encouragement, I might never have found myself through yoga.
