Born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, I am a learner working to further the balance of physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional health. Yoga has helped me to gain strength, balance, flexibility, healing, peace, and restoration. I have been practicing yoga since 2008, and now as an experienced certified teacher I find purpose in sharing all that yoga has given me with my students on and off the mat. Currently pursuing a doctorate degree in occupational therapy, I am also an advocate for equality, social justice, and the recognition of natural beauty. The purpose of my life is to connect others the joy I have found through a relationship with God. He is good! email@example.com, @yogabygrace_ .
