I began practicing yoga about 6 years ago right before college. I’d [go on] Youtube [to look up] flows and go to hot yoga every now and then when I felt like I needed a break from the gym or if I hit a particularly stressful time during the semester. I wasn’t able to go consistently with the busyness/sporadic [nature] of college but I was very aware of and reluctant to forget the strength and serenity it brought me. In the past few years, my main form of exercise has been running and weight lifting at the gym. Recently, I had a bad tendinitis flare up while training for the half marathon and it occurred to me that this would be a great opportunity to get back into yoga. I needed something that would ease me into movement without being overly strenuous. I’d attended Citizen’s community classes on Sunday in the past and enjoyed it and decided to get a membership so I could go more often. I love the variety of classes offered. Nick’s R & R class is just what I need to ease myself into the week and set my perspective on a Monday. Lauren’s slow burn class is my other favorite. I’m continuously pushing myself during that class and enjoy her energy throughout it! I’m looking forward to practicing more yoga at Citizens and trying out other classes!

Citizen Yoga Teacher Training is not a lesson in “paint by numbers.” It is an experience that assists trainees in mastering brush strokes, which they then use to become an artist of their own practice and teaching.
