What inspires you?  What feeds your energy and happiness? 

For me, of course, my children, husband, family and friends inspire me.  My heart and soul are filled with love for them and gratitude for having them in my life.  I love being a wife, mother, daughter, niece and, friend to all these amazing people but that is who I am to them.  Who am I to myself?  Well, yoga shows me that.  It is where I found my deep down, shining light, source of energy, INSPIRATION!  And guess what, I’m pretty sure it also makes me a better wife, mother, daughter, niece and, friend.


This blog is where my love for all those roles and my love of yoga spill over because I am so inspired, I can’t help but share.  Here are a few of my personal inspirations so far on my journey…  More to come on each one of these!
