consultant and I was traveling after

9
00:00:28,170 –> 00:00:31,440
college I was always curious to try yoga

10
00:00:31,440 –> 00:00:33,870
I was 60 pounds heavier so I really

11
00:00:33,870 –> 00:00:36,180
wanted to connect to the practice so I

12
00:00:36,180 –> 00:00:38,760
bought a yoga mat at Target and started

13
00:00:38,760 –> 00:00:40,140
going in different classes across the

14
00:00:40,140 –> 00:00:42,360
country and I discovered that I liked

15
00:00:42,360 –> 00:00:45,480
vinyasa the flow of yoga and then I fell

16
00:00:45,480 –> 00:00:47,640
in love with yoga whenever I became

17
00:00:47,640 –> 00:00:49,650
injured as a runner I wasn’t listening

18
00:00:49,650 –> 00:00:53,100

19
00:00:53,100 –> 00:00:56,550
find my core and so heated power vinyasa

00:00:56,550 –> 00:01:00,059
aka yoga that is kick-ass quick and more

21
00:01:00,059 –> 00:01:03,000
importantly very regimented totally

22
00:01:03,000 –> 00:01:04,830

23
00:01:04,830 –> 00:01:06,810
expression being able to give that to

24
00:01:06,810 –> 00:01:11,159

00:01:17,869 –> 00:01:21,180
simple it’s it’s a the hamstring stretch

28
00:01:21,180 –> 00:01:24,450
in the balancing series don’t know what

29
00:01:24,450 –> 00:01:26,850

00:01:30,270 –> 00:01:33,030
looking up leg up and I also like to

32
00:01:33,030 –> 00:01:34,859
take yoga photos when I’m very travel

33
00:01:34,859 –> 00:01:37,310
across country

34
00:01:37,909 –> 00:01:41,329
what made me do level 1 is because I had

35
00:01:41,329 –> 00:01:43,759
the suti owner at big fire Yoga is

36
00:01:43,759 –> 00:01:46,640
amazing and soaz the rest of the crew

37
00:01:46,640 –> 00:01:48,170
that teaches there and a lot of them

38
00:01:48,170 –> 00:01:50,299
especially the leaders had done level 1

39
00:01:50,299 –> 00:01:53,149
and level 2 and just had just need a

40
00:01:53,149 –> 00:01:54,709
profound difference in my life so I

41
00:01:54,709 –> 00:01:57,079
wanted that training so I could go and

42
00:01:57,079 –> 00:02:00,500
really model them

43
00:02:00,500 –> 00:02:02,870
what children for me after level 1 was

44
00:02:02,870 –> 00:02:05,750
that I got asked to teach class at the

45
00:02:05,750 –> 00:02:07,970
studio that I was currently at and I

46
00:02:07,970 –> 00:02:09,560
taught there for two years so having the

47
00:02:09,560 –> 00:02:12,560
opportunity to teach was huge what also

48
00:02:12,560 –> 00:02:15,350
shifted for me was really being in my

49
00:02:15,350 –> 00:02:19,400
own badassery if you will having that

50
00:02:19,400 –> 00:02:21,170
sense of strength and confidence in the

51
00:02:21,170 –> 00:02:23,570
yoga class for me it was my bigger

52
00:02:23,570 –> 00:02:25,580
challenge was in my corporate world I

53
00:02:25,580 –> 00:02:27,440
work in technology and in cybersecurity

54
00:02:27,440 –> 00:02:29,480
was being that same self expressed

55
00:02:29,480 –> 00:02:31,580
person in the work environment so after

56
00:02:31,580 –> 00:02:33,680
teacher training after level one I

57
00:02:33,680 –> 00:02:35,150
really got the power and the confidence

58
00:02:35,150 –> 00:02:38,120
to start a non-profit for diversity in

59
00:02:38,120 –> 00:02:43,160
technology what I’m creating at level

60
00:02:43,160 –> 00:02:46,280
two here in Manila outside of letting go

61
00:02:46,280 –> 00:02:48,739
of panic of no cell service and no Wi-Fi

62
00:02:48,739 –> 00:02:53,870
and because let’s be real is as I’m

63
00:02:53,870 –> 00:02:56,420
creating an aggression I am integrating

64
00:02:56,420 –> 00:02:59,750
Who I am as a yoga just what I stand for

65
00:02:59,750 –> 00:03:02,690
and like taking all labels off so I can

66
00:03:02,690 –> 00:03:04,630
be whoever I get to be in whatever

67
00:03:04,630 –> 00:03:07,459
environment that I am and whether that’s

68
00:03:07,459 –> 00:03:09,830
what family or being leader in my

69
00:03:09,830 –> 00:03:13,760
industry being a yoga teacher and really

70
00:03:13,760 –> 00:03:15,950
a leader being yoga student so that I

71
00:03:15,950 –> 00:03:17,390
just get to be Who I am in all

72
00:03:17,390 –> 00:03:20,810
environments so integration

73
00:03:20,810 –> 00:03:23,630

like Nathan Harrington at big power yoga

85
00:03:51,959 –> 00:03:54,850
the belief in the stance to be for other

86
00:03:54,850 –> 00:03:58,209
people and to be unstoppable and

87
00:03:58,209 –> 00:03:59,830
