There are so many things I love about teaching group ex yoga. First of all, the students are dedicated and eager to learn. I love getting to know the students through a mutual interest in yoga. Second, the staff at the rec center is amazing! Everyone is so devoted to well being and overall wellness, so it is a very uplifting place to work. And lastly, it is a privilege to be able to share a passion of mine with people of my school.
