This edition of our Yogi Spotlight series is different because it doesn't highlight just one yogi - it highlights a whole community of them. Get to know Yoga for First Responders' goals, mission and plans for the future from their Development Director Brenna Vidal!
"I have absolutely broken the shackles of society through the combined healing process that meditation and yoga have given me! [...] I believe fully in myself and my dreams, and work hard to achieve them and make them a reality. We all have the power to do so, what’s keeping you from being limitless?"
Yoga - to me - is being present. It’s putting headphones in, but not playing the music, just hearing my body, and the music within. Previously being a dancer, I love seeing where my soul leads my body and which motions react or soothe specific emotions. Yoga to me isn’t a workout regimen, it is a way to align my mind, body, and soul.
Finding yoga was probably one of the best things that could have happened to me during such a crazy time in my life. It has allowed me to overcome so much, and shown me that there’s no limit to what I can do or accomplish. It has allowed me to feel comfortable as my authentic self.
