"I am here to be human and share tools of wellbeing. I love sharing information about yoga as a lifestyle and helping people to realize just how much power they have to create more peace and balance for themselves. I love telling people “if they can breathe, they can do yoga.” It’s always rewarding to expand people’s perspectives of yoga beyond asana. Yoga philosophy and lifestyle are so much more in reach than many realize and I live to get yoga into people’s lives on and off their mats. I love getting yoga into people’s homes, hearts, and minds."

- Sam

I am passionate about sharing my own journey to live as an example and giving space for others to share their own journeys without judgment.

The lifestyle of yoga saved my life countless ways, countless times. I wish to share it with all who have interest.
