What motivates you to practice today?
My motivation to practice today is simple-I just can’t live without Yoga! As a biological mother of two sons, ages 7 and 12, a legal guardian of two additional sons, ages 7 and 11, a husband, a full-time job as an Electrical Engineer, and the owner of PIES Fitness Yoga Studio, I must practice in order to stay balanced and centered. The PEACE that I receive from daily practice allows me to be at my best in all aspects of my life.
What effect has yoga had on your students?
Yoga at PIES Fitness has helped so many students to learn how to be at peace in all aspects of their lives. PIES Fitness students are constantly sharing how Yoga has positively changed their lives. The students rave about the community that exists at PIES Fitness.
If you are offering karma classes, how/why did you choose the charity?
All of the classes at PIES Fitness are karma classes as the proceeds are used to provide for the day-to-day living expenses of the two sons in which my husband and I serve as legal guardians. We chose to become legal guardians to these kids because their grandmother (our biological kids babysitter of 9 years), who had custody of them, passed away suddenly three years ago. Their grandmother was an awesome role model in terms of helping anyone that had a need. PIES Fitness exists in her honor.
What do you enjoy most about the yoga community in Virginia?
I most enjoy the fact that there are so many types of yoga to choose from. There is so much yoga to choose from that everyone is able to choose the environment that best suits their needs. This so cool!
PIES Fitness prides itself in being a patient and community oriented studio open to all skill levels. We would love to have you join us for some awesome classes. Namaste!
