I practice yoga because it offers me time for self-reflection and re-charging. By coming to the mat, I can focus on my breath instead of all the thoughts in my head. Mindfulness through yoga is something I strive to carry over into each day.
I’m living my yoga while continuing with my “other life” as a small animal veterinarian. I’ve created downwarddogdvm.com so I can express my two passions, veterinary medicine and yoga. Being a vet is a great profession, but it can be stressful. My hope is that by offering gentle, alignment-based or meditative Yin classes and writing about my yoga journey, it will inspire people to bring what they learn on the mat into their everyday lives.
Through many wonderful teachers, I have learned guidelines for asanas that helped me develop my body awareness. I want to share this powerful knowledge with others and make it accessible to everyone.
