I swear to tell the truth about my training.
After you read the section below (The Author), you might think, “Oh, great. Another fitness professional wants to tell me how to live my life and workout,” but this is not exactly that kind of blog.
Yes, I will probably give advice from time to time, but my way is not always the right way for you. That’s okay.
I will be sharing my workouts, my stats, my experiences, and more.
Hi. I’m Barbara. I am a yoga instructor/wellness professional and have been for around 15 years.
I want you to feel good. My goal is to show you and help you to cultivate a positive relationship between you, your food, your body, and your brain.
I teach yoga regularly at community centers in Nashville. From time to time I do workshops and take private clients, but I love is sharing movement with people of all levels of fitness. Community centers afford me this.
To encourage WHOLE personal wellness.
Mind including but not limited to internal monologue
Body in terms of can you save your own life and not can I pull off wearing that bikini
Spirit whether spirit be defined as soul or attitude or both
