Where Are You Reading This From?

Namaste, yogis. I'm from Highland Park, IL - about a half hour north of Chicago on Lake Michigan. I'm an economist by profession, and have been reading yogic philosophy and/or practicing yoga since 1998. I'll receive my RYT-200 certification in April and plan to offer yoga to middle schoolers as my karma yoga. I just discovered Yoga by Candace a few days ago, and she's by far my favorite online yogi! In fact, I just don't do yoga videos but find myself wanting to do hers. This website is a phenomenol resource - thanks for sharing your yoga with the world, Candace! Om shanti.

Hi, I'm brand new to yoga and looking for a way to make it into a routine since me a running just will not get along. I'm a college student in Fort Collins, Colorado. I found this site through the 31 day strength challenge that has been floating around pinterest and really want to try it. I've never been to an actual yoga class and doing this solo. It's a little intimidating to try and get the poses right on my own, but with 2 jobs and a full course load at school, it's hard to fit much else in!

Hi there! I'm putting the finishing touches on the forum and going to go through and start some posts and hopefully get a little convo going. 

I love knowing where people are checking in from, so I'll start it up - I'm Candace and I'm reading this from the Czech Republic.  :)

I'm new here and tomorrow I'll start the April challenge! It's a little late and I'll try to catch all the others.

I found you (Candace) and this community some days ago; I must express my sincere admiration for all. I'll be posting and returning all the love I feel here :)

 

I'm from writing from México City!!!

Hello, Shani here, new to YBC and totally hooked! Like my name I am a Mamá of 2 who dances ;) been a dancer my whole life and also have practiced yoga since around 4 years old.. Since having children been delving deeper into my practice and moved to Mexico where my husband and I are opening(next month finally) a studio of dance and exercise featuring yoga ! Enrolled in this forum primarily to talk to other yoga teachers and Candace about classes, terrified actually about making the leap .. But considering I have been a group choreographer for 20'years and teach dance it should be easy right, ;) HA! So reading this by the by from Tlaxcala , Mexico !

Hi! 

 

I am writing from New Brunswick, Canada. I have been practicing yoga on and off for about 5 years. I travelled to Nepal a few years ago and was fortunate enough to be able to stay in a monastery (without electricity and a day long walk up a mountain!) and I think I've been in love with yoga and meditation ever since. I would say I am intermediate or so; I'm loving the monthly challenges and working towards advanced poses. Namaste  :)

Hi all, I'm Ula. I'm from Australia but currently living in London. I've been practising yoga for about 4 years in a really on/off fashion but I'm finally making efforts to make it much more regular. Hopefully I'll be a lot stronger, more flexible and just more grounded by the end of the year.  :)

Hi everybody!

 

I'm Jessica Van Houten from Belgium. I've taken an interest in yoga because it's a great workout for both busy people with packed schedules, but also for people who have more time. I found this forum because I was looking for like-minded people and I'm sure I'll be able to find lots of tips and advice on general yoga things!

 

Nice to meet you all!
