I encountered my first yoga class over 10 years ago while training for the Avon Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk. This 60 mile walk, starting at Lake Lanier Islands in Buford, Georgia and ending 3 days later in Atlanta, Georgia raises money for breast cancer awareness. The group of friends I was walking with hired a yoga instructor to help us balance our 10-15 mile a day training walks with another form of exercise. Although I was hooked after my first yoga session, I did not start taking yoga classes for another 3 years. I have been studying and practicing yoga for 6 years now and have just begun to teach.
