It all started when I broke my back in a military training accident almost two years ago.
After an eight week recovery on the couch unable to move, I went on to special operations assessment and selection. Through some of the worst pain I’ve ever endured, I made it to the other side of selection.
Shortly after I returned, a friend turned me onto Yoga to help cope with my incessant back pain. Nearly two years later, I’m not only feeling less pain, but I’m fully and wholeheartedly committed to my practice.
The goal of American Yogi is to share that experience with others, be they military, civilian, first responder, nine-to-fiver who needs the love and gratitude Yoga can provide.
Thank you for taking a moment to read a little bit about how we came about. Excited to help do for others what Yoga has done for me, and to embrace all the good that our practice holds.
