Rome, Roam...


In Lady Yoga fashion, it is my goal to look back in history to see where we have come from, find the yoga in the moments past to keep us rooted in the present and passionate about where we are going in the future.

Rome wasn’t built in a day. In fact, it’s origin is shrouded in myth and legend. From ancient Greece to twin brothers Romulus and Remus, the truth remains that the city has stood since ancient times and is still one of the most revered, visited, religious and beautiful. In honor of the founding of Rome on April 21st in 753 B.C., let’s explore the idea of Roaming, exploring our truth through our bodies, allowing ourselves the ability to let go of any holding or tension and embracing the freedom, being pioneers of our practices and purpose in doing yoga.
