30 Jul Veronica’s Inspirations: Welcome New Yogis!
Nothing brings joy to my heart more than introducing yummy things to friends and family! I have found that opening a Yoga studio in Dallas with my hubby has allowed us to bring Yoga to our community and network that have NEVER seen or practiced it.
I think YOGA brings mixed feelings to people, especially cultures. The stereotypes still come top of mind and people identify the practice with religion and with old meditative rituals.
I thought if I could shine some light on the things that inspire me on the mat, it will help ease your mind about trying something new that is good for your mind, body and soul.
What Inspires me?
New Yogis: V12 Yoga has been open for 2 weeks now, and over 60% of the people who have joined us are new to the mat and the practice. Why is this inspiring? Well, it allows me to introduce something that is good for you and your body. Once you show up for one class and give yourself a chance, you WIN. I think the emails and notes I get from people after class bring tears to my eyes. People thank me for bringing the studio to their community and downtown. They share their experience with friends and family and after 2-3 classes, notice a difference in their body, mind and spirit.
Here are a few of our New Yogis and their posts:

What Inspires Me?
Young Yogis: Now this is so very special! Children and young people on the mat only push me to keep reaching out to these circles. The beautiful disposition that these kids carry to the mat and curiosity is so special. Their faces and poses are so innocent and pure. In total we have had over 5 young yogis visit our studio and really relax and enjoy the peace Yoga has brought them during that hour. Chinook, one of our instructors, actually mentors a younger yogie and has changed his life.
