As I am sure many of you know after reading my earlier posts, I LOVE YOGA.
Today I want to dig a lot deeper into my love for yoga / how I got so involved / what it does for me / etc, etc.
Not only that, I want to introduce you to one of my favorite instructors at the yoga studio I go to (shoutout: Corepower yoga in Fair Oaks) Niki!
Niki Movaghar is a local yoga teacher babe in Fair Oaks CA, age 24, so friendly, so bright, so FUN to be around & total GIRLBOSS.
Niki ditched her 9-5 job long ago to pursue her dream of teaching yoga & most importantly to be HAPPY, to be her most authentic SELF. ❤
I met Niki when I took her class and immediately knew I wanted to be friends. ❤
That’s the thing about the yogi community, all the teachers will most likely become your friends because they are so cool and sooo genuinely HAPPY (at least where I yoga at)!
So, I asked you guys on twitter, instagram, & snapchat what you wanted me to ask Niki for our Q & A so I can film a video and share all the yoga secrets!
Niki & I got together at Corepower & chatted all about yoga– the do’s, the don’ts, how-to-start, how to take it up a notch, at-home yoga options, our personal stories & we show some yoga with weights (my personal favorite).
I love yoga so I knew it was so important to share this wonderful practice with all of you! ❤
Yoga for me, really clears my mind and connects me to my body at the deepest level. I like feeling my body, it makes me feel more in tune with absolutely everything.
Yoga reminds me to take deep breaths as well, which is CRUCIAL when working out, fit babes!! Do you realize how you breathe? Is it short? Deep? Are you not even thinking about it?!? We go into all of this.
The best part about yoga, there is such thing as a YOGA booty. Like, glute growth by doing YOGA. Niki & I will also go in detail about this too because everyone needs to hop on board like tooooday!
So watch our video below, grab a snack or two or three because it is a lengthy one and please enjoy, when you are done read below for instructions on a GIVEAWAY with Niki ❤ ❤ ❤ See ya soon!
