Inspired by author Stephen R. Covey’s quote, “Strength lies in differences, not in similarities,” Arlen began his yoga journey in the summer of 2014 appreciating that yoga accepts all bodies no matter how different they are. Intimidated by the chances of surrounding himself with perfectly, sculpted bodies, he attended his first class realizing quickly that being “on the mat” erased all fear, doubt, and judgment within him letting him spread with confidence, lengthen with strength, and fold with gratitude. Yoga brought more to him than the physical and mental advantages; with career relocations, he found friends, family, and community through yoga—a healthy support system to help him grow as an individual, personally and professionally.
When he's not on the mat, Arlen enjoys to cook, whether it is a complicated or uncomplicated process. “The simplicity of a grilled cheese sandwich that satisfies your hunger and offers comfort can remind you that life does not always have to be a stressful beef bourguignon."
