Yogi of the Month ~ Kari VonStrohe

How long have you been practicing?   ~4-5 years

Any advice on how to make time for practice with a busy work/family schedule?  

I feel so much better when yoga is a part of my regular routine – both physically and mentally.  That definitely helps me prioritize yoga classes.  And there are so many different classes offered at Yoga Story throughout the day that it makes it easy to integrate it into my schedule.

Describe your yoga practice in one word:  Can I have 2 words??  Stress Relief

How does your yoga practice benefit your other passions/hobbies?  

I run regularly and practicing yoga has helped me to manage my breathing during long runs, as well as make me stronger overall.  Since starting at Yoga Story, I’ve been able to consistently increase my speed and distance.  

Why did you start practicing yoga?  

I was looking for an alternative to running & weight lifting and decided to try yoga.  I was hooked instantly and saw more changes in my body faster than any other workout I’d tried before.   

How does yoga impact your everyday life?  

Yoga has helped me to better manage my breathing – especially in stressful situations – and has helped me to focus more on myself & my journey than where I am in comparison to others.

What misconceptions about yoga, if any, were changed after you started practicing?

Before I started practicing, I thought of yoga as stretching & meditation.  It does provide that benefit, but so much more! I’ve become stronger, pushed myself beyond what I thought I could do and have found a local community in Yoga Story.
