I teach at the Art of Yoga Project. The Art of Yoga Project brings yoga to girls who are in juvenile centers. I also just began teaching yoga to female inmates who are hoping to turn their lives around at the San Mateo Women’s Correctional Center. My goal is to bring light and happiness -- something powerful to everybody I meet. Whether that's sharing a smile, teaching them how to do a downward dog, or inspiring them in another way. I hope to do that every single moment.
When I think about what I would like to leave behind, I would like people to remember me as a happy person. It sounds like a simple word, but a happy person brings happiness to others. When you see me, I hope you feel happy and that I don’t leave you feeling less empowered. It’s something that I’m hopefully bringing to my family: a good mother, a good wife, a good humanitarian. What I can, I do to further the success of others. And if that is just leaving them in their happiest self, then I think that is the greatest legacy I can leave behind.
