DAMITA CARMICHAEL

Life is full of present surprises!!! That is the mindset I embrace in my personal practice. To be aware of all the changes that the practice of yoga can bring.  Forever presenting a challenge, to breathe, move and expand.

As one endeavors themselves into their practice, one begins to feel the change. The pull of your hamstrings, the strengthening of your core, and the flexibility of your mind, body and soul.

It is my personal belief that yoga is my spiritual calling to life. I can only consider myself to be honored and blessed to bring these sacred teachings to light.

Just Breathe!!
