She’s focused on building community through equality.

You don’t need to walk tomorrow, right?

Thursday, January 16: A 5th generation Southern Floridian, Chad started practicing yoga 6 years ago when the pain and stiffness following his 3rd ACL replacement motivated him to find a long term proactive approach to rehabilitating his injuries. Practicing regularly quickly became a part of his weekly routine as he saw positive results and greatly increased his quality of living. As he deepened his practice, he got much more than expected when he noticed his stress levels decrease, his gratitude for life increased, and his personal relationships strengthen. Chad finds purpose in sharing the practice with others, as a path to mindful and conscious living. He hopes to help others find the same physical, mental and spiritual freedom that he has found through his own practice.
