Yogi Of The Week: Lashel

Meet Lashel.

Lashel started practicing yoga 10 years ago, and she says that she still learns something new every time she goes to a class. “That is what I love about yoga; the practice is never ‘finished’. There is so much to learn, and every teacher has his/her own unique qualities. I am inspired by teachers who understand that I am me, I am not like everyone else, and my practice is mine and doesn't look like everyone else’s.”

She still remembers the first time she shared an OM with a large group of people in a yoga studio. She felt the vibration of those OMs running through her and for a split second, she felt almost frightened. Then all she felt was joy spreading throughout her entire body. Even now Lashel still gets a tingle of excitement just before the first OM in class.

Lashel is passionate about taking care of the world we live in. She feels that the money we spend is our most powerful tool for change. “I try to think about the dollars I spend, and make them count for the things I want to see more of. I don't want my hard earned money to count for or invest in things that harm the world I live in.”

We loved learning about Lashel. And we want to learn more about you!
