Happy International Yoga Day! Today on the blog, see how our Athleta Ambassadors are celebrating and what yoga means to them across the country.
“Yoga has taught me that no mountain is too high to climb and that as long as we stay grounded, we can reach for anything.” -Sarah Ezrin
“Yoga has been my best friend…it has been there as I have pushed through several transitions in my life, always embracing me and allowing me to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. Through it all yoga has unlocked my gladiator spirit, a strong woman ready to stand monumental!” -Lauren Buckner
“There is always enough time to stop, ground, and take in beauty and the goodness of the world. Thank you, Yoga, for the unwavering invitation to be present, kind, and empowered in this beautiful world we share.” -Erin Cookston
“The world as a whole could use more love. Namasté.” -Melanie Becker
“We run from place to place, class to class, moment to moment. Yoga gives me a chance to breathe, to own my space. A chance to take a moment to reconnect with my center.” -Nicole Kinzel
“My yoga practice supports my everyday living, from keeping me strong to keep up with my little girls, to teaching me the importance of balance between working hard and taking time for rest, to giving me endless peace as I practice breathing calmly both on and off my mat. Today I celebrate International Yoga Day in my beautiful hometown of Marin with so much gratitude in my heart.” -Grace Yu
“I love yoga because it helps me find peace and stillness in the everyday chaos of to-do lists, responsibilities and the things that are out of my control. Everyday I set aside at least 15 minutes to breathe and do a few yoga stretches which helps me focus, connect to my breath and clear my mind.” -Francine Labiran
“Yoga is important to me for the joy of creativity, soothing my mind and calming my heart.” -Jen Dapper
