Missy is passionate about fitness - it's been a core part of her daily life. Missy believes it is essential for the mind, body and overall health and wellness. Her regimes include running (with her dog), Pilates, various cross-training routines and playing sports with her family. Missy did Yoga on her 'rest days' for a good stretch. It wasn't until she was diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder in 2014 and her therapist pushed her to do yoga more consistently that she discovered that Yoga is Magic. It is more than just moving and stretching the body. When practiced with consistency it changes us physically and mentally, allowing us to live the best version of ourselves. Yoga is the whole package.
The mental and physical benefits Missy experienced from Yoga have been transformational. Yoga has helped improve her performance in running, golf, tennis and most importantly in LIFE. It has inspired her and continues to teach her to be present and mindful.
