Marquela Stevenson: I came to yoga as an adult, beginning my practice in 2013. After less than a year of practice it was clear to me that I needed to make yoga a lifelong practice. I received my certification from Bikram’s Yoga College of India in Thailand in the fall of 2014. Having struggled to feel at home in my body for years, I am motivated to practice by the mental peace and the feeling of being fully physically present that my practice gives me. I teach primarily to share this with others and try to reflect that in my teaching. I am currently exploring the wide world of yoga and enjoying feeling new ways to move.
