Hope Hamling has been devoted to a regular yoga practice since 2000. She believes that everybody can do yoga, and that you can be exactly where you are: flexible or unable to touch your toes, calm and centered or a scattered multitasker, healthy or sick. Everyone can do it, and everyone can benefit. Focusing on the breath and linking it with physical movement (no matter how subtle) is an effective way to bring yourself into the moment and retrain your brain and nervous system to restore mental clarity and well-being. Hope graduated from Happy Buddha Yoga's teacher training program under Kelly Kamm. She is a mother of two amazing kids, and a lover of nature, music, poetry, and art. She spends her days seeking out beauty and magic, and guiding others to do the same.
