Hope Hood opened Abide Yoga in July of 2014 and has been devoted to the practice of yoga since 2000. She believes that everybody can do yoga, and that you can start 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 is one of the best ways to achieve mental clarity. Through the years, the practice of yoga has been her heart's home, providing a creative outlet, a shelter from the demands of life, a learning laboratory, and a lens through which to view the world. Her goal as a teacher is to provide her students with the caring support needed to face life's challenges. Hope is also a huge fan of the Coen Brothers movie The Big Lebowski and sees many parallels between the practice of yoga and the life of The Dude. Truly, the practice of yoga has tied her whole life together. The name of the studio and the class titles are inspired by the parts of the film.
