DrishtiYoga came to be in 2016. Trudy finished Yoga Teacher Training program and thought "who's going to hire me, a not so flexible, not so skinny and definitely not so young woman." trudy came to yoga to heal her beat up and what felt like then; ancient body. She realized then that she needed to start her own business and she focused on my target demographics: people like herself.
She chose the name DrishtiYoga because the loose translation of the Sanskrit word drishtiis inner focus. It took not only a lot of drishti, but also the support of some very special people to help her make it through my yoga teacher training.
After a name search, business application and insurance, she set out by offering a few free workshops. Her focus was on people who would say "I can't do yoga"
DrishtiYoga is growing, Her class size is limited to 10 people and she supplies all the props.
She brings passion for yoga to all her classes and she wants people to embrace their bodies. Our bodies have carried us far in our lives, they have been bumped and bruised, broken and beat up, not only from day to day life, but through injuries, hard work, illnesses and accidents.
Every scar, every wrinkle is "the story of you". We are still here...let's embrace our bodies
