Kacy Pleasants is leading Yoga On Tap on July 19th
...and the Charlotte Independence professional soccer team is coming to do yoga with us!
"I entered the door of yoga to find yet another way to exercise, and lose weight. It wasn’t long before I realized it was so much more than that. I could let go of my destructive over-ambition and settle in to a practice that kept my body healthy while allowing myself to relax in to the beauty that is my life. I believe we are given hardships so that we can have compassion and help others who struggle with similar things.
I struggle with anxiety, and yoga has helped me to just let go. I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in November of 2011, and yoga helped me to stay focused on my breath and my recovery. I am now in remission and I truly feel that yoga is part of that recovery.
I have been practicing yoga since 2007, and teaching since 2010. I am still amazed and inspired by the power of the practice. I feel that it is a vehicle for self-discovery, and a journey that teaches us to connect with our breath but also to one another on a deeper level.
When I teach, I try to create a space in my classes for students to gain a deeper understanding of a pose and of themselves. My classes are both physically and mentally challenging, but are taught with a lightness and humor that almost allow you to forget you are working so hard.
