Are you anti social? I mean, anti social media? Think it’s a time waster? An isolator? A hilarious web of never ending beach and cat photos? It’s easy to think that. Sometimes. Today, however, I’d like to share a story about how Instagram connected Oregon, Kentucky and Yoga in an amazing collaboration.
I stumbled across an Instagram post in July 2015. It was something about yoga, Oregon and “How Dreams become Reality”. Of course this drew me in and I discovered she was a coffee loving, mom/wife, yoga teacher who worked in law enforcement. Further intrigued, I started following this coffee-lovin’ soul and discovered that she and her family were on a journey to move to Oregon… from Kentucky! We reached out and invited her to swing by Love Yoga if they happen to find themselves in this area. They did… and she did! Not only did they find themselves in this area… they moved right here to the Willamette Valley! (I like to think we had a little something to do with that… and she lets me think that). ; ) She practiced with us at Love and subbed a few Power classes for us and right away everyone fell in love with Sabrina. And it’s so easy to see why… Sabrina infuses love into every one of her classes. At first people in her classes were talking about her adorable accent… the conversations quickly focused on the surprisingly enjoyable core work in the Gentle class… then they talked about her relaxing assists in Savasana. Sabrina definitely brings her Southern charm to everything she does… but it’s her Sweet Oregon Soul that keeps ’em coming back.
Her journey to Oregon wasn’t all roses and rainbows. Leaving family, friends and coworkers to venture out west in search of coffee, yoga, mountains and oceans took a lot of courage, faith and adventure on her part…and her family. They are all three a true inspiration to living the life you dream. She is an amazing example of How Dreams become Reality. We are honored, inspired and just downright happy to have her here! Thanks Sabrina… and Thanks Instagram!
So I really appreciate all the amazing connections we’ve made through Love Yoga being social…
