Ten years ago I was drawn to yoga for the Physical benefits. Yet, through practice and training every day I became aware of the others beneficial aspects of yoga. Each step of my journey has helped me to developing my own practice, teacher trainings and through Svadyaya (self-study) of it all. It became much more clear that through yoga I was transforming myself into a better person not only in a physical aspect but also positive transformative growth emotionally and mentally. It is because of this transformation why I would love to share this powerful practice with others. Moreover, the beauty of yoga played a big roll while I was an expected mother. It allowed me to connect deeply with my baby, reduced stress, and tension, as well as keeping me in great shape.
Kyle joined Primary CrossFit in 2016, having recently moved to Uptown. He was immediately hooked, not only by the challenging workouts and satisfying results, but also the community and new friendships that came along with it. Sports and physical activity were a constant in Kyle’s early years but started to fade away post-college, outside of the occasional lifting session at a big box gym and intramural sports leagues. Discovering CrossFit, staying committed to fitness, and eating clean has led him to be in better shape now than at any point in his 20s. Favorite WOD = Bradshaw Favorite movement = Deadlift Least favorite movement = Toes to bar. Attend a class with Kyle and you’ll get a killer workout, solid instruction, all set to the tune of hip hop, country, or some good old HS weight room music!
