Inspiring Yogi | Samantha Rex
School is now back in session, air is slowly dropping in temperature and pumpkin flavored things are starting to hit the shelves. Ready or not, here comes fall (officially on 9/22)! We’re looking forward to ushering in this new month with each of you and we are excited to introduce you to our September Inspiring Yogi of the Month – Samantha Rex! Sam works as a part of our awesome front desk team at the Highland Village location and loves to attend Slow Flow and Inspire Vinyasa classes. Read her story below and give her a little love in the comments!
I have been in love with yoga since the age of 16. It calmed me in my teenage years and really kept me grounded. Over the years life got busy and I lost touch with it.
Many years have passed and I have since gotten married and had a child. Part of my journey back to yoga was when I left the sunny shores of South Africa to receive medical treatment for my now five year old daughter. I remember walking in to Inspire Yoga around 2015 to enquire about classes. Already back then I knew that my heart was still drawn to the practice of yoga and the peace it brought me. However, I didn’t join the Inspire Yoga studio and front desk team until this year. Looking for a way to destress, get back into self-awareness and basically get in touch with my body again. I came to Inspire at a time in my life where I was suffering from high anxiety and needed stability.
This community has given me a way to release that anxiety that comes with the lifestyle I live and the hardships of living in a new country with a medically fragile child. I very much enjoy the friendships that are being formed and the community that is so friendly and supportive. I am forever grateful that my heart led me back to yoga and particularly to the Inspire Yoga Studio.
