ZARA ATHLETICZ. By Alex

ALEX DICKINSON / I STARTED DOING YOGA WHEN I WAS 17, AT A LITTLE STUDIO ON FRONT STREET IN MY HOMETOWN. I LEARNED THAT YOGA IS SO MUCH MORE THAN PHYSICAL EXERCISE. IT’S PHILOSOPHY FOR MIND, BODY AND SOUL.

NOT LONG AFTER THAT, MY FAMILY LOST OUR HOME AND I HAD TO LIVE IN MY CAR FOR MOST OF MY LAST YEAR AT HIGH SCHOOL. YOGA GAVE ME THE TOOLS AND THE STRENGTH TO CARRY ON AND FIND FREEDOM. NOW, MY MISSION IN LIFE IS TO SHARE WHAT’S GIVEN ME SO MUCH. THERE’S THIS OLD FASHIONED IDEA THAT MEN DON’T DO YOGA. BUT YOGA HAS ALWAYS BEEN FOR EVERYONE. I WANT PEOPLE TO COME AND SEE HOW COOL AND HOW MUCH FUN IT IS, I WANT TO MAKE IT MORE INCLUSIVE.

I AM AND ALWAYS WILL BE, SIMPLY A YOGA STUDENT. IT MAKES ME MORE MINDFUL AND COMPASSIONATE. IT GIVES ME PEACE AND THAT’S SOMETHING WE ALL NEED.
