Hey! I’m Camryn, a gypsy soul and wild at heart kind of girl living in Capital Hill, D.C. with my husband. I’m madly in love with the great outdoors, and I would hug just about any tree or baby animal without hesitation. I believe in collecting experiences, not things, and I like making extraordinary memories from ordinary days. I’m crazy about all things related to music, art, and astrophysics (nerd alert), and I go through at least a couple books a week (double nerd alert). I’m also exceptionally good at drinking wine, but sadly can’t add that skill to my resume.
WHY I PURSUE THE FIT LIFE: I love that our bodies can heal naturally. Health and healing are two of my great passions. After being diagnosed with Lupus, I experienced first hand the power of clean eating and yoga. When western medicine meets holistic living, the combination is powerful.
Before I got into yoga, I received degrees in piano performance, English, and nursing, because obviously I was pretty into taking a million credits per semester. Once I found yoga, I became fascinated by how the body can naturally heal. I believe when Western medicine meets holistic methods, it’s a powerful combination. I went on to obtain certifications in naturopathy (the study of holistic health), nutrition, and herbology, and I use that holistic knowledge as the foundation for living a naturally fit life.
WHY YOGA: Yoga allows us to find a place of deep spiritual peace and a connection to God. For me, my practice is my little place to have quiet time with God. Some people do this in church, others in a field; I do it on a mat. I thoroughly believe we all have incredible potential and great worth; truly, God has wonderful plans for each of us. I firmly believe in the healing power of yoga. My personal yoga teacher and mentor is Kino MacGregor, and I consider it a tremendous honor to learn from her and share some of my training. In addition to my 200 hour training, I also have done 100 hour training course with Kino and Tim Feldmann, 25 hour teacher training with Seane Corn and extensive teacher training with MarieBelle PR. Like all things in life, yoga is an area where we never arrive, we only grow in grace.
Thanks for stopping by! Feel free to share what you’re learning or ways you’re living a naturally fit life. There is so much to love and enjoy each day, and I fully appreciate that we can taste and see and know that life is good. In fact, it’s beautiful.
