We were honored to be featured recently in the online magazine, VoyageLA, as one of the Pasadena area’s inspiring stories!

In the interview, Addie tells the story of Spiral Path Yoga’s genesis, as well as her own beginnings with yoga.

Addie, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.

After I took my first yoga teacher training, I just wanted to dip my toes into teaching without a lot of expectations, so I started a free yoga class in a park. Initially, I thought it would just be for my friends who were kind enough to help me refine my teaching skills, but it ended up being an ongoing class for a year and a half.
