From a young age, Sydney had always been drawn to health and fitness. As a child, she would bike with her dad while he trained for marathons and alternate between various sports. Later on, running and snowboarding quickly became her favorite way to exercise, until at age 19 when she tore a ligament in her knee. At that point, it became clear it was time to find a more sustainable practice that would aid in the recovery process and that would still be effective in overall strength building. That was when Sydney turned to yoga, which she had been practicing weekly as a stress-relief activity in high school.
After educating herself a bit more on what yoga as a whole entailed, she immediately came to love the practice, which can be greatly attributed to being inspired by so many wonderfully talented and knowledgeable yoga practitioners out there. One of the greatest appeals, of course, was the variety of physical and mental benefits yoga offered; increased strength, flexibility, circulation, reduced stress… But even beyond that, the fact that yoga is a practice Sydney knew she could take with her and continue for the rest of her life. To her, the most incredible aspect of yoga is the fact that it is one of the few practices that you can continue to improve at with age on physical, mental, and spiritual levels.
Sydney was certified as an RYT-200 Vinyasa instructor in 2016. Since then she has obtained her SPA Yoga Certification in 2017, has attended various yoga retreats and workshops, taught regularly at studios, private classes, and more! She is always open to sharing the authentic side of her yoga journey and helping others improve their practice on all levels, which can be followed on her Instagram: @yogawithsyd
