In 2015 I left The ArcView Group to follow some kind of calling. Upon my departure, I received all kinds of reflections about my leap into the unknown. Some saw the move as brave and bold, others questioned my motive and considered the decision crazy. I mostly embodied bravery, but at times I did feel crazy. To leave the firm was to walk away from an investor community worth several billion dollars, a family shaped largely by my own heart and soul. At the time, I didn’t really know where I was going, but in my heart of hearts I knew that my work with ArcView had came to fruition and that it was time to move on.
Ten years ago, I walked into the gym and took a yoga class as an exercise class. At the time, I didn’t know it then, but that “exercise class” would later become a principal force helping to carve out my life’s path.
Yoga is one of the greatest tools for strengthening the mind/body connection while simultaneously deepening one’s spiritual practice. Since my certification in 2012, the number of yoga practitioners has increased from 20.4 million to more than 36 million; leaving the marketplace both competitive and desirable.
