My name is Maria Del Carmen (but I pretty much just get called Maria or Mari by my family members) and I am 20 years old. I’ve got Spanish heritage (so if you were wondering about the name, Spain is where it’s from). I am a big sister to 3 amazing girls and I’m also a godmother. I’m an animal lover and dogs hold a special place in my heart. I have a dog of my own, he’s called Teddy and he’s awesome. I have created this blog to explore my passion for yoga and share my development and learning along the way. All of what I hope to include in this blog will be from different parts of my life all coming together for me to be able to become my best self.

Over the years I have struggled to find a routine or a fitness regime that I can really get into and stick with. For some reason, I was not able to commit to anything for a very long amount of time. Whether this was to do with the fact that I may have become bored with the workouts, making excuses for not working out and getting out of the flow of it, a lack of motivation or other reasons. But, I was not someone who loved exercising, I kind of looked upon a workout like, meh, need to do a workout later. But since rediscovering yoga, I really feel the love for it. No, I haven’t lost a lot of weight from doing it along with a diet or something, that’s not what this is about. Yes, personally I do wish to have a stronger, healthier body (toned tummy would also be nice) but that will come with time, practice and dedication, and I am not going to let the fact that I don’t have that weigh over me. I just LOVE how it makes me feel. Yoga calms me, makes me live in the moment and along the way I build strength and develop my practice by being able to move my body in different ways.

Already this has been a journey for me. A journey of discovery. Firstly, yeah, I discovered yoga was awesome, but it has helped me discover things about me that I didn’t know before. I discovered that things that once limited me don’t anymore. And I think that’s something really special. So I’m here sharing what’s going on in my life as I continue to share my inspiration and dig deep. And if I can inspire anyone along the way to join me on my yoga journey and if I can help anyone achieve their greatness too, then that in itself will be a great achievement for me.

Excited for the future!

Thanks for being here for the journey ❤️
