DO YOU WANT TO PRACTICE YOGA AT HOME, BUT YOU STRUGGLE WITH MOTIVATION?
You have told yourself (for the last few years) that this is the year you will start a consistent home yoga practice.
However, you find it difficult to get on the mat regularly, without guidance from a teacher.
Your kids, work, and other commitments always get in the way. You feel like all you do is give, and never prioritize yourself.
You feel like you lack the well of energy that allows consistent yoga practitioners to get to their mat.
You think, "Am I just lazy? Why can't I trust myself to follow through?"
When you do get onto the mat, only a few minutes in, you run into a "yoga writer's block," and have no idea what to do. It's frustrating, so sometimes, you go months without practicing.
Sometimes, you practice along with a YouTube video, but it is hard to stay in the flow while watching someone else.
When following videos, you are often afraid you'll hurt yourself by doing the postures incorrectly.
What if I was able to create a consistent practice, and regularly feel benefits for both my mind and body?
What if I could weave my practice naturally into my busy routine, so it had it's own slot amongst the chaos?
What if I had a rich vocabulary of postures that I could flow through whenever I wanted (no teacher required)?
What if I fell in love with my practice, and returned to my mat again and again to due to joy instead of obligation?
What if I embraced self-care and could fill my own cup, and put myself first?
What if I felt flexible, strong, and at home in my body?
What if people in my life commented, "You've changed, you seem so much happier?"

Hi! I'm Kimmy.
I created Homegrown Yoga because I've been in your shoes.
For the longest time, I thought I was simply a lazy person.
I hardly had any energy, and could never motivate myself to do anything.
When I found the joy of practicing yoga, and how much it supported my mental and physical health, I was only able to access the benefits with a teacher at a studio.
However, when I got on the mat at home, it just wasn't the same.
I spent just as much time beating myself up about my laziness as I did practicing.
When I went to my Yoga Teacher Training, I had grand plans to practice regularly upon my return. However, what ended up happening?
I still couldn't get myself on the mat.
I didn't practice yoga consistently on my own for almost a year after my training.
Now, I have a regular practice. What changed?
I learned how PERFECTIONISM was holding me back.
I learned that I wasn't LAZY I was actually just UNINSPIRED.
I learned that I actually had a WELL OF ENERGY to create my own practice and just hadn't learned how to harness it.
I discovered that I was trying to practice in ways I thought I needed to, instead of the ways that were in ALIGNMENT with my personal goals and desires.
I learned that beating myself up wasn't the secret. THE SECRET?
Harnessing the proven SCIENCE OF HABITS and PURE JOY instead of force.
“Homegrown Yoga literally changed my perspective on creating my own yoga journey. I wasn’t expected to do retreat style yoga every single day. I became aware of WHY yoga is good for me and figured out HOW to make it part of my day instead of trying to work my day around a practice.”
- Homegrown Yoga student, Anna H.

"The other night, I made it an absolute priority, I got the room ready with soft lighting and the heater on, made myself a herbal tea and I did one of your hour long classes and it was absolute bliss!
I felt amazing afterwards and just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate being a part of Homegrown Yoga. I wish I could practice with you everyday because your classes are beautiful, inspiring and just so relevant! So thank you for what you do, truly grateful."
