Why Let It Be Yoga
I have unlocked the keys to a space that holds the 15th yoga studio in Charlottesville Virginia. I am also in the process of working with many different populations. While I run Let It Be Yoga I also teach yoga to government officials at the Federal Executive Institute in Charlottesville. I teach a men's yoga class at Farmington Country Club. I have a budding yoga relationship with the Silver Chair Company, The Women's Initiative, and even the Local Charlottesville Library.
Let It Be Yoga is still in the first year transition period of becoming a profitable business. We love, love, love all of the future and possibilities, but are still laying the foundation for greater ability to GIVE BACK.
Unlocking the door to Let It Be Yoga was the biggest stepping stone. Embracing the idea that the business is not necessarily what I expected is the current and most exciting hurdle I have ever come across in my 27 years of life in this world.
I love yoga, and all I want to do is spread the message that we all #fit yoga. Our emails for the studio are team-member@LIBY.fit. Fit means many things. The first that comes to mind for most people is to be actively fit. After that what comes to mind for me is that everyone has a place to FIT INTO community. We are all important. We all have a place. The third is that yoga fits into EVERY body, every life. The forth is that we do not have to FIT the societal mold. I sure don't. I am a 27 year old female from NJ with a masters of Educational Psychology: Applied Developmental Science. I have not fit in many worlds, but I FIT in yoga, and so do you. The fifth is that yoga can FIT anywhere into your schedule especially with the help of tech. Sixth, your practice gets to FIT where-ever you are in your body TODAY, not yesterday, not even tomorrow. Warrior 2, standing in the present. The seventh (not a coincidence that there are seven chakras) is that we are all compassionate, loving beings who fit as one.
Community was the basis for the start of Let It Be Yoga. I have been lucky enough to be blessed with wonderful friends, love, family, and people who are not by blood related but I know are there if the need is there. I love feeling support, and giving support. LIBY team’s continual goal is to pay this support forward to the whole community. We pride ourselves on giving back to the community with a yoga event every month where 100% of the proceeds go towards the Women's Initiative. This is an organization aimed to help bruised and battered women to get back on their feet or handle where they are in the moment. We involve other community organizations too because we are stronger together. At the end of the month we will host an event with Charlottesville Jujitsu, Lululemon, The Women's Initiative to help educate people on what they can do in the face of all this terror. We want to help their light shine as brightly as it possibly can. We are always looking for the common thread that ties us all together.
Kristin’s Most Inspirational Teacher
Sofia D of Mosaic Yoga in San Diego California. Sofia came to me because I needed to recognize that EVERYONE is our teacher. Students, parents, peers, yoga teachers, people you meet on the street. She taught me to open my heart to the world, and I am eternally grateful. Heart above head. Thank you Sofia. I feel you and all of your light in my heart daily.
