international champion and yogi extraordinaire

This past weekend the International Yoga Asana Championships took place in Los Angeles, and I’m ecstatic to say we have a WINNER!

Ali Godoy, International Yoga Asana Youth Champion 2013

Ali Godoy, whom I’ve had the privilege to teach and the pleasure to watch her train, won the women’s youth division. I can’t imagine accomplishing that now, much less as a 13-year-old. On top of being super flexible, she’s a wonderfully sweet, bright, humble girl. I’m so proud and happy for her!

For those of you who didn’t watch this past weekend–unfortunately the videos don’t seem to be up on YouTube (yet!). But here is a recording of her performance from Nationals (where she placed 2nd). Hope it provides you some inspiration in your own endeavors, yoga-related or otherwise!
