If you are already a member, you have likely seen a handful of names pop-up over and over on our Members Only Facebook group. If you’re not yet a member, you’re missing out! (...and can learn more about our program here).
For our third Meet the Team featured post, we introduce…
When Abigail isn’t helping the rest of us to do bad-ass ninja sh*t, she’s a Geophysicist, a belly dancer, a skirt belly dancer, and an instructor. She’s a belly-dancing yoga ninja with a PhD in geodynamics (*mind-blown*).
Abigail is originally from England, but has also lived in France, the United States, and Norway, and speaks all of these native languages.
During the COVID lockdown, she celebrated both her 40th birthday AND her 10th wedding anniversary to her beloved husband, who works as a glass blower. Together they have a sweet, energetic four-year old son.
While Abi had been working on her PhD, yoga had been suggested to her to combat the stress associated with her intense workload. Shortly thereafter, Abi took a class with a particular instructor teaching advanced poses. She left knowing that she wanted to be a yoga teacher, but had put off teacher training for many years.
In early 2019, Abi was diagnosed with breast cancer, having received the news on her son’s second birthday. After a period of uncertainty, Abi’s prognosis was bright and she decided to stop procrastinating and completed her YTT that same year.
In the summer of 2020, Abigail found YFS through Facebook, attended the first free training, and purchased the program as soon as enrollment opened for the full course. Abigail was the very first member of Yogi Flight School!
Clearly, Nathania made an impact on Abi, and Abi on her because in 2021, Nathania asked Abi to become an official YFS Community Ninja.
