Inspired by John Berg's approach to yoga, Lourdes joined Samyama as the first General Manager, and was responsible for the initial operations infrastructure, accounting and boutique setup. Lourdes now handles back office work such as accounting, bookkeeping and payroll.
Lourdes finds that yoga helps her feel comfortable and better able to accept things as they come. Having once perceived herself to be rather uncoordinated, she finds each progressive step on her yoga journey to be a satisfying achievement. She is perpetually growing through yoga. She feels more physically alive as a result of her practice and she believes yoga can indeed make one "ageless."
