Regina underwent lap band surgery three years ago and lost 80 pounds. In beginning to train for triathlons once again, she thought it would help her in cross training as a means of warding off sports related injuries of muscles from overuse in triathlon training. She also found yoga to be helpful in managing her stress related to attending graduate school, running a business with her husband, having two young children, and a full time job, in addition to training for triathlons. She soon found many other healthful side benefits such as reduced stress, ability to think more clearly, a more positive outlook, and a sense of overall well-being and happiness. She wants to share these benefits with others and is particularly interested in de-mystifying the yoga experience to newcomers.
