Gladys is a wife, daughter, sister, aunt, friend, healer, and provider. She first met yoga class in the year 2000 while in college. It was new and different from the fast-paced workouts she had previously experienced. It wasn’t until 2013 that she considers she officially became a yogi; even though she realize it then. Exercising is something she was consistent about, whether it was through dancing, swimming, aerobics. She realized yoga was different. It started with the very physical sensation of stretching and sweating. That went on for years as she practiced Bikram and Vinyasa. Then came the spiritual component. It seeped in slowly until her teacher training experience. Then it was like an explosion. Universal truths. These realizations about the world, as she knew it. Now she feels privileged to share what she has learned with the community. She is excited that she can hold space, in a new way, for anyone who walks through the Lighthouse Yoga & Wellness doors.
