It has been an amazing and humbling journey to watch Abhyaasa grow from the seed of an intention, to the manifestation of a physical space that, with dedicated practice (and a tad bit of blood, sweat and tears), cultivated the intention and sent out a vibration of love to others. Now we have a beautiful yoga garden that flourishes from the nurturing of many. No matter what the weather outside, our studio is bathed in light-- the light that shines from all who share their practices. (I'll here end the garden metaphor, but you have to admit, we are a magical place!)
It has been my wish for a long while to share some of the journeys of our yoga family with one another but, as many wishes, I just needed to make the time to put this into action. Now we are blessed to have a beautiful yogini who loves to meet people, loves yoga, loves our studio, and loves to write! Thanks to Mallory Bales, we will have a new section of our blog dedicated to getting to know one another better. Perhaps you will get to know Mallory in a class. Thank you to all for sharing your stories!

Namaste! My name is Mallory Bales and I am a young woman on a mission to know myself. My life has become a dedication to yoga and self-realization. I went to Burning Man the summer of 2014 and a huge awakening took place that led me to follow my higher self. I decided to put my stuff in storage, sell my belongings, sell my car, and go on a journey to the unknown.
I realized how deep of a passion I had for the teachings of yoga and decided I wanted to explore the world further and follow the path of yoga. I have changed every aspect of my life in the past year to resonate with my soul’s higher purpose. My next step is to travel to India in the fall for an asana teacher training and then start school for holistic psychology.
Along with my extreme passion for yoga, I have a deep passion for writing. I am beyond grateful to help share the passion of yoga of the Abhyaasa community. Each one of our voices and stories helps us grow that much deeper into our authentic selves, which ends up creating a more loving world! Sat nam : )
A space that nurtures connection, spiritual growth and physical well-being.
