Phelan met yoga in 2005 when she was working as a bicycle messenger in Chicago. Yoga brought her the peace and presence that helped her balance the demands of her job. She was hooked. She moved to Athens in 2010 with her band, and her relationship with yoga deepened. Phelan was inspired to receive her 200 hour certification from Yogaful Day in 2013 and is currently seeking her 500 hour certification from Asheville Yoga Center.
On yoga, she says, “I love yoga, it is my best friend. It shows me how to love myself in the best way so I can love others in the best way. It teaches me that the content is in the transitions, the more difficult, the more important. Yoga gives me a very special way of expression which enables me to translate and enhance the rest of my reality. I feel so grateful to be able to give yoga to other people, it takes my experience next level and blows my mind every time.”
