Henry Winslow, International Yoga Champion
Henry’s yoga practice began to spill off his mat and into his life. The advertising profession was a challenge and Henry, a self-described Type A personality, always had a goal…the next thing. Henry said he realized something significant… “there is no use postponing happiness until a future date that might not arrive”. Yoga helped him understand his truth, and he realized in this process that his values and his career were not lining up. He had always had an aversion to medication and yet here he was, working for the pharma industry. He left his corporate job and created his profession around yoga. He came to see teaching yoga as a different kind of healing service he could offer to others, and the work he had carved out made sense to him.
