How did you get started teaching?

Namaste Beautiful  People! My name is Ebony Smith a*k*a "The Ghetto Guru" certified Yoga Instructor and Wellness Coach.

 

I grew up in Dallas, Texas (Suspension that's  my Hood!) I had an rocky childhood to say  the least. I grew up with a secret eating  at my soul. The perfect recipe for a very turbulent  childhood.

 

Molested by a women in the neighborhood  at a young age, I grew up in silences. 

I became very disenchanted with school at young age. My cry for help showed up in the form of misbehaving and being disruptive, it created the attention I longed for.

 

 I spent most of my time suspended or in my regular seat in what they class ISS (In House Suspension); being labeled  as the "bad kid" 

I became very rebellious. Lacking the skills to make choices that would serve my life in positive manner. These poor decision making skills tainted  my life  well into adulthood. 

At the age of 29, after being married to a man I did't even know. I found out I was pregnant with my 1st child a*k*a My saving grace. Wanting to have a natural child birth my doctor advised me to start practicing  Yoga.

My soul was awakened, my heart began  the healing process.  For the 1st time I was discovering  who I was  and who I could be.  I grow in this knowing everyday. 

My life changing experience  with Yoga lead me to create Yoga N The Hood! A non profit  wellness outreach organization that teaches people in under served communities  the art of self healing and self love through the practice of Yoga and Mindfulness. We offer free Yoga and Meditation classes in a hood near you.  Our mission is to equip individuals with the tools to empower there own life.
