How did you first start getting into yoga, health, and self-care?

I grew up in a small town in the south of Mexico. At age 19 I found a book about yoga postures, diet, and general self-care and became fascinated. I began practicing on my own and integrating the dietary and lifestyle advice. Yoga was practically unheard of at that time in Mexico, my family and friends didn't know what to make of my new and strange ways of exercising and eating. When I left Mexico I continued to study yoga and nutrition with a teacher, and soon after, when my mother was diagnosed with cancer, I felt compelled to continue studying healing and wellness practices including traditional Chinese medicine.
