Helen Keller once said, “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing,” and Bonnie Bowman takes this advice to heart. Bonnie believes in creating spaces to push against the boundaries of comfort zones. She believes in passion, exploration, acceptance, hard work and a little bit of magic.
Bonnie is a California native with a love of the Ocean. She has been many things from a Fashion Photographer to a Scuba Dive Instructor. She’s traveled the world and now finds her home here, in Lawrenceville, with her husband, two daughters, two dogs, two cats, and 20 chickens.
Yoga has become one of Bonnie’s greatest passions. Bonnie agrees with Rachel Brathen when she says that in yoga, a certain pose is not the goal. Becoming flexible isn’t the goal, either. To Bonnie (and Rachel), the goal of yoga is to make peace with who you are. The goal is to appreciate your body and to become aware of your mind and the noise that it creates.
