Episode 4 : Bry Zaragoza

As a human we need experience in order to grow and appreciate life. If you don’t have enough struggle you create it to be able to experience and learn those lessons. From some of the most traumatic stories that I’ve heard come some of the greatest humans I know.
— Bry Zaragoza

Bry Zaragoza is a mobility and movement specialist, certified yoga teacher, personal trainer and dancer from Long Beach, California. She began dancing at age two, teaching dance classes at 16, danced internationally on tour with the Celtic Tiger by Michael Flatley show, and found her dance home in the RhetOracle Dance Company. After years of sacrificing her body for her love of dance and searching for a way to repair herself, Bry went down the path of personal training to discover her new passion for guiding people to find balance in their bodies and their life.  On this episode she talks about what it was like to be a professional dancer, how she found her way into personal training, and how her views of what you can do with your body and how to take care of it have evolved
