Dr. Bottoms is a neuropsychologist by day, yoga/running enthusiast, wife, and mom, by night. Although she will tell you that she was never a competitive athlete throughout high school or college, she found her “stride” in yoga. In 2008 she had decided to start running to try and lose some weight and eventually talked herself into yoga, figuring it would be a complement to her constant pounding of the pavement. What she found, however, was so much more than just another workout. Yoga fostered her belief in herself and gave her the confidence to pursue triathlons. With yoga as a supplement to triathlon training, she pushed to a new level and unlocked a competitive athlete that she never imagined or believed she could be. To date she has completed two Ironmans (yes, 2.4 mi swim, 112 mi bike, 26.2 mi run), numerous half-ironmans, two Boston marathons, and a handful of other marathons. She has had two babies in the last two years and while her formalized athletic training has taken a backseat to motherhood, she continues to wake at 4am daily to ensure she exercises her mind and body before caring for her babies’ needs and heading to work. Her yoga training comes from both Yoga Fit and the Baptiste Institute and her classes follow a Baptiste style of power yoga. However, do not let the word “power” intimidate you. This yoga is modifiable and accessible to individuals of all shapes and sizes.
