About Me

For me, writing the first sentence is always the hardest part. I never quite know how to begin. Even more so, when I'm talking about myself. My name is LaTisha and I love yoga. Hence, the "Yogi Tish" moniker I use in all things soul related.

In 2008, I discovered Mysore Style Ashtanga yoga at Miami Life Center and fell in love. OK, so not really. I was so out of shape that, immediately after that first class with Tim Feldmann, I went home and cried. It was just so damn hard. I felt embarrassed, exposed, and extremely uncomfortable.

However, I believe that, when people are confronted with difficulty, they are faced with two choices: rise up to the challenge or run in the other direction! Although every cell in my being wanted to flee, the fire within my heart was lit and made me want to stick with it. I have grown in this practice and each day brings a new jewel of truth. Most of the time, I have found that these jewels are wrapped in the many layers of baggage I have surrounded myself with over the years. However, I truly believe that anything worth having exacts a level of commitment that burns away the things that would keep us from realizing our greatest potential (thus, the concept of tapas).

In 2014, I completed a RYT 200 teacher training with YogaOne Studios in Houston, Texas. I currently teach both Hot and Flow yoga at YogaOne. In 2015, I am participating in YogaOne's Lead to Inspire Mentorship program. In June 2015, I completed the Baptiste Yoga Level One yoga teacher training in Sedona, Arizona. My aim is to become the best yoga teacher that I can be for my students.

I wish I could adequately describe how much I love teaching yoga. I always say that, as students, we come to class, in part, to bask in the energy of our yoga teacher. I can honestly say that, for me, it's the opposite -- my students light me up. They fill me with hope, enthusiasm, passion, and compassion. I wish I could show them what I see -- beautiful beings of light, worthy of their every desire.

One of the reasons I practice yoga and I teach yoga is to show everyone that yoga is accessible to people of all different shapes, sizes, backgrounds, ages, etc. It's so easy to compare ourselves to other yogis in terms of what our bodies are capable of doing or how our bodies look in comparison to others. That's not really the point of practicing yoga. Each time we step on our mats, we have the wonderful opportunity to experience each asana in our own skin. We are able to tap into the infinite inner wisdom housed in our bodies and we re-connect with our inner truth.

In 2015, I took the leap and became a Desire Map Facilitator. I will be leading in-person and online workshops that are based on Danielle LaPorte's amazing book, The Desire Map. To sum up the book in a couple of sentences or less is hard, but here's a powerful quote from the book that, for me, hits the nail on the head (or however you say that! I am horrible with English colloquialisms. :-)), “Knowing how you actually want to feel is the most potent form of clarity that you can have. Generating those feelings is the most powerfully creative thing you can do with your life.” My hope is to combine yoga, meditation, and the Desire Map to create a unique, powerful, life-changing event for the brave souls who join me on adventure to remember.

I am so grateful to be able to share this experience with you. I know that the healing power of yoga coupled with the wisdom of The Desire Map can and will change the world. I thank you for accompanying me on this journey of self-discovery.

Namaste,

Yogi Tish

P/S I'd love to hear from you. One of my core desired feelings is "connected," so please send me love mail here -- tish@ochobrazos.com!

Q & A

Q: What are your Core Desired Feelings?

Precious Protected Radiant Connected

Q: How / where did you Desire Map? What did you love about doing it that way?

Once I started reading, I did not want to stop. I went to my favorite cafe and just zoned into my feelings. I had to let a lot of the book soak in deep into my bones. This meant letting it sit in the back of mind as I went about my normal day. This was a new experience for me and I didn't want to rush through the exploration of who I am and what I truly want to feel. It was special, heartbreaking (in a good way! That's how the light enters), and invigorating.

Q: Tell me a specific story about how knowing your CDFs has changed your life.

It has changed the way I approach decision making. For instance, I want to feel connected. However, I often go off the deep end and commit myself to too many things. It makes me feel frazzled, overwhelmed, icky, and disconnected. Now that I know I want to feel connected, I have learned to value quality over quantity. I am choosing things that make me feel good, that light me up, and that make me feel connected.

Q: Why are you passionate about sharing this work with others?

My personal mission is to help people connect with their inner truth. As a yoga teacher, I enjoy leading people through an asana class, encouraging them, challenging them, and witnessing firsthand their personal transformation. The Desire Map takes that passion to a whole new stratosphere. It is part of the legacy of love that I want to leave on this earth.

Testimonials

It was a beautiful space to relax and explore, and I never wanted to leave. Every day I felt refreshed and hopeful. It was more rejuvenating than a week-long beach vacation, and I couldn't believe it was only two days!

Kate

After completing the three day weekend, I was able to take away what I needed to work on to make me a better person. I was able to realize that sometimes I need to make time for myself and that I need to love me more. Yogi Tish is a great teacher and anyone that takes her workshop will enjoy every minute.

Angela Chavez from Midlothian, TX

I found desire is so beautiful within a woman. It's the sunshine lighting my life and giving me courage all the time. I would recommend you to sit down with Yogi Tish and enjoy the trip of self-discovering and loving.
