It’s time for My Yoga Space. This week it’s Semper Fidelis Health and Wellness co-founder Elijah Sacra.
It didn’t take long for me to figure this out: the reason everyone loves the U.S. Marines Corps is that the Marines love the Marines more than anyone else. Furthermore, it was explained to me that there isn’t such a thing as a former Marine because a Marine will always be a Marine. Only in conversations about Marines would one use the word Marines more than once in a single sentence. I’m sure they’ve even managed to get it into the Chicago Manual of Style, the AP Guide, and no doubt it’s in the MLA.
A Marine will do things check into the Dulles Hotel in Washington DC for the Marine Corps marathon and bring super human bionic food. Eat this, yoga community:
Elijah makes a variety of good food choices.
They are team and other-person oriented. Marines will run the Marine Corps Marathon for forty eight Marines who died in combat, not only starting as a platoon, but will carry the flag, and finish as one too:
Carrying the flag for their fallen brothers, the 3/25 carried the flat the entire Marine Corps Marathon Route, ran together, and finished together.
They finished. Elijah Sacra (in sunglasses), Alvaro Matta, Patrick G. Young Jr., Michael Kiniry, Lisa Julian Galford, Joe Miranda, Al Akeroyd and Oscar Aguilera.
And one Marine, Elijah Sacra, had a lean, spare, stripped down yoga space.

To me, this is the most beautiful space I will ever share on this blog.
