    I find Tara Stiles inspiring because she is carving new paths in yoga, on her own terms, and bringing health and wellness to people in a way that is completely accessible.

  • My parents are my inspiration. They celebrated 51 years of marriage this year and continue going strong! Both had major surgeries (she a knee replacement; he a scope on a major vein in his neck), but they haven’t slowed down a step. Their love and strength fuels my day!

  • The most inspiring woman in my world is my grandmother, who was shipped from England at age 6 to do farm labor in the colonies. She went on to serve in the Royal Canadian Air Force and raise 10 children before she died at 55. I wish she could have lived long enough for me to know her, or to do the things she must have wanted to do, but I feel her with me often.

  • Samantha

    The most inspiring world to me is my mother. She is no longer living but she fought a long, hard battle with breast cancer. She fought valiantly and never lost her sense of humor. She continued to be a strong, loving woman through it all. She was always concerned with my day and how things were going in my life. She had a hard life growing up but that never stopped her from being a caring, thoughtful person. I miss her every day.

  • It would be no surprise that the most inspiring woman for me is my mom. She had always a hard life and she could give up many times, but she would do everything for me and my siblings to make our life better. I’m so grateful for having such an amazing person in my life. I want to do everything to make her happy. She deserves all the best! :)

  • I person I chose is Nancy Hinds. She founded the non-profit hospice I am priviledged to work for. When Nancy was a single mother with three small boys in the 1980′s, she began taking dying folks into her home to care for them when they had no one else. Her actions turned into the hospice movement blooming in California’s Central California. Hinds Hospice now has a 6 bed in-patient home and serves 200+ people in the California Central Valley, wherever their place of residence. Nancy’s spirit and love of humanity continues today in the hospice she founded and her on-going work providing end of life care in prisons . Daily, I am inspired by her life and work.

  • Christianne McCall

    My aunt Linda is so inspiring to me. She’s always happy and fun to be around. I wish I could be that way!!

  • Loretta Czernis

    I find Cora Wen very inspiring. She is a very disciplined and dedicated yoga teacher. In addition, she has been through a lot but still maintains a very positive attitude to life and is a very giving person. Cora is awesome!

  • Abbey Hope

    Geeta-ji Iyengar is my great inspiration. Her family loyalty and torch-carrying for the Iyengar family and Iyengar yoga expanded to an acceptance of all of us Iyengar practitioners into her family. She shows us tough love when we need it, and gentle love when we need it, and when I wonder how to approach practicing or teaching a pose, I always ask myself, “What would Geeta do?”

  • Anne Marie Webster-Scott

    I find Vandana Shiva to be an inspiring woman. Her environmental activism is admirable.

  • Recently I have spent some time with a writer in NYC, her name Suzanne Ruta, she is friendly, brilliant, open, caring and giving. I am not sure of her age. Her husband Peter is 97 a painter who paints everyday! They had my family over for dinner this weekend and shared amazing stories and history. They are working with friends in Italy to do a retrospective about my Grandma who ran an art school in Positano. Suzanne’s ene and enthusiasm is infectious! She has motivated me to do many things. Oh and there two story apt in the original Bell Labs building is a big “wow”. They have been in it since the 50′s when it was converted for artists! I could go on…….

  • The woman that’s inspiring me the most right now is Vironika Tugaleva.
    She’s a coach, she’s been through her own hell and now she’s helping every woman around her to love herself unconditionally. I’m working myself in a 30 day challenge build by her and it’s the most inspiring, supportive and generous work I’ve seen in a long time. Can’t help her enough!

    Inspired by her I would give this prizes to a friend of mine who has had breast cancer and is relentlessly working on herself to overcome it all. Love her!

  • SilvestriWoman

    The woman I’m visiting right now – my mother. She remains a rock of quiet strength and wisdom. Most humbling, I’m now able to assist her wellness with yin yoga – arguably, the greatest gift of my yoga journey.

  • Stacey

    My yoga teacher is the most inspiring woman I know, she has taught me that at the end of the day love is really all that matters. My life has changed so much for the better since she came into my life and I am learning how to be my true self and help others do the same.

  • Orshi

    Ina May Gaskin is my inspiration. Her birthday is on March 8th, International Women’s Day. She is America’s most respected and well-known home birth midwife. Under tremendous pressure, she has carried on, taught, promoted and argued for gentle, optimal, non intrusive, natural, supportive and spiritual birth care for women and their babies. Her books and lectures are inspiring gems while her arguments are razor sharp and evidence based. She is not only an intellectual powerhouse, but a loving and caring colleague and friend as well who drops everything in her life to come help out a friend or fellow midwife in need. When I asked her to help me free an unjustly jailed Hungarian midwife, Agnes Gereb, Ina offered her assistance right away. She flew to New York City from Tennessee with her ailing husband Steve, attended our mini confrence, our protest in front of the Hungarian Consulate and set down for a very productive meeting with the Consul General to discuss the merits of home birth and the unfair treatment of Hungarian mothers and midwives. My friend, Agnes, was released from jail the very next day. :) Thank you Ina, love and respect! Namaste.

  • Anna Stankiewicz

    My friend Jennie Friese – because despite being sick she shines brighter than ever.

  • Lisa

    Barbara Jordan…a black, lesbian woman diagnosed with MS gets elected to Congress…from Texas…in the ’70s. Radical and awesome. Inspires me that nothing can limit me if I don’t let it.

  • My mother is my inspiration as she is an educator is a public school who has taught me kindness, compassion and independence from day one. Now at twenty-five, I am more grateful then ever.

  • Michelle D

    Nancy Drew was a huge inspiration to me as a young girl. She showed me that girls could be intelligent, curious and make contributions to society. She was unlike anyone I knew.

  • The woman that’s inspiring me is my mother she is strong as a rock and kind as an angel. I will love her for ever :)

  • This is a wonderful ariticle, I like it so much.

  • Deborah H

    I have been, and continue to be, inspired by Kimberly Wilson. She is the Tranquil Space founder, holds a Master’s Degree in Social Work, and loves animals and all things Paris. I visit her website daily for a dose of Tranquility and find her books to be inspirational to me and my creative endeavors.
