My yogic journey starts many years ago, through the ebb and flow of life; with all the change, the challenge, and so much joy, yoga has been a foundation to keep me grounded and steady. In 2007, I was diagnosed with cancer and my steady grounded life became a little rocky and unpredictable. The added restrictions or limitations of my life-style, eating habits, and mental well-being were surprising. My general sense of safety was shattered. After several months of surgery, recovery, and stir-craziness, the doctor released me to yoga. I was completely over the moon! To get back to the mat and begin feeling “normal” sounded like heaven. Oddly, looking back I can’t remember my first ever yoga class, but I can remember that first class back to the mat after the doctor’s approval. The simple sense of peace and happiness filled every fiber of my heart and soul. It was like returning hOMe.
A decade later, I had a great teacher remind me “Everyone has a different path to follow. We are all unique and special.” This inspired me!!! We all take different roads to find our way. And daily I am reminded, life is full of infinite opportunity, if you are willing it can lead to boundless potential and endless possibilities. Like flying your first Crow, if you are willing to let go of the ground, you will soar!
I completed my RYT200 in 2017 and I am actively working towards my RYT500 certification to personally deepen my understanding of this ancient moving meditation. I love vinyasa! I love the simple connection of breath and movement it is empowering, centering, and extremely calming. My hope is my students will find the same sense of joy in their journey as I found in mine. Namaste.
