I was never taught how to really take care of myself.
Until a major wake up call happened in my life. An intestine infection and relationship troubles made me think twice about everything. I needed to take better care of myself, but I didn’t know where to start. The first thing I knew how to do was focus on my body. So even though I despised the gym, I forced myself to go and I found myself in a yoga class. And it wasn’t pleasant. At all.
No confidence in my body, or myself. I didn’t know how to do any of the poses, and I felt clumsy.
However, after taking a few classes, I felt a little better…lighter… and I kept going back because I wanted to keep feeling that good. I completely fell in love with moving my body and forgetting about everything else. But as I followed what every teacher told me to do, my wrists started hurting… then my shoulder, and then my hip. I couldn’t do a lot of the poses without pain or discomfort. I had to change how I practiced yoga.
I had to find out what my body and mind needed from me.
I needed something other than following what each teacher told me to do. I needed a practice that was all about self-exploration. A practice that would help me connect to my real self, not the small voice inside my head telling me I wasn’t good enough. My yoga teacher training, lots of workshops, and teaching yoga has led me to where I am today.
Today, I teach yoga to help people like you quiet your busy mind, check in with your heart, and move your body and feel good doing it… without focusing only on achieving the best yoga pose or changing who you are. By doing that, you start on your own personal journey inwards to more self-love, happiness, and peace.
