So.. I decided to blog my journey through yoga training. I’ve never blogged or really shared my story, but continue to be drawn to trying this so I’m going to give it a go! So.. Let’s start from the beginning….Yoga has been a staple in my life off on and on for about 10 years. Really, if I think about it, I’ve had a strong awareness of my body since I was young. Dancing was the first experience I had where I really began to understand the power that movement and expression through the body can have on the mind and overall perception of life. As I’ve gotten older, yoga became the more accessible version of expression.
When I really found yoga… The true meaning and lifestyle of yoga was at a very low point in my life.
I experienced a bout of Post Partum Depression and Anxiety during and after my second pregnancy that changed my life. I holed up with my worry and anger and shut down. Being a therapist helped me at some point recognize that I was not OK and I began to look for help, finding myself again when I came to my mat.
I’m not even sure what got me to that first class, but whatever inner voice and motivation I had that day truly saved me as I found the practice of yoga to be comforting and transformative. It took a while, a lot of “faking it till I made it” but I eventually found myself again and find myself seeking more of my own truth through the practice and lifestyle of yoga.
So… This is the beginning of the next transition! I have no idea where this will lead, but that’s half the fun, right?!
