My Journey to become a better Yogi

Posted on Posted in Psychotherapy, Yoga

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?!

  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious
    what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost
    a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% sure.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Appreciate it

    1. Hello!

      I apologize for the late response! Unfortunately I didn’t get a notification that I had a message. Still working out the kinks! I set the blog and website combo up through Go Daddy. The price I paid was pretty reasonable for a 3 year contract. It was less than $200. I originally started with them using a regular Webbuilder which was very user friendly in building a webpage, but did not have a blog attached. The option was to switch everything over to a WordPress and combine both or to establish a separate blog and then connect it to my website which would cost me the same or more. I am not very knowledgable in building websites or blog as this is my first real attempt. The designs are pretty user friendly and there are many sites out there where people have question/answer feeds that help to walk you through the design as well. Let me know if you have any other questions and thanks for reading!
