My Yoga Bio:
I started my wellness journey seeking a way to distress from the corporate world- I was always pushing myself to strive further, work harder-accomplish more-achieve more get a big house, buy a fancy car-never stop- never settle. This was instilled in me and kept me going day to day – I started having major sleep issue and anxiety for years and was on a path to many self-destructive health behaviors. ...
I allowed myself to endure this. Always adding more pressure and never a way to release breath and calm all the chatter in my mind. Knowing now that all this could have been avoided if I permitted myself to self soothe between work days—take time to note what I was passing by to get to the next thing. Always looking at the next goal never being in the moment and present to what was actually going on right in front of me. I still have lots to work on and I do this daily, with great pleasure.
I was an international competitor in modern gymnastics as a child also ballet and figure skating classes were a regular routine daily for me. As I moved in to high school-- there was track and field, tennis team, volleyball team- hurdles-long jump, basketball ect always aim higher go further. Be the first to finish. Yoga has giving me MY second chance to get a grip on what is real and what is really important. My health, my life- laughing, loving -breathing, happiness bliss thing I just didn't make time for before. With this wonderful tool (yoga) in my life I am able to cope with all the things I come up against. I feel armed and ready for any new challenging situations, bumps in the roads ahead always be able to bring myself to calm(the present moment) whenever I need to. This is a wonderful tool and I intend to pass it along to as many people as possible.
