"Believe in yourself. Its only fear holding you back!"

She doesn't really think of herself as a yogi, but I don't know about you, her outlook & strength, make her a guru to us 🙌 These are her words ❤

"So, was it yoga that saved my life? I don't know what to tell you. I spent two years in hospital after my accident. I survived that myself along with all the support from everyone who cared for me

.

But Yoga has played its part in since I got out of hospital 4 months ago.

When Fierce Calm asked me about my story I said, honestly, the accident itself is the only thing I'm not comfortable talking about or want to make public, it's just too painful for me to go through that. Most importantly it has no relevance to me! I'm not interested on what was in the past, I just want to focus on the future 😊 .

.

I started trying yoga postures for the first time ever after I was released in January & received my prosthetics. Before the accident, I'd only ever lifted weights a bit. My life is not in a safe place yet & through my accident I lost my studies (I was a med student) & I'm not 100% sure what I'm going to do now.

BUT working out & doing these yoga poses is a very important part of my life: it makes me feel alive, because to me the ability to move is pure freedom

.

Since my accident a lot of things became more than difficult...the more I realised how important it is to always look out for the good things in life. Those parts that make you feel happy & grateful, even & especially if you can't see them instantly but have to be patient to wait for them to arise. Look up at the blue sky between those clouds. You will only appreciate them even more! .

.


Please don't ever see practicing as a chore, because the ability to move is just a privilege and something that I appreciate every day 😊

We should all just spend time every day doing something fun for us. Yoga or whatever that might be, because one day the unexpected might happen. It would be just sad to look back & realise, that you didn't enjoy those times you were fine" ❤ .
