"Did yoga save my life? I would like to think that I saved my OWN life with the help of yoga!"

Meet Ashtanga yoga teacher @natonthemat sharing her #yogasavedmylife story with us. These are her words 💚

. "I started practicing Ashtanga everyday, 6 days a week since 2011 and haven’t stopped since

.

I practiced when I couldn’t get pregnant and had to undergo a surgery and many treatments in 3 years

.

I practiced when I got pregnant

.

practiced throughout my whole pregnancy until the day I went to the hospital for delivery

.

I practiced again 38 days after I delivered c section

.

I practiced when I suffered from Insomnia, bloating, migraines, and high BP- I practiced when I lost everything and had to start from scratch

.

I practiced when everyone was against me and everyone in the world wanted me to stop practicing

.

I practiced when it was very hard to wake up and all I wanted to do is stay in bed and cry my eyes out

.

I practiced and practiced and I'm still practicing and practicing and hopefully will keep on practicing

.

Because Yoga helps me become a better person, a better version on myself and makes me stronger inside out! It simply empowers me!

.

Thank you Fierce calm for giving us the opportunity to share our experiences and passion for this practice

.

Om Shanti 🙏
