"My name is jessica & yoga saved my life. I found some free yoga classes on youtube a little over a year ago. At first I was participating in yoga for the "weightloss" benefits but what I discovered was so much better

.

.

About 4 months in I started to feel better about myself. I was more confident and happy on the inside. I was no longer purging my food because i was no longer binge eating....yet I was still losing weight and my body was becoming stronger each day

.

.

The first time I cried on the mat was probably when I actually realized yoga is so much more then just the asanas. I felt this deep emotion connecting me to everything and I knew in that moment I could forgive myself and move on. It changed my life. I knew then I am enough. .

.

Anyone who knows a bipolar person knows that emotional outburst are "normal" but this was different...I was still in control of my thoughts but they were freeing at the same time

.

.

Today I practise yoga daily. My day isn't complete with out a good morning flow. It helps me with my mood swings (which are practically non existent now) anxiety, depression and of course binge eating . I can honestly say: Yoga save my life

Love & light ❤ Jessica 🙏
