I spent years being totally devoted to using drugs & all the crazy behaviors that go along with it


Meet the truly inspirational @taylorhuntyoga founder of non profit @trinifoundation bringing yoga to those fighting addiction. These is his #yogasavedmylife story: . . "There was a time when I was ashamed of my story. I didn’t share it with others outside of the recovery community because I didn’t believe my past fit the mold of who a yoga teacher is supposed to be. What would others in the yoga community think of me if they knew that I struggled with alcoholism and drug addiction for a decade? . . I was a tornado when I was using: emotional & brash mixed with anger issues. I exploded out of nowhere. The only time I had peace is when I did my daily drug run. I was so addicted that I sold my material stuff & my dignity. I ran up my credit cards since I was unemployed & unemployable. I looked like a zombie- track marks on my arms fiending for the next fix.  It was a sad time. I was constantly depressed & I always had the thought that I was to do something else . . That something else was yoga. I made it to a place in my life where I didn’t want to live the way I was living but I was scared, really scared.  I knew that I would basically have to change everything in my life . . I was working on my sobriety when I was introduced to yoga & am forever grateful. I don’t know if I'd be sober if I hadn’t  found yoga & been pressured by a persistent yogi friend. It truly has been one of the most powerful tools to help me clean up my life. Every day I give thanks & humbly get on my knees asking for a day of sobriety & for me to get in alignment with what my higher power has in store. I have devoted my entire life to not only being sober but also to staying connected to my path & my faith . . I wouldn’t be here today if it wasn’t for this gift & the more I give to it the more I get back. My whole aim is to help other people be better whether that’s with getting sober or just being the best version of ourselves. I know, just based from my experience that the more I devote myself the better my life gets & for those around me" . 📷 @peachhouseproductions
