Meet DJ & Yogi @lilrockitdj Sharing her #yogasavedmylife story with us. These are her words ❤

"Due to a lack of self confidence, depression, anxiety and years sat indoors at a computer screen due to agoraphobia, my shoulders are humped & my body confidence dipped further when I saw images of myself after my DJ shows, humped over the decks


Yoga was something that had been playing on my mind to try for a while. October 2017 I decided to start Yoga to hopefully rectify these physical issues before my biggest gig this year in August, but it has given me so much more than that... 💕

I pushed myself so hard for the first 2 months, knowing that I would have to get past the point of the initial ooo’s, ahhh’s and omg’s, and did that by attending 5 lessons in each week, shouting at myself in my mind to get past it and ‘You can do this’. I am now at a point where I can concentrate on my breathing, where I notice each progression, and my arms are strong enough to hold me in plank long enough to not face plant the floor - I’ve even started a home practice on the days I am not in a class, or when I am traveling too

But that’s not all; my spiritual side has returned after a few years of being in limbo, I’m more flexible, it has helped me remain positive about refusing to take any form of medication ever for depression and anxiety treatment, and after 5 years of only knowing 2 people after I moved to where I live now, I have made a whole family of friends that I couldn’t imagine being without at least once in my week

I now work with some amazing Yoga inspired brands, and have more focus in my life 🕉

This is all thanks to @ellievolvingyoga who allowed me to join her amazing class 💕
