Meet Jen @the_msu_yogi sharing her #yogasavedmylife story with us. These are her words ๐Ÿ’š

"About 4 years ago my dream life came crashing down"


"I was living the American Dream - the house, the guy, the job - then my father fell ill very quickly to cancer. The month that I had left with him was spent in the hospital after work until late hours of the night, talking, playing cards and sometimes just watching him sleep

.

It was difficult to watch, he was always so energetic and alive! He could talk anyoneโ€™s ears off! We said our last goodbyes in May of 2016

.


In June of 2016 I went through a separation that soon led to a divorce. This was a man that was very driven work wise but had a bigger relationship with alcohol

.

The verbal abuse & fighting caused way too many riffs in our marriage, and I had to get out! .


My best friend suggested we try yoga

.

She had just suffered the loss of her brother, and it was helping her with grief and the struggles that came from losing a loved one. I immediately fell in love with this practice. Even though, at the time, I had NO idea the impact it would have on me and my life! I signed up after just one class and going 2/3 times a week turned into everyday!

.

Yoga was this magical hour where I could breathe, check in, accomplish that alone time and become stronger (mind and body)!

.

After about a month I knew I had to sign up for teacher training. I felt that if I could teach this amazing practice and make just ONE person feel the things I felt, especially while going through so much at once, than I have done my job!

.


Yoga saved me in a very difficult time. It got me through these major life struggles, and still gets me through the smaller ones, with grace and mindfulness. I believe that the people Iโ€™ve met through this practice have been angels sent to me from my dad! Positive people who are so inspiring and uplifting when you need them the most! I really donโ€™t know where I would be without my yoga practice! Jen ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ™"
