Meet Jodie @jojomclarenx sharing her #yogasavedmylife story us. These are her words 💚

"Working in an NHS hospital at the moment with this current pandemic is very hectic, roles have changed and patients are in need of assistance even more"

.

. "My daily yoga practice has allowed me to cope with this uncertain time as it provides me with the ability change my mindset whether it is to prepare for the day ahead or to wind down for the evening after a stress filled day

.


I can put on some music and let my body flow however feels good & I know that after I am always going to feel an inner sense of calm

.

I am a Private PA in Oncological care & after nearly 5 years of being the port of call for patients in need of urgent cancer care, emotionally it started to take toll on me. Admin staff are not prepared for how much working in cancer care can affect you even though you are not clinical

.


As a former performer I have always been creative and I knew I was in need of a creative outlet to let go of all the anxious energy swirling around my body at night

.

That is when began to set aside time for myself & began to practice yoga again

.


Yoga is not about learning a new trick, it’s about self care & getting to know what your body needs

.


I plan on setting up my own classes once I can get my teaching certification but for now I am sharing my flows & experiences to encourage others to specifically use this forced “downtime” as an opportunity to take time for themselves & to also use yoga as an outlet for all that pent up, frustration, anxiety and discomfort that may be floating around 🙏

.


Now more than ever I feel that #yogasavedmylife & continues to do so whenever I need it

.

Jodie 💚
