Meet @kaylas_wholesomelife sharing her #yogasavedmylife story with us. These are her words 💚

"I had no self worth, I was in an extremely bad place emotionally, spiritually & was sick all the time; covered in eczema & having severe allergies 24/7, I experienced insomnia, my relationship with food & alcohol was harmful & I felt pretty empty


I took my first yoga class after a physio insisted it would help my scoliosis & severe back pain

.

I remember hating every single moment of class as I was so inflexible: couldn't touch my toes if my life depended on it; shaking, the 'simple poses had me dripping in sweat & I couldn't soften as the teacher continued to remind the class. My mind raced & the thought of spending an hour with myself to enquire deeper scared the hell out of me

.


There is a saying 'give people what they came for, but then give them what they truly need' & Yoga did exactly that! It was almost like a whisper from my soul that continued to encourage me back on my mat to what eventually turned into a daily practice

.


My body gradually began to soften & open, the constant fluctuations of my mind slowed, I began to feel at home, at ease. I recall feeling so inspired by what my body could do & turned my despair for her into love

.

Everything changed: my mobility improved, my pain from my back completely gone. For the first time I found myself being less reactive & developed skills to bring myself a sense of calm even in the most difficult situations

.

I knew in my heart that this ancient healing practice was something that I had to share, to help others heal the way I had. I knew when I completed my training it would be incredible, but what I didn't know is how much it would help push me beyond the limitations of my mind, connect me with so many incredible beings & give me the ability to feel absolutely, without a doubt the happiest human alive. I hold so much gratitude in my heart for my teachers, this practice & all that it is 💚 Kayla"
