Meet @kristen.terese.skin.wellness sharing her #yogasavedmylife story with us. These are her words

"I have found this path through struggles of my own, battling with anxiety, life’s challenges, you know, the real & raw stuff that we all experience in one way or another"

.

"After living an unhealthy mindset & lifestyle for so long, I knew there had to be something greater.  I wanted to feel good.  I searched to find new healthy habits.  So, I began to experiment with yoga.  I was drawn to yoga via my prior dance experience.  I loved movement, I just lost it for a while in the distraction of a more rebellious & unsettled life

.

I will never forget the day I had a connection with my yoga mat & I actually left the studio crying. It brought a lot of toxicity to the surface & I was ready to keep releasing it

.


It wasn’t until I found this one particular teacher that I was hooked. Her class was like a dance, the music was fitting & her words  insightful & poetic. It felt like I had gone through a real therapy session & left feeling a little more whole, real.  I kept coming back each day only to find healing. Mental, physical, emotional & even spiritual healing.  My doubts began to fade, for once, I felt grounded & began to understand what that actually meant.  The community around me inspired me to live a more mindful life.  I began to sense peace & growth & found an ability to really let go & believe in my true potential

.

After a year of work trade, cleaning a studio in Denver, I decided to participate in teacher training. I knew I wanted to share yoga with others

.

Teaching, has been its own journey in & of itself, pushing me along even more to the whole spectrum of wellness. Allowing me to connect with others in ways I never imagine

.


I am grateful for my practice & where it has led me today.  Through yoga I find peace in my heart, ease in my mind, a sense of connection with myself & others, meaning in life, healing in my physical body and awareness of my breath that  reminds me to slow down and look at the beauty all around. It’s removed the blinders from my eyes, the shield from my heart and has only made my life that much brighter and sweeter" 💚
