"I used to be like the Tazmanian Devil. Fast, intense & causing some damage around me"

Meet lawyer, mum & yogini @luciana.farias77 sharing her #yogasavedmylife story. These are her words 💚

"Professionally , I was doing great. Senior partner corporate lawyer, workaholic & ruthless. I thought that was the secret to success in the modern world

.

I became a mom at 35 & my world turned upside down. I became softer & I love my daughter more than everything, but it felt like a rollercoaster ride

.

On the surface, at 40, my life appeared good, a loving family, my career back on track. But I had a yearning for something indescribable Something to fullfil a sort of spiritual void & sense something was missing from my life, despite my pitcure perfect life on the outside

.

One day I passed this Yoga school a block from home – which strangely I had never noticed before in 3 years! I emailed them & a week later I was doing sun salutations for the first time in my life

.

I started twice a week - watching everyone doing crazy poses, hoping to eventually touch my toes & learn to breathe - after a year, 5 times a week. I was fascinated with my body changes, but more how my mind was shifting. I wanted more & more

.

Then I broke a rib while practicing & had to stop for 2 months. I felt devastated. I realized I had transfered my tazmanian devil drive to my Yoga pratice

.

And then my real learning began. I started to meditate more, to read the Yoga sutras, to forgive myself & to accept my limits as well as the infinite possibilities that had been in front of me everyday, but I'd been blind to, due to my egomaniacal needs

.

I returned to practice in a slower, calmer way, with no urge to reach all asanas. I could find my own pace, my own practice & my own concept of happiness

.

The more I practice, the better I feel. My body & my mind feel connected to a deeper source of pure energy while I'm practicing & I'm learning to take that off the mat too. I'm learning to feel this huge loving energy we are part of - every single day. That is simply amazing!

.

The Tazmanian Devil is gone

Namaste, Luciana 🙏
