Meet Monica @satyadiyoga sharing her #yogasavedmylife story with us. These are her words ❤

"There are so many things - abusive partner, anxiety, bipolar

depression, eating disorder, stress of PhD, my father's suicide - that yoga has helped with, it's a lot to share and impossible to narrow it down to a caption


Yoga has and continues to save my life

.

.

As a teenager, I limited myself to 500 calories a day and occasionally purged. If I

went over 500, I’d work out twice as much to punish myself

.

.

A friend told me about a yoga studio she was going to, so I joined her for a class. The only thing I knew about yoga was the pictures of beautiful,

bendy former gymnasts and ballerinas I saw in magazines, and I thought it would make me feel worse

.

.

When I entered the studio, I saw people of all ages, shapes, and sizes flowing peacefully alongside each other. Yoga was by no means an instant fix, but over the years, I gained the tools and confidence to regain control of how I saw myself

in the mirror

.

.

The yoga studio has become a space for me where nothing else matters, where I can clear the clutter from my life and mind and prepare myself to face things one at a time

.

.

There is nowhere or nothing else quite like it ❤🙏
