"I was in denial for most of my life

.

I tried therapy once, couldn't stand it

.

Didn't want to be on medication

.

But I was deeply unhappy. I knew I needed to do something about it. And that's where yoga came in 🙏

.

It didn't work right away. It took time. I didn't know it was really saving me. But one day, after practicing consistently for months, I decided I needed to go to India. Alone

.

It was the most life-changing thing I have ever done

.

That trip showed me that where I was, my life as it was, didn't have to be IT. My life could be so much more. It gave me the courage to move across the country, a move I had been wanting to make for years but was too scared to do

.

This move taught me to let go of things and people that do not serve me. It taught me that I do not need to hold onto negativity

.

Yoga also taught me to fall in love with my body. I grew up in the same body-shaming society that most women my age did, but through yoga, I was able to connect with myself in a new way. Yoga led me to Pilates, which led me to grow curious about different forms of movement in general

.


These days, yoga has become more of a mental state for me than anything else. I still practice asana, but more than anything, yoga made me a teacher

.

Because of yoga, I now teach yoga, Pilates, and weight lifting. I truly believe that through movement, we can heal, and because of my own personal experience, it is my greatest joy to help others discover the same for themselves 🙏
