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

"When I was 18, I was raped. I lost sight of who I truly was; I was never genuinely present with myself or others. I was a rollercoaster of unhealthy habits and emotions


For years I struggled with feelings of worthlessness. My self-respect was low and I had deep-rooted insecurities which caused me to lose control of my emotions, thoughts, and my reality

.

I did not care to plan for my future and I did not want to deal with my past.I made myself believe I was living in the moment but I was drowning in the deep end of denial

.

It wasn’t until I started my Yoga practice that the veils of past traumas and conditioning started lifting. I could feel myself and see myself with a clearer mind and an awakened heart; I was able to access the innate compassion from my intelligent heart

.


I remembered who I (we) truly am (are): light and love energy in human form.I relearned how to set boundaries and be honest, but most importantly, how to forgive and love myself. It wasn’t easy and it is still a daily practice, but my mind, body and sprit feel more connected than ever before

.

Self-love is a daily challenge fellow Earthlings.It is a constant unfolding; a continuous process of self-realization and letting go

.

Yoga has helped me shed so many protective layers of vulnerability and fully trust in my power and the universe.I decided to become a yoga teacher because of this and am now sharing my practice with teenage girls that have been raped or have dealt with violence. I feel truly blessed to be able to share my story and continue my healing journey with the knowledge and magic of Yoga

.

Namaste and blessings 🙏"
