Meet yoga teacher @yogatiffany_ so generously creating art & sharing her #yogasavedmylife story

"My yoga story began back in 2009, back when I was a shell of who I am today: back when I was 34 years old, struggling in silence with depression & anxiety; back when thinking about, speaking about mental health in the black community was taboo; back then the mental health struggle for me was a real & tangible thing; back then, I was told to pray & I would feel better


"Back then, I found myself at the crossroads of life. Back then I had no idea of who I was

.

Back then I had no passions of my own & lacked self-love in a big way. Back then, my world was completely & utterly wrapped around what made my husband happy, what made our sons happy, what made my parents happy & what others thought of me

.


Back then, I felt empty, bitter, angry, resentful, exhausted, lonely & severely depressed

.

Back then, I was on a mission to teach everyone around me that I was not good enough

.

Back then I reinforced this message with my behavior

.

One day I knew there had to be a better way to live this life

.

Yoga 💚 Tiffany .
