"Two Junes ago, I lost my youngest brother Billy to a heroine overdose"

Meet 200 RYT @parhamalise sharing her #yogasavedmylife story with us. These are her words ๐Ÿ’š

.

. "I was drowning in pain, deep in the dark, only able to live minute to minute. In this time of profound sadness, it was yoga that I turned to in order to calm my emotions

.

I could not have been more in need of the peace & I was so grateful that I knew how and where to go for that feeling. The yoga studio became my church, where I gave in to the higher power. My yoga teacher trainer and mentor @yogijmiles held a much needed space that I couldnโ€™t find anywhere else

.

After any family event, I would head straight to my mat at home or to class and practice. Practice breathing. Practice letting go. Setting my intention toward Billyโ€™s energy or my family or myself. And slowly, each time, I would feel my heart lift a bit like a reset & I was able to go again

.

My practice held the power to pull me out of darkness and the crack is how the light got in

.

Ultimately, this is what I want to do for my students and all others I come in contact with. I want to be the vessel, the channel that holds the space for someone else - and continuously pay it forward until we can all find our way to shine ๐Ÿ™
