"Dear Yoga:

Since I was a child I saw you at a distance, but never really got to know you, until one day 3 years ago

.

.

Do you remember the little girl who locked herself in her room , with a cheap book of asanas?

.

.

It was a protective space for you & me to escape the loneliness that had gripped me since losing my mother at 4 years old. An escape from a broken & cold family, from an emotionally distant father. I hid away, hiding my pain, repressing my emotions. But those negative emotions grew: self rejection, lack of self esteem, & suicidal urges

.

.

I'm sorry we broke up for a while Yoga; I went off to try & be 'normal', to do what was expected of me, you know... college, career, a man, children, a house. I was too scared to follow my own path

.

.

However you were always on my mind, calling me. But that calling came after going trough hell after 2 Ayahuasca ceremonies, it was intense, profound & so powerfull internally that I decided not to be in a place of pain anymore, I want to live, be authentic, real…but in order to do that I had to move out of my comfort zone

.

.

So my dear friend, I dived right into your truth. I left my career, boyfriend, sold the house, & took a teaching program. If you are going to do something you have to go all the way..that’s my motto

.

.

Yoga, do you know what you gave to me? Love!....Love for my self, respect to my body, fierce determination, acceptance of my imperfections ❤

.


Yoga you are my friend, my transformative force, a cleansing of the soul, removing layer by layer the lies & a light shining on who I really am, now I can see my beauty, my creativity, my courage & my strength

.

.

Yoga: my rock, the roots that I didn’t have growing up & from the bottom of my heart :Thank you for giving me a Home within my self 🙏

Carolina ❤"
