I fell in love with Yoga when my other love, my husband James, was suddenly deployed to Iraq. While he was gone, I felt lonely and alone. So alone. All I could do was keep my faith that he would make it home safely back to me, and take the best care of myself I could to stay healthy for him. I feel like in a way, I took the love I usually gave him and gave it to myself by beginning a regular yoga practice. I fell really hard for yoga. I had joined a fitness center and started going to all the yoga classes they offered. You could say I was hooked : )
They had two classes, one was some weekday mornings and the other some weekday nights. One was more relaxing, and the other was more power. I remember thinking to myself that the power instructor sounded like an auctioneer with how fast she would talk and have us move. Both classes were challenging in their own ways and both equally amazing. It was the best of both worlds.
Since then, I have taught so many people yoga. I have loved every second of it. I knew within the first week of beginning yoga classes that I would teach yoga. I REALLY loved it. Growing up, my mom drove me to countless ballet classes. For me, yoga is like ballet, but better. I do yoga for myself, to stay healthy and feeling good, feeling strong, not to perform for someone else. I share yoga with others, and will continue to share it with others, because it is such an amazing pathway to health and happiness.
I love the versatility within yoga, of all its different forms and styles. There is truly something for everyone. The fact that I get to do what I love, and share it with people, is simply the greatest job in the entire world. I look forward to getting to share yoga with many more through different avenues such as my website and YouTube.
There is no greater gift in this life than doing what you love and getting to share it with others.
Hope you all are having a great week! Happy hump day my friends : ) ❤️ A
