MY WHY.... I love Yoga, I love healthcare, I love being an entrepreneur. I have spent many years being a single mother, not having time for my children and not being happy with my life. I knew I needed a change. I have taught yoga since 2009, and it was my side job..
I started teaching yoga because I have always loved sports and fitness, but I had no idea what yoga was all about. Once I experienced the beauty and love of Yoga, I wanted to share that mind body experience with others (like myself) who have not had the opportunity to practice or understand all of the benefits of yoga.
Yoga brings me inner peace. It reminds me that we are all at different places in our lives and we all have traumas, joys and experiences that NO ONE but us can understand and thats OK. Sometimes its hard to understand others and where they are coming from, but do we need to? Not necessarily..
We simply need to be KIND, OPEN HEARTED and FORGIVING of OURSELVES (the hard one) and of each other. Many times when we are faced with challenges or having a bad day, we unknowingly push that negativity on to others. We say unkind things we don't mean, we post crappy social media posts that our lives suck (when they really don't), we have this negative energy expelling from our demeanor that sometimes sucks others in and effects their day causing a ginormous NEGATIVE DOWNWARD SPIRAL...
Practicing yoga reminds me that I can CHOOSE to be negative or I can CHOOSE to be HAPPY and THANKFUL. When I CHOOSE to be happy and focus on the positive things in my life, I am more THANKFUL for all of the beautiful things around me. When I SMILE that smile can be contagious and make others smile, I can SHARE my ENERGY and CREATE a BEAUTIFUL POSITIVE UPWARD SPIRAL that makes people smile more, be happier, and realize things don't always go the way we plan, but in the LONG RUN, things are EXACTLY the way they need to be....
