My Origins in Yoga

At one time, I was unable to move from my bed for months. I was recovering from a car accident, and a virus from my youth that left my nervous and immune system in a weakened, overactive, and in unregulated state. I was burned out from a management job, and personal stress. The doctors diagnosed me with a serious autoimmune disease. Who am I now, I wondered? I was no longer the athlete or the dedicated employee I once had been. I was no longer the dependable friend or family member. I was injured and sick.

 

Instinctively, I knew balance was the key to my recovery. My first step was write it down. I had experience with mind practices from my days as an athlete and then I developed a practical framework to guide and support me to bring about healing, connection, and balance. 

 

This is my yoga. Join me. 

Heal, Balance, Thrive
