My Yoga Story

       We are all on a journey.........years before I ever stepped onto a yoga mat, my inner athlete led me to compete in several body building competitions after years of free weights in a gym setting. Then numerous cycling & fundraising events across the Carolinas including “Cycle to the Sea”, with A.S.A.P. (Adaptive Sports Adventure Program). Our trek of 180 miles in 3 days, beginning in Charlotte NC with our final destination in Myrtle Beach SC. was a powerful experience as many of the participants were hand-cyclists, either amputees or paraplegics. I then took up the challenge to complete a Half Iron Man event. A triathlon consisting of 70.3 miles of endurance and strength as you swim, bike and run pushing your body to it's limits.......

    

       And then there was yoga........

To be honest, my first yoga class was anything but peaceful, calming or enjoyable! Seriously!

     My best friend took me to a class and I quickly found out, it was NOT my thing, (or at least that's what I told my self at the time). I was bored throughout the whole class and ended up having a panic attack in Savasana, (that's the part at the end of class where you just lie down, relax and breathe!) Needless to say, I didn't come back to it for many years! I had been able to challenge and push my physical body for many years, but couldn't accept the challenge of stilling my mind. 

 

                        I didn’t come to yoga because of the postures.

     What finally drew me into this practice was a direct connection to the calm and peaceful experience I gained each time I stepped onto my mat. The stillness finally appealed to me. I now know that I avoided yoga for many years because it was too “mindful” and I wasn't ready for the challenge of quieting my mind. What I now know but didn’t realize at the time was that this was the real “meat” of yoga. The work going on inside of me was actually greater than anything else that I was doing on the outside." 

     Discover and nurture your truest self. Get strong and flexible in your body, mind and spirit. Engage more fully in your life, shedding the things that are holding you back and stepping into life, more aware.

Let's enjoy and have fun in the process!
