YOGA TRANSFORMED MY LIFE
From a very young age, I experienced overwhelming anxiety and the need to be perfect. I was an overachiever, my harshest critic, and put loads of pressure on myself in all areas of my life to be ‘the best.’ I spent the majority of my life doing what I thought others wanted me to do, instead of listening to myself and doing the things that lit me up.
In childhood, this need to succeed manifested in things like excessive worrying, nail biting, insomnia, and emotional repression. As I moved into adulthood, it translated into binge-drinking and drugging, self-hatred, casual sex, toxic relationships, depression and health problems.
At 35, I found myself in a career I hated and a relationship I didn’t want to be in. It honestly felt like I was living a version of someone else’s life, I was so far-removed from my own inner truth. I wanted the freedom and acceptance to be the version of myself I was hiding. I wanted to shake the fear I had about following my heart. I wanted deeper relationships with others, I wanted more supportive and like-minded people in my life. I no longer wanted a life where I was only ‘living’ on the weekends.
Asana and nutrition gave me the ability to understand and connect with my physical body.
Meditation provided me awareness of the patterns that no longer served me, and sharpened the skill of listening to myself.
Tantric practices such as pranayama/breathwork and kriya yoga helped me purify, cleanse and clear my energetic pathways. They allowed me to find clarity through dynamic stillness and movement.
I realized that part of letting go of old habits is creating new ones that empower and enliven you.
HOW I SUPPORT YOU
While yoga is expansive, I specialize and support you in creating habits and practices that help you deepen the relationship you have with yourself. Ambitious women (like myself) quite often fall prey to the ‘busyness’ complex - they spend too much time doing things that don’t light them up, depleting themselves of energy for the things they love to do.
Basically….I teach you how to fucking breathe. And once you know how to breathe consciously and intentionally, you can start to refine and brighten your life experience. This can lead to more satisfaction in your life, increased abundance, joy, peace, calm, better sex, better sleep, better digestion… Tantric practices are holistic and address the WHOLE energetic body, resulting in YOUR absolute best life.
