#Health and wellness touch each of us differently. This is one person's story.
When I’m asked to tell my story, I often start with Manhattan, the city where I used to live. The city where I used to thrive and strive for success and happiness. The city where I felt what it means to slowly die inside, by the overbearing shadow of domestic violence. I moved there when I was young, healthy, fit, passionate, and full of life. I was working as a personal trainer and I was dating the perfect guy. “The perfect guy.” My abuser.
Trapped in a toxic relationship, I could not admit that it was happening to me, and I kept pretending that everything was fine. My partner at the time convinced me that it was all my fault — that I was too sick and too vulnerable. That I was not good enough, not intelligent enough, and that there was no place for weak people in a city like New York.
For so long, I had thought that all I wanted was to be a “New Yorker.” That I really wanted to be with him. But at night, alone in that small apartment, all I could do was cry. I could not live this way anymore. NYC, him, and the life I worked so hard to create — they were all nothing more than a trap that I couldn’t escape. In a city of millions, I felt completely alone. Then I discovered yoga and everything changed. #How Yoga Helped Me Escape an Abusive Relationship#youpractice#youfindgrace#doyoumeditate #youbewell#youteach#youreach#youshine#yourise#youaresupported#yoube#ny#huntersville #luv #theyogaofhealings#
