How did I end up teaching?
I always knew I wanted to teach yoga like a light switch went off inside me one day when I was in college, but I didn't look for trainings to go through till later in life. I was an avid athlete, I had health issues, my grandfather had just past away, my ex boyfriend of a couple years that I thought i was going to spend the rest of my life with ended up ending things between us when I never thought he would, and I dealt with anther ex who treated me horribly one night after one of my best friends weddings which sent me into a bad place.
To numb myself and ignore everything that had happened and I was feeling I would workout everyday. To block out the pain of everything I had experienced in such a short amount of time. The anxiety and self consciousness was horrible. But as I practiced yoga more I found myself coming face to face with these issues. I was edgy and volatile.
I realized I would never do anything if I kept on the path I did. I felt like I was at a stand still, lost in life, trying to figure out where to go and what to do, until one day when I walked into my gym and saw a flyer for the yoga teacher training. That was my sign. And I jumped on it. No more excuses no more anxiety attacks, and if so I would face them head on.
So I did, I dove head first into the teacher trainings and my God was in the most painful and enlightening experience of my life. Painful because I had to face my demons and face my experiences. It healed me in so many ways I am still trying to comprehend them. I was lucky with the group of woman I went through the training with. They all touched my life and changed it for the better. I owe them so much for helping to give me my life back.
And from there I have been teaching ever since. I've found more joy and happiness in this beautiful dance and passion in its nature than everything else in life. It's set me free from all my past pains and at the same time shown me so much more than I ever though possible for myself in life.
