I suffered a great loss in my first year of recovery. A trusted friend suggested I try Yoga, so I did. I was a college student at the time.
I was tenaciously seeking a power greater than myself when I stumbled upon a yoga class during Spirituality Week. My heart was broken and my mind was turbulent. The lady teaching the class was asking us to go from standing to a backwards bend....um "NO THANK YOU", I exclaimed.
But you know what? She stood behind me and guided me through it. She supported my back and encouraged me to trust. My heart shined forward and I began sobbing. It was then that I knew there was something special about this thing called Yoga.
YOGA ADDRESSES THE PHYSICAL EFFECTS OF HELD TRAUMA.
If you're suffering from a broken heart, turbulent mind. or other aspects life-on-life's terms I would love to share the healing techniques of yoga with you.
