“In every difficult situation Yoga for me has been an outlet and enlightenment as well as awakening. I have been soul searching all my life and could not find any answers to why there is so much inner suffering.
When I hit rock bottom by making the biggest decision of my life with my two children. Putting my head on the yoga mat has saved me by asking questions throughout doing asanas and every pose gave me clarity in life. I started answering my own questions by digging deep inside myself and finding solutions to all my questions.
Yoga has changed my life and I started to have a more positive outlook on life, Happiness within, and gained confidence to start being more aware of my intuition.Yoga to me is serenity, my altar, my prayers and my inner peace.”
