Whenever I used to hear the words yoga and meditation, I thought "hippie stuff". I had no idea about the benefits it could have for the body, mind and soul..... until I witnessed it first hand!
Playing a high impact, high intensity, high action sport like hockey, you can image how I reacted when I went to my first yoga class...."Breath in....breath out....breath in...breath out..." Oh my gosh, this is so boring I thought! When is the hard-core movements going to start? The action? The excitement? The competition?
Despite my resistance at first and the endless thoughts running through my head, I persevered and WOW did it pay off! You see true yoga is a practice, not a sport or hard-core exercise with an end result, although it can be physically challenging at times. Yoga is about discovering yourself and harmonizing your body with your mind and breath through the means of various techniques, postures and meditation.At the heart of all yoga is the principal that we are more than just a body and a collection of thoughts in the mind and that simply being our true self is enough!
I can truly say that practicing yoga has been an instrumental part in my healing process. Through a regular practice I have learnt how to really pay attention to my body and tune into everything that I am feeling and experiencing in each moment. It has helped me become more flexible than I ever knew possible, has helped prevent my headaches, helped with my PMS, eliminated my anxiety, strengthened my immune system, assisted with my digestion, helped me build strength in my back and core, regulated my sleep and nervous system but most importantly yoga has helped me journey back to my inner authentic self and find true inner strength, peace and happiness!
Along my journey, I was grateful to meet the beautiful Supriya Roy from SEVA YOGA who became my Yoga Therapist. Supriya showed me the spiritual impact a good yoga practice can have on your life and her carefully tailored sessions were perfect in assisting me back to full energy and vitality! I am honoured to be holding our 'Winter Wellness Workshop' with Supriya this June. If you would like to experience the benefits of yoga and meditation, take home a tailored program and start immersing yourself in this beautiful practice, I encourage you to come along and join us for a soul nourishing day!
