Yoga Changed Me

There’s a huge misconception that the purpose and benefits of a consistent yoga practice is to

ONLY enhance flexibility. I have met a lot of well meaning skeptics over the past 2 years. They

have told me I needed to “add cardio”, “increase my physical activity”, or “add variety” if I

wanted to see real results.

.

Let me tell you this. I SEE REAL RESULTS. The only physical activity I practiced regularly was

YOGA.  I have lost 94 lbs. I have become a lover of movement and activity has become food for

my soul.

.

Don’t get me wrong, flexibility is a huge benefit. BUT there is so much more.

.

In Jan of 2017 I took my first yoga class. I was dedicated and relentless in the pursuit of

becoming whole again. The benefits became evident almost immediately. I will never stop

advocating for a WHOLE mind, body, and spirit plan when it comes to weightloss. A consistent

yoga practice provided that for me. I learned very quickly that a good yoga class would kick my

butt, every time I stepped foot in the studio. Pounds would melt away. My body would

transform.

.

I set mediocre goals, mostly out of fear. I had no clue that what was ahead of me would

become the best thing I have ever done for myself. That this new practice would not only

change the shape of my body, but the shape of my life.

.

Yoga isn’t just an exercise. It is a discipline. It ushered in a level of discipline in every area of my

life. I met myself on the mat day after day. I gave it all I had. I prayed there. I cried there. I

sweat there. I changed there.

.

I learned to believe in myself. I learned to see my potential. I learned to expect greatness. 

.

A solid yoga practice will strengthen your body. It will create a relentless discipline in your life.

It will change you, if you let it. 


I’d love to meet you on the mat!
